Ankle and Foot Specialists: What We Do


Dr. William Stych opened Ankle & Foot Associates in Traverse City, Michigan not just for the natural beauty of the area or because it’s Dr. Stych’s hometown. It was also his first choice for a medical community that is second-to-none.

As a community, Ankle & Foot Associates has built an excellent reputation with Munson Medical Center and its affiliates. Traverse City has attracted some of the best doctors and healthcare support staff to the region for the same reasons you may have chosen to live and work here. With the best modern medical facilities and services provided close to the comfort of your own home, it makes sense to obtain your care with us.

Dr. William Stych’s son, Dr. Jeff Stych, joined Ankle & Foot Associates in Traverse City during the summer of 2019. Growing up, Dr. Jeff learned first-hand about the rewards of helping people by watching his father. Dr. Jeff is thrilled to be serving his hometown community through his podiatric work at Ankle & Foot Associates.
