He has won the Phoenix Magazine Top Docs Award 4 separate times over the last 10 years, showing both his dedication to patient care along with foot and ankle expertise as a leading Scottsdale Podiatrist. When the magazine asked Dr. Jacoby why he picked foot and ankle to specialize in, he joked, “I flunked knees.”

He is an expert in regenerative medicine procedures with stem cell therapy for the foot and ankle along with laser treatments. In the last two years he has treated over a hundred patients successfully with amniotic derived stem cell therapy for a number of painful conditions.
“A lot of foot and ankle problems benefit from the comprehensive options we have at the office, such as Lasers for soft tissue injuries and arthritis pain. The stem cell rich injections are turning out to be cutting edge and the results are amazing. I’m constantly looking for ways to benefit my patients with better techniques, and it is very gratifying to see them get better. It’s why I do this,” said Jacoby.
