How do I save a dying ficus tree and make sure it then grows successfully?

How to get the best chance for a ficus to survive when all the leaves have fallen off but it is still alive? How to best prune it to facilitate growth? What is the best balance of nutrients in a fertilizer, i.e., nitrogen, phosphorus, etc.?

    Many thanks for your help! I kind of thought it could be a lost cause but I can't help but want to try. They are beautiful when in their best health. I inherited the tree in its present state and I haven't been successful with them in past attempts.
