Calgary Braeside Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Doctors at The Foot Institute – Calgary Braeside specialize in the surgical and medical treatment of the ankle and foot. Our podiatrists devote an average of 10 years in learning, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to achieve a Bachelors Degree, and the 2nd four years in Medical School to get a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to conventional medical school and as a matter of fact various podiatry programs are located within these institutions. After securing a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute finish a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

At the conclusion of the internship or residency, our Podiatric doctors have received considerable medical education with a focus on problems pertaining to the ankles and feet. They are taught to address problems ranging from standard conditions for instance, fungal and ingrown toenails, to those which are more complex such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have comprehensive surgical education which give them the prior experience required to conduct surgery on those concerns that are best handled through surgical intervention.

Our Doctors likewise have a thorough expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet undergo as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Knowing biomechanics and gait abnormalities enables a Foot doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can give pain relief and defend against numerous problems which the feet typically encounter.
