Calgary Downtown Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Physicians at The Foot Institute – Calgary Downtown concentrate on the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Podiatrists spend around ten years in education, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to general medical school and in point of fact several podiatry programs are contained inside these institutions. Upon acquiring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for an additional one to three years.

At the finalization of the internship or residency, our Podiatric physicians have received extensive medical education with an importance on problems concerning the ankles and feet. Foot Institute Doctors are qualified to manage difficulties ranging from general ailments for instance ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are much more complicated including clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have extensive surgical training which give them the skill vital to conduct surgery on those problems that are ideally remedied through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors additionally have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet go through as we walk, run or perform other activities. Knowing biomechanics and gait deviations facilitates a Podiatrist to design shoes and orthotics which can offer pain relief and minimize the risk of many troubles which the feet routinely encounter.
