Calgary Downtown Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Specialists here at The Foot Institute – Calgary Downtown focus on the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Foot Institute Podiatrists spend around a decade in education, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to attain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles conventional medical school and in point of fact a number of podiatry training programs lie inside these institutions. After procuring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another 1 - 3 years.

At the conclusion of the internship or post degree residency, our Doctors have acquired substantial healthcare training with an importance on difficulties regarding the feet and ankles. They are trained to handle concerns ranging from simple ailments for instance ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are a lot more sophisticated including clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have comprehensive surgical instruction which provide them the experience crucial to conduct surgery on those concerns that are best managed through surgical treatment.

Foot Institute Doctors also have a thorough knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet submit to as we walk, run or perform other activities. Recognizing biomechanics and gait abnormalities allows a Podiatric physician to develop footwear and orthotics which can offer pain relief and protect against numerous issues which the feet typically encounter.
