Calgary Downtown Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Podiatrists at The Foot Institute – Calgary Downtown specialise in the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Doctors devote about a decade in higher education, the first four years in undergrad studies to get a Bachelors Degree, and the following four years in Medical School to secure a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to typical medical school and in reality many podiatry training programs are located within these academic institutions. After receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for yet another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Doctors have received substantial medical education with an emphasis on problems pertaining to the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are taught to treat complications ranging from normal conditions such as ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are a lot more complex such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have substantial surgical instruction which provide them the experience needed to execute surgical treatment on those problems that are best handled through surgical intervention.

Our Doctors also have an extensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet undergo as we walk, run or carry out other activities. Comprehending biomechanics and gait irregularities allows a Podiatric physician to develop footwear and orthotics which can provide pain relief and protect against numerous problems which the feet usually encounter.
