Calgary North Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Doctors here at The Foot Institute – Calgary North specialize in the surgical and medical treatment of the ankle and foot. They put in about 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to get a Bachelors Degree, and the 2nd 4 years in Medical School to attain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles standard medical school and in fact a number of podiatry training programs are located within these institutions. After obtaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or residency for an additional 1 - 3 years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatric physicians have obtained substantial healthcare training with a main focus on concerns regarding the ankles and feet. Our Doctors are educated to treat concerns ranging from common ailments like ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are more puzzling like clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have comprehensive surgical education which furnish them the practical experience needed to carry out surgical treatment on those conditions that are ideally treated through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute also have a thorough expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet withstand as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Realizing biomechanics and gait abnormalities enables a Foot doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can offer pain relief and prevent countless troubles which the feet normally encounter.
