Cochrane Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Specialists here at The Foot Institute – Cochrane concentrate on the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Our podiatrists spend around 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to receive a Bachelors Degree, and the second 4 years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to regular medical school and as a matter of fact several podiatry programs are located within these institutions. Upon receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Podiatric doctors have obtained considerable medical instruction with a concentration on issues pertaining to the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are trained to address problems varying from commonplace conditions such as ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are much more intricate such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have significant surgical training which provide them the skill essential to perform surgery on those issues that are ideally treated through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors likewise have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs withstand as we walk, run or carry out other activities. Understanding biomechanics and gait peculiarities facilitates a Podiatrist to develop shoes and orthotics which can deliver pain relief and minimize the risk of numerous problems which the feet routinely encounter.
