Cochrane Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals at The Foot Institute – Cochrane provide services for the surgical and medical therapy of the foot and ankle. They devote around 10 years in learning, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to get a Bachelors Degree, and the second four years in Medical School to attain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to regular medical school and in fact several podiatry programmes lie within these schools. Upon obtaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Podiatrists have received wide-ranging health care training with a focus on issues pertaining to the feet and ankles. Foot Institute Doctors are educated to care for difficulties ranging from simple problems for instance ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are far more complicated such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have substantial surgical education which provide them the skill necessary to carry out surgical treatment on those problems that are best treated through surgical treatment.

Doctors at the Foot Institute also have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet undergo as we walk, run or perform other activities. Comprehending biomechanics and gait peculiarities permits a Podiatrist to design shoes and orthotics that can provide pain relief and reduce the chances of a large number of troubles which the feet normally encounter.
