Cochrane Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals at The Foot Institute – Cochrane focus on the surgical and medical treatment of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Podiatrists put in about ten years in education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to acquire a Bachelors Degree, and the following four years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to regular medical school and in point of fact various podiatry training programs lie inside these institutions. After getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for another 1 - 3 years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Doctors have obtained significant health care training with an emphasis on problems pertaining to the ankles and feet. They are trained to address problems ranging from general conditions like fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are even more challenging for example clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have extensive surgical education which furnish them the prior experience necessary to conduct surgical treatment on those issues that are best remedied through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors additionally have an extensive practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet receive as we walk, run or carry out other tasks. Having knowledge of biomechanics and gait abnormalities permits a Foot doctor to develop shoes and orthotics which can bestow pain relief and avoid many conditions which the feet normally experience.
