Cochrane Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical professionals at The Foot Institute – Cochrane specialise in the surgical and medical treatment of the foot and ankle. They invest an average of ten years in education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to achieve a Bachelors Degree, and the second 4 years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to conventional medical school and actually several podiatry training programs lie inside these academic institutions. Upon getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another 1 - 3 years.

Upon the finalization of the internship or residency, our Podiatric doctors have received wide-ranging healthcare training with an emphasis on issues concerning the ankles and feet. Foot Institute Doctors are trained to treat concerns extending from regular conditions for instance ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are much more puzzling such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have significant surgical training which furnish them the skill necessary to carry out surgery on those problems that are best handled through surgical treatment.

Doctors at the Foot Institute additionally have a comprehensive expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet receive as we walk, run or perform other activities. Learning about biomechanics and gait deviations enables a Podiatric doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can bestow pain relief and protect against a large number of issues which the feet regularly experience.
