Cochrane Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Specialists at The Foot Institute – Cochrane focus on the surgical and medical treatment of the ankle and foot. They devote approximately 10 years in learning, the first four years in undergraduate studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the second four years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to regular medical school and in fact several podiatry programmes are located within these academic institutions. After procuring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Doctors have gained significant health care training with an emphasis on problems involving the ankles and feet. They are skilled to address conditions ranging from commonplace ailments like fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are much more challenging for example clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have extensive surgical education which furnish them the experience required to execute surgical treatment on those conditions that are best managed through surgical treatment.

Our Doctors furthermore have an extensive practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs experience as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Recognizing biomechanics and gait peculiarities makes it possible for a Podiatric doctor to develop footwear and orthotics which can give pain relief and minimize the risk of countless issues which the feet frequently encounter.
