Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Doctors at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard concentrate on the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle.

After receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or residency for an additional 1 to 3 years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatric doctors have received considerable health care education with a main focus on conditions pertaining to the ankles and feet. Our Doctors are trained to care for issues ranging from standard ailments for instance fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are even more complicated such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot.
