Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Podiatrists at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard specialize in the surgical and medical treatment of the foot and ankle. They devote an average of 10 years in education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to achieve a Bachelors Degree, and the following four years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to usual medical school and in fact several podiatry programmes are contained within these institutions. Upon receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for an additional 1 to 3 years.

Upon the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Doctors have gained significant health care instruction with a concentration on issues pertaining to the ankles and feet. They are taught to deal with conditions varying from usual afflictions for instance ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are more complicated for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have extensive surgical training which supply them the prior experience needed to execute surgery on those complications that are best treated through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute also have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs withstand as we walk, run or carry out other tasks. Understanding biomechanics and gait deviations facilitates a Podiatrist to develop footwear and orthotics that can bestow pain relief and reduce the chances of many problems which the feet usually experience.
