Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Podiatrists here at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard focus on the surgical and medical therapy of the foot and ankle. They devote around 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to secure a Bachelors Degree, and the second four years in Medical School to attain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to regular medical school and in fact a number of podiatry programs are located within these schools. After attaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another 1 - 3 years.

At the conclusion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have received considerable medical training with a concentration on issues concerning the ankles and feet. They are taught to care for problems ranging from familiar disorders for example, fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are much more complicated such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have thorough surgical education which provide them the experience vital to conduct surgery on those problems that are best remedied through surgical treatment.

Our Doctors likewise have a comprehensive 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 activities. Knowing biomechanics and gait peculiarities facilitates a Podiatric physician to create footwear and orthotics which can bestow pain relief and defend against numerous problems which the feet commonly encounter.
