Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard specialise in the surgical and medical therapy of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Podiatrists invest an average of 10 years in learning, the first four years in undergrad studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to conventional medical school and in fact several podiatry training programs are located within these academic institutions. After procuring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

Upon the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have gained comprehensive medical education with a stress on issues concerning the ankles and feet. Our Doctors are trained to address concerns ranging from general problems for instance ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are much more sophisticated like clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have comprehensive surgical instruction which provide them the skill crucial to conduct surgical treatment on those problems that are best managed through surgical treatment.

Foot Institute Doctors furthermore have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet experience as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Realizing biomechanics and gait deviations empowers a Podiatrist to develop footwear and orthotics that can provide pain relief and reduce the chances of numerous complications which the feet typically encounter.
