Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard concentrate on the surgical and medical treatment of the foot and ankle. They invest about 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to acquire a Bachelors Degree, and the next 4 years in Medical School to receive a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to general medical school and actually several podiatry programmes are located within these schools. After getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another 1 to 3 years.

At the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Foot doctors have received comprehensive health care instruction with a focus on problems pertaining to the feet and ankles. They are trained to handle issues stretching from conventional ailments like ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are a lot more sophisticated including clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have considerable surgical training which furnish them the experience needed to carry out surgical treatment on those troubles that are best handled through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute additionally have a comprehensive expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet submit to as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Learning about biomechanics and gait problems allows a Podiatrist to design shoes and orthotics which can offer pain relief and help prevent many issues which the feet generally experience.
