Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Physicians here at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard specialise in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. They invest approximately 10 years in education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to secure a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to receive a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles general medical school and in fact several podiatry programs lie within these institutions. After receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatric physicians have obtained extensive medical instruction with a stress on concerns involving the feet and ankles. They are skilled to treat problems extending from common ailments for example, fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are far more puzzling such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have thorough surgical instruction which give them the practical experience essential to conduct surgical treatment on those conditions that are best treated through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute furthermore have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs withstand as we walk, run or perform other activities. Understanding biomechanics and gait deviations facilitates a Podiatric physician to create footwear and orthotics which can give pain relief and help prevent many conditions which the feet generally encounter.
