Lacombe Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Doctors at The Foot Institute – Lacombe provide services for the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Foot Institute Podiatrists invest about 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to get a Bachelors Degree, and the following four years in Medical School to acquire a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to standard medical school and in fact numerous podiatry programs are located inside these academic institutions. After acquiring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists 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 post degree residency, our Foot doctors have acquired significant health care training with an emphasis on concerns regarding the feet and ankles. They are educated to treat problems ranging from standard conditions like fungal and ingrown toenails, to those which are even more challenging for example, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have significant surgical training which provide them the experience crucial to carry out surgical treatment on those problems that are best handled through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors likewise have a comprehensive expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs undergo as we walk, run or perform other activities. Comprehending biomechanics and gait peculiarities makes it easy for a Foot doctor to develop shoes and orthotics which can offer pain relief and minimize the risk of many conditions which the feet commonly encounter.
