Medicine Hat Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Doctors at The Foot Institute – Medicine Hat specialize in the medical and surgical therapy of the foot and ankle. Foot Institute Doctors put in about ten years in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to get a Bachelors Degree, and the following four years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles conventional medical school and in point of fact numerous podiatry programmes are contained within these schools. After obtaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another one to three years.

Upon the finalization of the internship or residency, our Podiatric doctors have obtained extensive healthcare training with a concentration on issues regarding the ankles and feet. Foot Institute Doctors are educated to address problems extending from common disorders for example, fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are far more intricate for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have substantial surgical education which supply them the prior experience vital to perform surgery on those troubles that are best remedied through surgical intervention.

Our Doctors likewise have an extensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet undergo as we walk, run or perform other activities. Having knowledge of biomechanics and gait peculiarities empowers a Podiatric doctor to create shoes and orthotics that can bestow pain relief and avoid a large number of problems which the feet frequently encounter.
