Olds Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Physicians at The Foot Institute – Olds concentrate on the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. They put in about ten years in learning, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to receive a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to usual medical school and in fact a number of podiatry programmes are located within these academic institutions. Upon acquiring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or residency for another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Podiatric doctors have gained thorough medical instruction with an importance on complications pertaining to the feet and ankles. They are instructed to deal with concerns ranging from standard problems for example, fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are even more perplexing for example clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have substantial surgical education which furnish them the experience crucial to carry out surgery 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 receive as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Learning about biomechanics and gait deviations allows a Podiatric physician to design shoes and orthotics which can offer pain relief and protect against numerous troubles which the feet routinely experience.
