Westlock Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Specialists here at The Foot Institute – Westlock specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Podiatrists invest about 10 years in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to secure a Bachelors Degree, and the next four years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to general medical school and in fact several podiatry programmes are contained inside these schools. After attaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

Upon the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have gained extensive health care training with an emphasis on concerns involving the feet and ankles. Foot Institute Doctors are taught to address complications stretching from typical conditions like ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are much more complicated such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have thorough surgical instruction which give them the prior experience crucial to perform surgical treatment on those problems that are ideally treated through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute additionally have a thorough 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. Learning about biomechanics and gait peculiarities permits a Foot doctor to develop shoes and orthotics which can offer pain relief and protect against a large number of conditions which the feet routinely experience.
