Calgary Braeside Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical doctors here at The Foot Institute – Calgary Braeside specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. They invest approximately 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the second four years in Medical School to get a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to traditional medical school and in fact several podiatry programs are contained inside these academic institutions. After obtaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for an additional 1 - 3 years.

Upon the finalization of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have received considerable healthcare instruction with a main focus on difficulties concerning the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are educated to address difficulties ranging from standard ailments like ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are even more challenging like clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have substantial surgical training which provide them the skill necessary to perform surgical treatment on those problems that are best remedied through surgical treatment.

Foot Institute Doctors furthermore have a thorough knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs experience as we walk, run or perform other activities. Having knowledge of biomechanics and gait irregularities facilitates a Foot doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can bestow pain relief and reduce the chances of a large number of troubles which the feet commonly encounter.
