Calgary Downtown Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical doctors here at The Foot Institute – Calgary Downtown specialize in the surgical and medical therapy of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Podiatrists put in approximately 10 years in higher education, the first four years in undergrad studies to attain a Bachelors Degree, and the second four years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to conventional medical school and in fact quite a number podiatry programs are located within these institutions. Upon getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another one to three years.

Upon the fulfillment of the internship or residency, our Doctors have received significant medical education with an attention to on problems regarding the ankles and feet. They are trained to treat conditions stretching from usual conditions for example, ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are more obscure for example, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have considerable surgical education which furnish them the expertise essential to perform surgery on those complications that are ideally treated through surgical treatment.

Doctors at the Foot Institute also have a thorough expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet receive as we walk, run or perform other activities. Having knowledge of biomechanics and gait peculiarities empowers a Podiatric physician to design footwear and orthotics which can give pain relief and defend against many problems which the feet normally encounter.
