Calgary North Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Physicians here at The Foot Institute – Calgary North specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Our podiatrists spend an average of ten years in higher education, the first four years in undergrad studies to get a Bachelors Degree, and the 2nd four years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to standard medical school and actually quite a number podiatry programmes are contained inside these schools. After receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another 1 to 3 years.

Upon the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Podiatric doctors have gained comprehensive health care education with a main focus on conditions concerning the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are trained to manage difficulties ranging from regular afflictions for instance, ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are much more complicated for example, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have significant surgical education which give them the skill necessary to carry out surgical treatment on those problems that are best treated through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors also have a thorough expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet submit to as we walk, run or carry out other activities. Learning about biomechanics and gait peculiarities enables a Podiatrist to design shoes and orthotics which can give pain relief and defend against many complications which the feet routinely encounter.
