Calgary North Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical doctors at The Foot Institute – Calgary North specialise in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Our podiatrists spend approximately 10 years in learning, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the next four years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to traditional medical school and in point of fact a number of podiatry training programs are contained within these institutions. After getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Podiatrists have acquired extensive medical instruction with a focus on problems pertaining to the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are skilled to handle issues varying from normal ailments such as ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are far more challenging including clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have thorough surgical training which supply them the skill vital to perform surgery on those complications that are best remedied through surgical treatment.

Doctors at the Foot Institute additionally have a thorough knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet endure as we walk, run or perform other activities. Understanding biomechanics and gait deviations empowers a Podiatrist to create shoes and orthotics which can give pain relief and minimize the risk of a large number of conditions which the feet routinely encounter.
