Calgary Signal Hill Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical doctors at The Foot Institute – Calgary Signal Hill focus on the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Podiatrists put in an average of 10 years in higher education, the first four years in undergrad studies to secure a Bachelors Degree, and the next four years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to typical medical school and actually various podiatry programs lie within these academic institutions. After attaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or residency for another one to three years.

At the conclusion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have received thorough medical training with a concentration on concerns regarding the ankles and feet. They are studied to treat difficulties stretching from familiar ailments such as ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are a lot more complicated for example, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have extensive surgical training which supply them the practical experience necessary to conduct surgery on those concerns that are best remedied 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 undergo as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Learning about biomechanics and gait problems facilitates a Podiatric physician to design shoes and orthotics which can offer pain relief and defend against a large number of issues which the feet routinely encounter.
