Cochrane Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Podiatrists here at The Foot Institute – Cochrane concentrate on the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Doctors spend an average of 10 years in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to attain a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to attain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to traditional medical school and in point of fact quite a number podiatry programmes are located inside these schools. Upon obtaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

At the finalization of the internship or residency, our Doctors have acquired wide-ranging healthcare education with a focus on complications regarding the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are studied to handle concerns extending from simple afflictions for instance fungal and ingrown toenails, to those which are much more complex for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have substantial surgical instruction which provide them the skill necessary to carry out surgical treatment on those issues that are ideally handled through surgical treatment.

Our Doctors likewise have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs undergo as we walk, run or carry out other tasks. Understanding biomechanics and gait deviations makes it possible for a Podiatrist to develop shoes and orthotics that can give pain relief and prevent a large number of conditions which the feet generally encounter.
