Cochrane Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Specialists at The Foot Institute – Cochrane specialize in the surgical and medical therapy of the ankle and foot. Our doctors invest about ten years in higher education, the first four years in undergrad studies to receive a Bachelors Degree, and the 2nd four years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles typical medical school and in fact quite a number podiatry programs are located inside these institutions. After securing a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for another one to three years.

Upon the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have gained substantial health care training with a concentration on problems regarding the ankles and feet. They are instructed to deal with difficulties ranging from simple afflictions like fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are a lot more intricate for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have thorough surgical education which give them the prior experience vital to carry out surgical treatment on those problems that are best treated through surgical treatment.

Our Doctors also have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet withstand as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Realizing biomechanics and gait irregularities empowers a Podiatric doctor to design shoes and orthotics that can provide pain relief and avoid countless complications which the feet generally encounter.
