Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Doctors at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard provide services for the surgical and medical therapy of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Doctors spend an average of ten years in education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the 2nd four years in Medical School to receive a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to conventional medical school and in point of fact many podiatry training programs are located within these schools. Upon receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or residency for another 1 - 3 years.

Upon the completion of the internship or residency, our Doctors have obtained significant medical training with an emphasis on conditions concerning the feet and ankles. They are instructed to handle conditions ranging from simple afflictions for example, ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are more obscure for example, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have substantial surgical training which supply them the skill necessary to execute surgical treatment on those issues that are best treated through surgical intervention.

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 undergo as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Learning about biomechanics and gait abnormalities facilitates a Podiatrist to design shoes and orthotics which can bestow pain relief and help prevent many issues which the feet normally experience.
