Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical doctors here at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard specialize in the surgical and medical treatment of the ankle and foot. They devote approximately ten years in learning, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to attain a Bachelors Degree, and the next 4 years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to standard medical school and in point of fact quite a number podiatry training programs are located within these schools. Upon getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or residency for an additional one to three years.

At the fulfillment of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have acquired extensive medical education with an attention to on problems regarding the feet and ankles. They are trained to care for problems varying from standard disorders for instance ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are a lot more challenging for example clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have comprehensive surgical education which give them the experience necessary to conduct surgery on those issues that are ideally managed through surgical treatment.

Doctors at the Foot Institute also have an extensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet submit to as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Comprehending biomechanics and gait irregularities enables a Podiatric physician to design shoes and orthotics which can give pain relief and prevent many conditions which the feet usually encounter.
