Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Physicians at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard focus on the medical and surgical treatment of the ankle and foot. Our podiatrists spend an average of 10 years in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to achieve a Bachelors Degree, and the next 4 years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to typical medical school and in reality several podiatry training programs are located within these academic institutions. After getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or residency for another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Doctors have gained comprehensive healthcare training with a main focus on conditions regarding the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are taught to manage difficulties extending from standard afflictions like ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are far more complicated for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have thorough surgical education which provide them the skill required to perform 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 endure as we walk, run or perform other activities. Learning about biomechanics and gait abnormalities facilitates a Foot doctor to create shoes and orthotics which can give pain relief and reduce the chances of a large number of conditions which the feet normally encounter.
