Edmonton Lessard Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical professionals here at The Foot Institute – Edmonton Lessard focus on the medical and surgical therapy of the ankle and foot. Our podiatrists put in approximately 10 years in learning, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the next four years in Medical School to receive a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles conventional medical school and as a matter of fact many podiatry programmes are contained inside these institutions. After getting a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute finish a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another 1 to 3 years.

At the fulfillment of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have received thorough medical instruction with a focus on issues involving the feet and ankles. They are educated to deal with complications stretching from familiar ailments for example, ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are even more sophisticated for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have significant surgical education which give them the skill needed to execute surgery on those issues that are best managed through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute additionally have a comprehensive 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. Understanding biomechanics and gait deviations makes it easy for a Podiatrist to design footwear and orthotics which can provide pain relief and protect against many problems which the feet routinely experience.
