Fort McMurray - Thickwood Heights Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Podiatrists at The Foot Institute – Fort McMurray - Thickwood Heights specialize in the surgical and medical treatment of the ankle and foot. Foot Institute Podiatrists put in an average of a decade in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to get a Bachelors Degree, and the second 4 years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to general medical school and as a matter of fact various podiatry programs are contained within these institutions. Upon receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for an additional one to three years.

Upon the conclusion of the internship or post degree residency, our Podiatrists have gained extensive healthcare training with an importance on conditions regarding the ankles and feet. Foot Institute Doctors are trained to deal with complications ranging from common ailments such as fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are even more puzzling like clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at The Foot Institute have extensive surgical education which furnish them the prior experience required to execute surgical treatment on those problems that are best treated through surgical treatment.

Foot Institute Doctors additionally have a thorough knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs withstand as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Understanding biomechanics and gait irregularities empowers a Podiatric doctor to create shoes and orthotics that can give pain relief and defend against countless complications which the feet typically encounter.
