Fort McMurray - Thickwood Heights Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Specialists at The Foot Institute – Fort McMurray - Thickwood Heights specialise in the surgical and medical treatment of the ankle and foot. Our podiatrists spend about 10 years in education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to acquire a Bachelors Degree, and the second 4 years in Medical School to acquire a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to usual medical school and in reality numerous podiatry programmes are contained within these institutions. Upon obtaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

At the fulfillment of the internship or residency, our Doctors have received thorough health care instruction with a focus on conditions involving the feet and ankles. Foot Institute Doctors are trained to treat conditions extending from normal disorders for instance fungal and ingrown toenails, to those which are much more complex for example clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have comprehensive surgical instruction which furnish them the experience required to carry out surgery on those issues that are best managed through surgical intervention.

Our Doctors likewise have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs experience as we walk, run or perform other activities. Understanding biomechanics and gait problems permits a Foot doctor to design footwear and orthotics which can provide pain relief and defend against numerous complications which the feet frequently encounter.
