Fort McMurray - Thickwood Heights Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical professionals at The Foot Institute – Fort McMurray - Thickwood Heights concentrate on the surgical and medical therapy of the foot and ankle. Foot Institute Doctors devote an average of 10 years in education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to achieve a Bachelors Degree, and the next four years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles conventional medical school and actually quite a number podiatry training programs are located within these schools. Upon acquiring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for another 1 - 3 years.

At the completion of the internship or post degree residency, our Doctors have acquired thorough medical training with an emphasis on difficulties pertaining to the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are studied to deal with problems ranging from normal problems such as fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are much more complex for example, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have thorough surgical instruction which provide them the skill crucial to execute surgery on those complications that are best handled through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors likewise have an extensive knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet undergo as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Having knowledge of biomechanics and gait problems allows a Podiatric physician to design shoes and orthotics which can deliver pain relief and protect against a large number of issues which the feet usually encounter.
