Lacombe Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals at The Foot Institute – Lacombe specialise in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Foot Institute Doctors invest an average of 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to secure a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to regular medical school and in reality a number of podiatry programmes are contained within these academic institutions. Upon procuring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have obtained encompassing medical training with an importance on concerns regarding the ankles and feet. Foot Institute Doctors are instructed to manage issues ranging from basic ailments for instance ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are even more complex including clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our Doctors have extensive surgical training which give them the prior experience necessary to perform surgical treatment on those conditions that are best treated through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors additionally 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. Having knowledge of biomechanics and gait problems facilitates a Podiatric doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can give pain relief and help prevent many complications which the feet typically encounter.
