Lacombe Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Doctors here at The Foot Institute – Lacombe specialise in the surgical and medical therapy of the foot and ankle. Foot Institute Podiatrists devote approximately a decade in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to achieve a Bachelors Degree, and the second 4 years in Medical School to acquire a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to standard medical school and in fact many podiatry programs are located within these academic institutions. Upon acquiring a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for an additional 1 - 3 years.

At the conclusion of the internship or post degree residency, our Doctors have received extensive medical training with a main focus on complications concerning the feet and ankles. Our Doctors are instructed to treat problems stretching from normal afflictions such as fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are a lot more obscure such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have thorough surgical education which furnish them the prior experience necessary to carry out surgical treatment on those concerns that are best treated through surgical treatment.

Our Doctors additionally have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs receive as we walk, run or perform other tasks. Having knowledge of biomechanics and gait peculiarities makes it easy for a Podiatrist to design footwear and orthotics which can deliver pain relief and defend against many problems which the feet typically encounter.
