Medicine Hat Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals at The Foot Institute – Medicine Hat focus on the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. They put in around a decade in higher education, the first 4 years in undergraduate studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the second 4 years in Medical School to attain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles traditional medical school and as a matter of fact quite a number podiatry programmes lie inside these institutions. Upon securing a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute carry out a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

At the fulfillment of the internship or residency, our Podiatric doctors have received wide-ranging healthcare training with an emphasis on complications involving the ankles and feet. They are studied to address problems varying from usual afflictions like ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are even more complex for example clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have thorough surgical instruction which give them the skill necessary to execute surgical treatment on those complications that are best remedied through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute additionally have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs undergo as we walk, run or carry out other activities. Learning about biomechanics and gait abnormalities makes it possible for a Podiatric physician to design footwear and orthotics which can bestow pain relief and reduce the chances of a large number of problems which the feet generally encounter.
