Medicine Hat Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical professionals at The Foot Institute – Medicine Hat provide services for the medical and surgical therapy of the ankle and foot. Our podiatrists invest an average of 10 years in higher education, the first 4 years in undergrad studies to secure a Bachelors Degree, and the next 4 years in Medical School to obtain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School corresponds to typical medical school and in fact various podiatry programs are located within these institutions. Upon receiving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another 1 to 3 years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have obtained extensive medical instruction with a focus on problems pertaining to the ankles and feet. Our Doctors are trained to handle conditions stretching from simple problems like ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are much more perplexing like clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have considerable surgical instruction which furnish them the prior experience required to carry out surgical treatment on those concerns that are ideally handled through surgical intervention.

Doctors at the Foot Institute also have a thorough expertise 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. Knowing biomechanics and gait abnormalities makes it easy for a Foot doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can give pain relief and avoid countless conditions which the feet generally encounter.
