Okotoks Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals at The Foot Institute – Okotoks focus on the surgical and medical therapy of the ankle and foot. Our doctors spend approximately ten years in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to receive a Bachelors Degree, and the following 4 years in Medical School to attain a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to general medical school and as a matter of fact numerous podiatry programmes are located within these schools. After securing a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or post degree residency for an additional 1 to 3 years.

At the conclusion of the internship or residency, our Foot doctors have gained wide-ranging healthcare training with a main focus on problems pertaining to the ankles and feet. They are taught to deal with complications extending from normal ailments for example, ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are far more complex for example clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have extensive surgical education which give them the practical experience necessary to carry out surgery on those problems that are best treated through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors furthermore have a thorough expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs receive as we walk, run or perform other activities. Comprehending biomechanics and gait deviations makes it easy for a Podiatric doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can deliver pain relief and protect against a large number of problems which the feet routinely encounter.
