What is a podiatrist?

A Podiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders, diseases and injuries of the foot ankle and leg. They can perform surgery and undergo four years of medical training with an additional three years of hospital residency.

Podiatrists can detect serious health problems that could often go unnoticed, because a number of diseases show first through symptoms of the lower extremities such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease or kidney disease. They also may specialize in wound care, sports injuries, diabetic care and treat children.
