Who is best qualified to do my foot surgery?

A podiatrist is a highly-trained foot and ankle specialist who has completed four years of medical school with a hospital-based residency afterwards. The foot is a highly specialized organ and must be able to carry your weight after the surgery. A podiatrist is also experts in foot function, called biomechanics, to ensure that your foot will be the most functional after surgery.

However, when surgery is the best or only answer for their foot problem, they are confident knowing that the realistic expectations set for them, will lead to the problem being solved and a bright future without foot pain.
