What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a field of medicine that strives to improve the overall health and well-being of patients by focusing on preventing, diagnosing and treating conditions associated with the foot and ankle. Podiatrists attend four year medical schools that place more emphasis on lower extremity disorders than traditional medical schools. Podiatrists then enroll in a hospital based residency program to further their clinical and surgical skills.
