A podiatrist, or a doctor of podiatric medicine, is the only health care professional whose entire training focuses on the foot and ankle. As a specialist in foot care, the podiatrist receives widespread training in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot and ankle issues by medical and surgical methods. After getting an undergraduate degree, the podiatric doctor spends four years in a college of podiatric medicine to attain a doctorate degree. Finding the best podiatrist in your area is just as important as selecting a general health physician.
One of the more common conditions treated by a foot doctor is a bunion. Having a bunion on your feet can ruin a woman’s self confidence in dress shoes or inhibit physical ability in sports, especially running or walking. A foot doctor can give treatment to bunions by providing a custom shoe or actually performing bunion surgery, where they will cut away bone, often called ‘shaving the bump’. Foot doctors also treat ingrown toenails and do corn removal. Ingrown toenails are due to the penetration of the edges of the toenail into the side of the toe. Ingrown toenails can get infected and be very painful. Both ingrown toenails and corn removal are both commonplace in a foot doctor’s office. Corns and calluses are areas of thick skin that result from excessive pressure or friction over a boney prominence. Calluses and corn removal is easily and quickly done by any foot doctor. Corns are area of thickened skin formed through friction or rough activity usually. Call today to schedule an appointment!
As mentioned, foot doctors commonly treat bunions. Another common condition treated by a podiatrist is hammertoe surgery. The most common reason hammertoe surgery is performed is due to shoes but can also be due to tendons in the foot causing the toes to tighten up and bend. Hammertoe can be uncomfortable and unsightly but it is easily treated. Many people go their entire lives feeling embarrassed or trying to hide a bunion or hammertoe never realizing that podiatric surgery is an easy, quick procedure to remove them.
