Westbank Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Specialists at The Foot Institute – Westbank - West Kelowna focus on the surgical and medical treatment of the foot and ankle. They invest about ten years in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to receive a Bachelors Degree, and the second four years in Medical School to secure a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to typical medical school and numerous podiatry training programs lie within these institutions. Upon attaining a Podiatric Medial Degree, Doctors at the Foot Institute complete a hospital "internship" or residency for another one to three years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have received considerable medical instruction with an emphasis on problems involving the ankles and feet. Our Doctors are studied to care for complications ranging from usual disorders for example, fungal and ingrown toe nails, to those which are much more complex such as clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have thorough surgical training which provide them the skill needed to carry out surgical treatment on those troubles that are ideally managed through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors additionally have a thorough practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs undergo as we walk, run or carry out other tasks. Learning about biomechanics and gait deviations enables a Podiatric doctor to design shoes and orthotics which can bestow pain relief and avoid many complications which the feet frequently encounter.
