Westbank Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Medical doctors here at The Foot Institute – Westbank - West Kelowna specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Foot Institute Podiatrists invest around a decade in higher education, the first four years in undergrad studies to obtain a Bachelors Degree, and the 2nd 4 years in Medical School to have a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School resembles usual medical school and actually many podiatry training programs are contained within these schools. After achieving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Physicians at the Foot Institute undertake a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another 1 to 3 years.

At the completion of the internship or residency, our Podiatric doctors have received extensive medical training with an emphasis on conditions pertaining to the ankles and feet. Our Doctors are educated to treat difficulties ranging from regular ailments for instance, ingrown and fungal toe nails, to those which are even more complex for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Our physicians have significant surgical education which give them the prior experience vital to perform surgery on those troubles that are best handled through surgical treatment.

Foot Institute Doctors additionally have an extensive expertise and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the legs and feet experience as we walk, run or perform other activities. Knowing biomechanics and gait abnormalities facilitates a Podiatrist to design shoes and orthotics that can offer pain relief and help prevent countless troubles which the feet frequently encounter.
