A podiatrist is a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), also known as a podiatric physician or surgeon. Podiatrists are rigorously trained in conditions of the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg to help diagnose and treat all conditions of the foot and ankle in adults and children.
Podiatrists are the most qualified doctors to care for your feet. They complete four years of training in a podiatric medical school and three years of hospital residency training. This training is similar to that of other doctors. Podiatrists can specialize in many fields, including surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics (children), and diabetic care.
At Mid-South Foot and Ankle, we have 6 podiatrists/foot and ankle specialists, who are all board certified and qualified surgeons. They all have completed at least 3 years of surgery training, so they can treat and provide follow-up for any foot and ankle diagnosis.
