Board Certified Podiatrist | Your Total Foot Care Specialist
Podiatrists are qualified to detect the early stages of diseases that exhibit warning signs in the lower extremities, such as diabetes, arthritis, and cardiovascular disease, and they can manage foot conditions that may pose an ongoing threat to a patient’s overall health.
After completion of an undergraduate degree and a four-year post-graduate education at an accredited podiatric medical school, a degree of Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) is awarded. Although identical in length to programs at medical schools for medical doctors (MDs), the podiatric physician specializes in conditions of the foot and ankle.
After podiatric medical school, a post-graduate residency in podiatric medicine and surgery is required. These residencies are often integrated with residencies for MDs and provide similar training. The main difference is the larger volume of cases and intensive focus on the foot and ankle.
