What Is a Podiatrist?

It’s said that a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. If that’s the case, we take care of those humble movers—the feet—so you can take each step with confidence, mobility and strength. As medical specialists, podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot and ankle. They can specialize in many fields, including surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics (children), and diabetic care. A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), also known as a podiatric physician or surgeon.

What Are the Qualifications of a Podiatrist?

Feet are complex anatomical structures, all-in-one stabilizers, shock absorbers, and propulsion engines that are instrumental to overall health and well-being. They require expert care. Be sure you’re seeing the most qualified healthcare professional to treat your feet by looking for the letters “DPM” after his or her name. The DPM means a physician has completed four years of rigorous foot and ankle training in podiatric medical school and hospital-based residency training, making him or her uniquely qualified to care for this part of the body.

Some of the conditions treated by our podiatrist include:
