What is a Podiatrist?

A podiatrist, or foot doctor, specializes in the treatment and diagnosis of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower extremities. A podiatrist can also perform surgery on the foot and ankle. Some of the specialties they perform are reconstructive surgery, sports medicine, dermatological podiatry, and even forensic podiatry. Four-year podiatric medical school is followed by a surgical based residency.
