Foot and Ankle Clinic Of Western Oklahoma
What is a Podiatric Physician?

A Podiatrist, DPM, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, is the only healthcare professional whose total training focuses
mainly on the foot, ankle and related body systems.  As a specialist in foot care, the podiatrist receives extensive
training in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot and disorders by medical and surgical means. After
obtaining an undergraduate degree, the Podiatric doctor spends four years in a college of Podiatric Medicine to
obtain a doctorate degree.  Many podiatrists further their education by participating in a post-graduate residency
program at an approved hospital or university. Following their doctorate degree, each podiatrist must pass
national and state examinations in order to be licensed by the state/province in which he/she will practice.
What does a Podiatrist do?

The Podiatric physician cares for people of all ages,
treating any foot problem.  The most common
disorders include bunions, heel pain/spurs,
hammertoes, neuromas, ingrown toenails, warts, corns
and calluses.  The Podiatric physician also renders
care of sprains, fractures, infections and injuries of the
foot, ankle and heel.  If your Podiatric Surgeon is
certified/qualified by the American Board of Podiatric
Surgery, he or she has successfully completed a
credential and examination process and has
demonstrated knowledge of podiatric surgery,
including the diagnosis of general medical problems
and surgical management of foot diseases, deformities
and trauma of the foot, ankle and related structures.
Why is a Podiatrist beneficial to a community?

It's no surprise that our feet often hurt considering that an average day of walking exerts a force on the feet
that's equal to several hundred tons. All that dashing around makes feet more prone to injury than any other
part of the body.

Studies show that 75 percent of Americans experience problems at some time in their lives. But despite the
millions of aching feet out there, many of us don't seek the medical attention we need for relief. Foot pain is
never normal, and you shouldn't be resigned to teetering around on sore feet.
