What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a specialty of medicine with our Doctors (DPM – Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) licensed by individual states, similarly done with MDs. Doctors of podiatric medicine diagnose and treat all varieties of foot ailments such as tumors, ulcers, fractures, skin and nail diseases, and congenital or acquired foot deformities such as: flatfeet, bunions, and hammertoes.

Podiatrists treat conditions such as fungus and ingrown toenails, heel pain, tendonitis, and arthritis. Corrective surgery is often performed on deformities such as bunions and hammertoes.

Podiatrists may prescribe medicines in the treatment of foot conditions, as well as perform surgery in hospitals, surgery centers, or in their offices. Diagnostic services are generally offered, including x-rays.

The Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) is a vital member of the health-care team. They are often the first to detect symptoms that may be related to diabetes, arthritis, or circulatory disease due to the human foot’s interrelation with the rest of the body.
