What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist refers to a doctor in podiatric medicine (DPM), who specializes on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of foot, ankle, and related structures. Podiatrists can treat foot conditions like bunions and hammertoe, plantar faciitis, and neuroma. They can also treat injuries to foot and ankle such as stress fractures or sprains. Podiatrists have completed four years of podiatry training and three year residency training at a hospital. They might specialize in surgery or wound care, diabetes care, or sports medicine.
About Smithville Missouri
Smithville is a city in Clay and Platte counties in the U.S. state of Missouri and is part of the Kansas City metropolitan area, along the Little Platte River. The population was 10,406 at the 2020 United States Census.
Smithville is named after Humphrey “Yankee” Smith (1774 – May 5, 1857) after he settled at the site in 1822. The town was originally known as “Smith’s Mill” but ultimately became “Smithville” as it was easier to pronounce. Another reputed history behind the name is that it was going to be named Smith’s Mill, but there was already another current settlement in Missouri with the same name so it was altered slightly to differentiate it.
Silver Screen stars Wallace Beery and Noah Beery, Sr. were born and raised near Smithville.
The Aker Cemetery and Downtown Smithville Historic District are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
