What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) is a specialist in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of foot and ankle problems and other related structures. Common foot conditions include bunions, hammertoes, plantar fasciitis and neuroma. Podiatrists also treat injuries to the ankle and foot such as stress fractures, sprains, and strains. Four years of podiatry residency training and three years in the hospital are required for podiatrists. They may also specialize in surgery, wound care and pediatrics.
About Leawood Kansas
Leawood is a city in Johnson County, Kansas, United States, and is part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. As of the 2020 census, the population of the city was 33,902.
After the 1803 Louisiana Purchase, the area east of present-day Leawood opened for settlement. The Santa Fe Trail which ran through the area also contributed to the development of the area. The Border Ruffian War (1855-1857), part of a larger conflict known as Bleeding Kansas, damaged the local economy as pro-slavery activists from the slave state of Missouri attacked settlers, traders, and those traveling along the Santa Fe Trail. Conditions improved with the founding of Oxford, Kansas, the predecessor of Leawood. The township was destroyed by the American Civil War, and there was little left by 1865.
Leawood was named for Oscar G. Lee, the original land owner of the town site.
Modern Leawood was established in the 1920s, after Oscar G. Lee, a retired police chief from Oklahoma, moved to Johnson County. He supervised the construction of Lee Boulevard for public use.
In 1948, a housing development by the Kroh brothers led to the incorporation as a city. On November 30, 1948, Leawood became a city of the third class with a population of less than 2,000. By 1959, it had become a city of the second class. As of 2014, it is a city of the first class with approximately 32,800 residents.
As of 2015, it was one of the Kansas City metropolitan area’s wealthiest suburbs, alongside Mission Hills, Kansas, the Country Club Plaza neighborhood, and Olathe, Kansas. Particularly the neighborhoods of Hallbrook, Mission Hill Estates, and Tuscany Reserve were all rated in the top 1%, according to a widely cited research professor.
According to Leawood’s 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, the top employers in the city were:
Town Center Plaza is home to a number of upscale stores with few or no other locations in the Kansas City area.
