What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM) specializing in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. 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. The four-year training required to become a podiatrist includes three years of residency in a hospital. Podiatrists may choose to specialize in surgery, sports medicine or pediatrics.
