What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist can be described as a doctor of podiatric medication (DPM), who is trained in treating the foot, ankle, or related structures of the legs. Common foot conditions such as bunions, neuroma, hammertoe and plantar fasciitis are all treated by podiatrists. They also treat injuries to the foot and ankle like stress fractures and sprains. 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 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.
