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. 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.

They can specialize in many fields including surgery, sports medicine and wound care, and diabetes care.
About Fairway Kansas
Fairway is a city in Johnson County, Kansas, United States, and is included in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area census designation and the Shawnee Mission postal services designation. As of the 2020 census, the population of the city was 4,170.
In the 1820s, this area was reserved for use by the Shawnee people, who had ceded lands east of the Mississippi River to the United States government. The Shawnee Methodist Mission was moved here in 1839, when a school for the Shawnee was established. During Territorial Kansas, it was briefly the pro-slavery capital, one of the competing capitals of Kansas. After the American Civil War, the Shawnee were relocated to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma). The mission is a National Historic Landmark and today is operated as a museum.
In the 1930s, as Kansas City suburbs were developing, a developer laid out a subdivision near a golf course. It was named Fairway from its proximity to several driving ranges. Fairway was incorporated in 1949 and is known as “The City of Trees”.
