Podiatry is the medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the feet and ankles. Podiatrists diagnose and treat a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions, including acute injuries, such as sprains and fractures, as well as chronic conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis. Like other physicians, podiatrists are trained to diagnose and treat disease, but their unique expertise allows them to diagnose and treat conditions that would be difficult for other doctors to spot. They also provide care for routine foot health issues such as foot odor and fungal nails.
Yes, podiatrists are real medical doctors. The confusion may arise from the fact that they do not go to traditional medical school, but rather a medical school specifically dedicated to podiatry. Instead of having the credentials “MD” (medical doctor) after their name, they have “DPM” (doctor of podiatric medicine). These specialists are dedicated to helping people improve the health of their feet and ankles and receive rigorous training and expertise in the treatment and diagnosis of foot and ankle-related dysfunction and disease.
Podiatrists can diagnose and treat a wide number of medical conditions affecting the feet and ankles, from diseases to injuries. Common conditions podiatrists diagnose include:
⦁ Fractures and sprains
⦁ Bunions and hammertoes
⦁ Growing pains
⦁ Heel pain
⦁ Morton’s neuroma
⦁ Athlete’s foot (foot fungus)
These are only a few examples of the conditions that podiatrists can diagnose and treat; if you have a foot or ankle-related problem that is not listed here, please call our office for more information!
If you have a medical concern related to your feet or ankles, it is important to find a podiatrist who can take care of all of your problems and provide you with top-level care. To make an appointment, call the podiatrist’s office and pick a time that works best for you. Depending on patient volume, requested appointments may be several days or even a few weeks from the date the appointment was made.
Finding a podiatrist that can provide high quality care can be a challenge, but there are a few things to keep in mind to help streamline the process. First, look for a podiatrist who has experience treating your specific concern; whether you have an ankle sprain or bunion, a podiatrist who has experience treating your specific condition will be able to provide a higher level of care. Second, consider the podiatrist’s certifications. Podiatrists who can provide the best care are board-certified; this also shows the doctor’s dedication to their practice, as board certification requires additional training and regular updates to ensure the physician is up-to-date with the latest treatments and practices. Finally, consider the podiatrist’s experience: Are they new to the field, or have they been practicing for decades? While new doctors can bring fresh insight to the field and adhere to protocol strictly, experienced physicians can diagnose and treat conditions with limited information, all without using any reference material. The medical professionals at New York Foot Experts are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service at each and every visit.
