A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM). They can also be called a podiatric physician or surgeon. They receive special education and training to diagnose and treat foot and ankle conditions. Conditions could be bunions, hammertoes, heel pain, fungal infections and injuries to the foot, heel and ankles. Podiatrists are uniquely qualified to treat these areas of the body. They are required to take national and state exams in addition to being licensed by the state they practice in.

Podiatrists are defined as physicians by our federal government and most states. They have a medical education and training similar to medical doctors. This includes four years of undergrad education, four years of graduate school at one out of eight podiatric medical colleges and 2-3 years of residency. In podiatry, practitioners can focus on many different areas. These can include: sports medicine, geriatrics, orthopedics, surgery, biomechanics, pediatrics and primary care.

The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) reports that there are around 15,000 podiatrists in the United States. They are more in demand now because of our rapidly aging population. Also, foot and ankle problems are the most neglected and widespread health problems affecting Americans.

Podiatrists consult with other physicians and patients on how to prevent foot problems more successfully as well as diagnose and treat ulcers, fractures, skin and nail diseases, tumors and deformities. They correct problems like bunions, fractures, hammertoes, clawtoes, and infections by performing surgery. Podiatrists also perform diagnostic procedures and prescribe therapies. Fitting or prescribing patients with orthotics to correct walking patterns also commonly occurs. Lastly, podiatrists treat conditions like bunions, corns, bone disorders, calluses, heel spurs, infections, cysts, plantar fasciitis and ingrown nails.
