Can a Podiatrist Perform Surgery?

Yes. A podiatrist is highly trained and specialized to perform foot and ankle surgeries. Podiatrists complete a four year undergraduate degree, then go on to complete a 4 year doctoral degree at podiatric colleges. After schooling, podiatrists move on to 3 year residency programs where they get hands on experience with patients and surgery. Podiatrists must also pass their states required tests.

Before any type of surgery is considered, our podiatrists will try all non surgical treatments. If you are still having pain, our podiatrists will take x-rays and will perform a thorough clinical exam.  Our doctors will know the best procedure for you and will be there for you every step of the way.
