What is Podiatry? Podiatry is the medical specialty that deals with injuries and diseases of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. Caring for feet may seem simple at first glance, but podiatry combines elements of sports medicine, wound care, diabetic care, and pediatrics into one specialty. Podiatrists examine and treat many minor conditions in their office. They may perform surgery at a hospital, and they may refer patients to other professionals for physical therapy or orthotics if needed. Some of the conditions commonly seen by podiatrists include:
- Sprains and fractures
- Heel pain and heel spurs
- Hammer toes
- Ingrown or infected toenails
- Plantar warts
- Corns and calluses
- Structural issues of the foot
