What is Podiatry ?

Podiatry is the branch of health care concerned with the study, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower leg.

Podiatry is sometimes confused with Chiropody. Chiropody is usually considered to be the routine care and management (but not necessarily medical cure/s) of conditions of the feet, including e.g. care of rough or dry skin, trimming toenails, etc.. Podiatry may involve care and skills that require more advanced training, including for example - those necessary to perform foot and ankle surgery.

Training, status, regulation, and referal rights of podiatrists vary considerably depending on the country in which they trained and/or work.
