What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a doctor who specializes in treating the foot, ankle, and lower leg. Podiatrists diagnose and treat issues such as sprains, warts, ingrown toe nails, infections, hammertoes, and more. Some podiatrists can perform surgery to correct foot problems if needed. Podiatrists also treat symptoms like lower-back pain with devices such as custom-made orthotics.
