Podiatry Melbourne

Podiatry (or podiatric medicine) is a branch of medicine that is devoted to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders involving the foot, ankle, and lower limbs.

A podiatrist treats skin and toenail conditions, muscle or bone disorders, and restores a patient’s walking and running abilities to normal function.

Podiatry is one of the three medical professions, including medicine and dentistry, which can legally perform surgical procedures on patients as well as provide direct professional medical attention.
