When do you need an orthopedic surgeon?

UI orthopedic surgeons have medical degrees plus four or five years of additional orthopedic surgery training and advanced training in ankle and foot surgery. They not only understand simple to complex foot and ankle problems but can address how these conditions can impact overall health.

When do you need a podiatrist?

UI podiatrists have a four-year college degree plus an additional four years of advanced training in podiatric medicine. They typically treat common foot ailments but typically do not manage soft tissue, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones issues of the foot, ankle and lower leg.  

Our orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists work together to provide you with treatment and therapy options tailored for your specific needs and follow-up care to keep your feet pain-free.
