  • AESTHETICS IN PODIATRY DISCUSSED BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS

ACADEMY CLINICS HAS BEEN DELIVERING HONEST, COMPETENT HEALTH CARE SINCE 1980 AND WAS ESTABLISHED BY TORONTO DOCTOR, DR. JOHN A. HARDY.  IN 2010 WE TURNED OUR ATTENTION TO FOOT CARE EXCLUSIVELY.  OUR FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINIC WAS FOUNDED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF PROVIDING CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHENEVER POSSIBLE AND THUS AVOIDING THE USE OF DRUGS (MEDICATIONS) AND SURGERY.  THAT IS NOT SAYING THAT WE NEVER DO USE MEDICATIONS OR PERFORM SURGERY, BUT MANY TIMES THEY CAN BE AVOIDED.

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS   WE HAVE MANY PATIENTS WHO ATTEND OUR FOOT CLINIC FOR ROUTINE NAIL CARE OR WHAT WE DESCRIBE AS A MEDICAL PEDICURE (AESTHETIC FOOT CARE).   WE DO EVERYTHING AND MORE THAT YOU WOULD RECEIVE AT A 'NAIL SPA'  EXCEPT THE APPLICATION OF NAIL POLISH WHICH IS NOT GOOD FOR YOUR NAILS, ALTHOUGH THERE ARE NOW BREATHABLE NAIL POLISHES.  WHEN YOU RECEIVE NAIL CARE AT OUR FOOT CLINIC YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT ALL OF OUR NAIL TOOLS ARE PROPERLY STERILIZED AND MANY TIMES THE VISIT IS COVERED UNDER YOUR EXTENDED HEALTH INSURANCE.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WOULD OUR FOOT CLINIC EVER CONSIDER OR PERFORM COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY.  THE MAJOR PODIATRY ASSOCIATIONS INCLUDING THE APMA, AAFS AND SUCH PROMINENT PODIATRISTS SUCH AS THE HEAD OF THE ILLINOIS PODIATRY ASSOCIATION CONDEM THIS SURGERY AS UNETHICAL WITH MANY CASES OF UNDESIRED COMPLICATIONS, NEVER, EVER WORTH THE RISK.   MOST REPUTABLE PODIATRISTS, CHIROPODISTS, MEDICAL DOCTORS AND MEDICAL SPECIALISTS WOULD CONSIDER COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY TO BE BORDERING ON THE UNETHICAL.  ALSO REMEMBER THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE SURGERIES ARE PERFORMED ON FEMALES FOR MONETARY GAIN ON BEHALF OF THE PODIATRIST PERFORMING THE SURGERY.  THERE IS ONE PODIATRIST IN THIS CITY WHO PERFORMS A PROCEDURE CALLED 'FOOT RESHAPING' WHERE HE SLICES OF PORTIONS OF THE TOES FOR THE SOLE REASON THAT THEY WILL BETTER FIT INTO HIGH HEELS WHICH HAVE POINTY TOE BOXES.  FIRST, HIGH HEELS ARE THE WORST SHOES FOR YOU AND OUR FOOT CLINIC WOULD NEVER, EVER RECOMMEND A PATIENT WEAR HIGH HEELS OR CONSIDER COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY.
