  • PODIATRIST BARRY H. BLOCK, DPM, JD MAKES AN INTERESTING OBSERVATION REGARDING THE PODIATRY PROFESSION IN THE STATES

PODIATRIST BARRY H. BLOCK, DPM, JD WHO IS THE EDITOR IN CHIEF OF THE PODIATRY MANAGEMENT JOURNAL MAKES AN INTERESTING OBSERVATION REGARDING THE PRESENT DAY PODIATRISTS GRADUATING AND PRACTICING IN THE UNITED STATES.  

ONLY ONE IN FOUR OR 25% OF AMERICAN PODIATRISTS PERFORM BONE SURGERY, AND THEN IF ANY ARE DONE IT IS USUALLY ONLY FOREFOOT BONE SURGERY.  HE STATES THAT WHILE TOTAL ANKLE REPLACEMENT SURGERIES MIGHT BE NOBLE, PODIATRISTS SHOULD START TO THINK ABOUT WHAT THE PUBLIC NEEDS ARE, WHICH IS THE REGULAR NAIL CARE, WARTS, BIOMECHANICS, HEEL PAIN AND INGROWN NAILS, ETC.  ESPECIALLY WITH THE CURRENT LACK OF RESIDENCE PLACEMENTS, TRYING TO OBTAIN PAR WITH THEIR ALLOPATHIC COLLEAGUES, ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS, MAY BE FUTILE.

PODIATRIST BLOCK STATES THAT PODIATRIC LEADERSHIP AND EDUCATORS NEED TO TAKE A LONG LOOK AT HOW PODIATRY TRAINING STACKS UP TO THE NEEDS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

I AM SURE THAT THIS ARGUMENT COULD BE CARRIED OVER TO CANADA.
