  • PODIATRIST, DR. ALBERT ARMSTRONG DISCUSSES THE FIRST THING THAT HE WOULD WANT TO CHANGE ABOUT THE EDUCATION SYSTEM IN PODIATRY

AMERICAN PODIATRIST, DR. ALBERT KIM STATES, "THE ONE THING I WOULD CHANGE IF I COULD, AND MAYBE I CAN, IS THE CONCEPT THAT EVERY PODIATRIST NEEDS TO BE A SURGEON.  THERE IS MORE TO PODIATRY THAN SURGERY -- WOUND CARE, REUMATOLOGY, AND DERMATOLOGY, TO NAME A FEW.  EVEN THOUGH ONE MAY HAVE SKILLS AS A SURGEON, THERE ARE MANY ASPECTS OF OUR PROFESSION THAT LET YOU DO WHAT EVER YOU ENJOY.  IN MY PRACTICE, I DO NOT DO SURGERY: I LIKE RADIOLOGY.  MANY PEOPLE SEND ME PATIENTS FOR DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND."

DR. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WHO IS A RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR FOUND  THERE WERE MANY IN HIS PROFESSION WHO WERE 'WANT-TO-BE-MD'S.'  I NEVER HAD THAT PROBLEM AND OPTED FOR CHIROPRACTIC FROM DAY ONE.  FROM TALKING TO MANY PODIATRISTS AND ATTENDING DOZENS OF PODIATRY SEMINARS AND CONFERENCES I HAVE FOUND THAT THE SAME SENTIMENT HOLDS TRUE FOR MANY PODIATRISTS.  THEY FEEL LIKE SECOND CLASS CITIZENS AS COMPARED TO MD'S AND DOING SURGERY MAKES THEM FEEL MORE LIKE REAL DOCTORS.

IN MY FOOT CLINIC DUE TO MY CHIROPRACTIC BACKGROUND WE AVOID SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS AT ALL COSTS.  THE COMPLICATIONS OUTWEIGH THE BENEFITS IN MANY CASES.  THAT IS NOT SAYING THAT SOMETIMES SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS ARE NEVER NECESSARY, BUT MANY TIMES IT CAN BE AVOIDED.  THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING THAT I HAVE EVER HEARD OF IS SOME PODIATRISTS PERFORMING COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY, TRULY BORDERING ON MADNESS.

IN MY ULTRA SUCCESSFUL TORONTO FOOT CLINIC I NOW HAVE 5 FOOT SPECIALIST AND 8 SUPPORT STAFF.  WE PERFORM VERY LITTLE SURGERY AND ALWAYS AVOID MEDICATIONS IF POSSIBLE WITH AMAZING RESULTS.  WE HAVE A 6 WEEK WAITING LIST AND THIS IS FOR THE THINGS THAT THIS PROFESSION SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON AND WHAT IT DOES BEST.  ROUTINE NAIL CARE, DIABETIC FOOT CARE, FUNGAL INFECTIONS, WARTS, INGROWN TOENAILS, CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, ETC.  LEAVE SURGERIES TO THOSE WHO CAN DO IT BEST, ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEONS.  AS A SIDE NOTE, THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE LESS THAN 60 PRACTICING PODIATRISTS IN THIS PROVINCE DO NOT PERFORM BONE SURGERY WHATSOEVER.  I THINK THIS FACT SAYS IT ALL.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE FROM DEDICATED FOOT SPECIALISTS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY AT 416-465-8737.
