Podiatry is a profession dedicated to the complete care of the feet. Most Doctors of Podiatry, or podiatrists, treat many types of foot problems, but some specialize in foot surgery or other treatments for congenital defects, diseases and injuries of the bones and joints of the foot. A podiatrist can also specialize in podopediatrics (foot ailments of children) or in podogeriatrics (foot ailments of the elderly). Like other health professionals, podiatrists are responsible for referring patients to other practitioners (usually physicians) when foot problems are symptoms of other health disorders, such as diabetes and heart disease.
