Sandy,

Go to http://www.Footcaremd.com and you will find orthopaedic foot and ankle specialists who specialize in the foot and ankle and have more experience and longer schooling than a podiatrist.

Dean:

The last time I looked, MD school was 4 years long and DPM school 4 years long. Most podiatric residencies are 2 to 3 years now. Most orthpoedic foot and ankle fellowships are a year. So you are incorrect about schooling.

As far as 'experience,' that depends on the individual. Are your trying to say that everyone on the site you are recommending has been treating feet longer than the average podiatrist? I doubt it. Podiatrists have been treating foot problems long before a foot and ankle MD subspecialty existed.

Go to http://www.acfas.org to find those who are REALLY qualified to treat foot problems.

Since I see both our names there I agree with your conclusion as to which profession offers more training in foot and ankle medical and surgical care.
