A podiatrist is a health care professional. In Quebec they are regulated by the Professional code, The Podiatry Act and by the Podiatric Code of Ethics. A podiatrist possesses all expertise and knowledge needed to evaluate and treat afflictions and diseases of the foot that are not systemic in nature.
In addition, a podiatrist can offer advice for proper foot health and hygiene, prescribe certain medications, perform surgical procedures, and prescribe fabricate or modify custom made orthotics.
