Frequently asked Question 2:
What is the difference between a podiatrist and an orthopedic surgeon?
The difference between the podiatrist and an orthopedic surgeon is really in the scope of practice and the training. An orthopedic surgeon is an MD that was trained in orthopedic medicine for four years after medical school sometimes a little bit longer that if they wanted to specialized a particular part of the skeletal system such as foot and ankle where a podiatrist enters his specialized training in foot and ankle immediately after medical school while in residency and is trained anywhere from 2-4 years in foot and ankle medicine in surgery in particular. In addition to that, podiatrists are trained in area such as emergency medicine, internal medicine, endocrinology, anesthesia and ER as well.
