MD or DPM? All foot doctors are not created equal

What is the difference between a podiatrist (foot doctor) and an orthopedic surgeon – an MD who specializes in foot and ankle surgery?

  • Orthopedic surgeons typically go to college and obtain a four-year degree, then attend four years of medical school to learn about all body systems and diseases and earn an MD degree. After that, they complete a one-year internship and then a four-year residency learning all types of bone and joint surgery.
  • Orthopedic surgeons who specialize in foot and ankle surgery typically do another year of training, called a fellowship, which focuses 100% on surgical techniques specific to the foot and ankle. So the orthopedic surgeon specializing in foot and ankle surgery completes a total of 14 years of education beyond high school, and is uniquely qualified to treat foot and ankle problems.
  • Podiatrists are required to have 90 hours (about three years) of college before entering podiatry college, not medical school. They earn a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree (DPM). Podiatric training institutions are not accredited the same way as medical schools.
