Podiatry (formerly known as Chiropody in the United States) is a medical specialty practiced by a licensed Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (D.P.M.).
Podiatrists may independently diagnose, treat and prescribe medicine for disorders of the foot. They may perform surgical corrections of foot pathology and in some states perform complex ankle reconstruction.
