The Department of Podiatry deals specifically with the feet and the infections and conditions of the foot. There are 26 bones and 107 ligaments in the adult human foot. There are many conditions that can affect and hurt your feet.
Many people experience complications with this part of the body and all its ligaments and bones. Our feet support the weight and force of our bodies every time we take a step. Our feet take a daily beating. The most common problems of the feet are associated with constant use, ill-fitting shoes, and improper alignment. Many patients opt for cosmetic foot surgery as a means to improve the aesthetic look of their feet.
