What is the Difference Between a Podiatrist and an Orthopedic Surgeon?
Dr. Matthew Neuhaus of Neuhaus Foot and Ankle explains the differences between an orthopedic surgeon and a podiatrist. An orthopedic surgery specializes in the surgery of bones, while a podiatrist concentrates completely on the lower extremities, which includes bones, neurological, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. If you have a foot or ankle issue, a podiatrist is the expert on any foot related problem.
