Dear customer, Thanks for your question. I think you mean Podiatry or podiatric medicine which is a branch of medicine devoted to the study of the diagnosis, leading to the medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity. A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), and these physicians are also known as a podiatric physician or surgeon. They diagnose and treat the conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg.
