Not sure if this topic has been covered before. Though it's a serious decision that needs to be made before any invasive foot surgery. I have had experience of both and unfortunately for me was unaware of the difference. Orthopaedic Foot and ankle Surgeon approximately 16 yrs medical training governed by the GMC 100% re validation. Poditaric Surgeon approximately 10yrs training 5 surgical non medical doctor governed by the HCPC no equivalent revalidation.
Personally I would opt for the Ortho every time.
I realise that both have surgical complications but personally I found the Ortho much more realistic about questions asked and expectations.
Podiatric Surgeon promised the earth was unrealistic.
