HiPodiatrists are surgeons.In the US, the podiatrist will have more surgical options for the foot than a general surgeon.The podiatrist needs to examine the area, it might be more better than you can see.If you need surgical debridement, the podiatrist will do that.Your next step is follow up with your podiatrist.I am a double board certified US doctor.Find me any time: Dr. Thomas.Please click a positive rating.
