In brief: Foot Practitioners
There are two primary types of providers that are specially trained in the treatment of foot and ankle disorders and conditions, podiatrists (aka podiatric physicians and surgeons) and foot and ankle orthopedists.
Whomever you choose to see, seek the advice of friends and family and even consider a call to your pcp to see if they have a recommendation of a specific provider.
