Apparently Podiatrists in Texas have not only been treating peoples various foot problems but they’ve also been treating ankles.
Unfortunately for them the association of Texas Medical Doctors says that the ankle is not part of the foot.
A lawyer representing Texas podiatrists: “You don’t have an ankle. The foot actually includes the ankle.”
A state appeals court in March sided with the medical doctors, but the podiatrists say it’s not over yet and that they may continue to treat ankles even though they are licensed to work only on feet.
