    Aloha Kevin,

    Are you claiming that doctors of podiatric medicine are guilty of not exhausting conservative care measures before performing invasive surgical interventions when residents are involved?

    "Is this lack of training in non-surgical podiatric skills the fault of these third-year podiatric surgery residents? No. Rather, it is likely due to the podiatric surgery residency hierarchy emphasizing improved surgical skills at the expense of non-surgical skills. It is apparent that important conservative skills have been relegated to a minority status within the current mandatory three-year podiatric surgery residency model while all priorities are devoted toward molding podiatry residents into expert foot and ankle surgeons. - See more at: http://www.podiatrytoday.com/after-30-years-has-podiatry-changed-better#sthash.Rx5Ud15j.dpuf"

    Hmm that seams to go against our medical oaths.
