received his doctorate degree from the Dr William Scholl
College of Podiatric Medicine (SCPM) in Chicago, Illinois in

His mandate at his practice “Aesthetics in Podiatry” where
he is the owner and clinical director, is to “reduce pain,
increase function and improve the foot’s appearance” is
consistent with his interest in the cosmetic enhancement and
improvement of the functioning foot.

He introduced the use of Hyaluronate (HA) volumetric fillers
into the foot to the Canadian public on the TV program
Cosmetic Innovations in 2001. Today more and more of his
colleagues are doing so in Canada and the United States. The
use of cosmetic HA volumetric fillers in the foot has been
coined “pillows for your feet”. These fillers can provide
relief from the painful callous build up on the bottom of
the foot as well as formation of painful corns between and
on the toes.
Just a few of the other services his clinic provides
include: Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) for the
treatment of chronic heel pain, prescription foot orthosis
using the recently introduced 3-D optical scanners for the
correction of bio-mechanical imbalances and the latest
imaging techniques using digital and fluroscopic image
Robert is also the clinical director of the “Designer Feet
Boutique” where his team of licensed Estheticians provide
hygenic podiatric medical pedicures (medi-pedi)using safest
nail care products.

clinician at the Princess Margaret's 60km walk for
Breast Cancer on a yearly basis. By providing
clinical care with his colleagues to the walkers he
has been able to help many participants reach their
goal. Robert Chelin DPM has also been instrumental
in getting the Special Olympics "Fit Feet" screening
program off the ground in Canada.. Robert feels by
doing these foot screenings we have been able to
identify a significant amount of foot pathology that
has been undetected and untreated in individuals
with intellectual disabilities.
