Robert has served as President of both the Canadian and Ontario Podiatric Medical Associations and is a current Board member of the Ontario Podiatric Medical Association (OPMA).
Robert Chelin DPM (Podiatrist) received his doctorate degree from the Dr William Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine (SCPM) in Chicago, Illinois in 1982 and has been providing podiatric services to the residents of Ontario for over 37 years.
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.
Robert’s mandate has led him to attain and develop specific training and skills in minimal incision/traumatic foot surgery as well as surgical skills in the correction of hyperpronation and flatfeet utilizing the Hyprocure sub-talar joint implant. Robert terms this procedure as the “internal orthotic”
Hyaluronate (HA) volumetric foot fillers are used to replace "what nature has taken away". Today podiatrists in Canada and the United States use cosmetic volumetric fillers in their practices to replace the thinning of their patients fat pads. It is like “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. Currently this procedure can only be carried out by podiatrists in Alberta and British Columbia.
Our clinic uses the latest technology to provide services that 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 capture."
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. Our reflexology and hot stone treatments not only relax you but can improve the blood flow to the lower extremity.
