History:

Current NYS law is discriminatory against podiatrists without ankle permits. For example:
1. A nurse practioner with less training, and or experience, than a podiatrist, can treat the ankle.
2. A NYS podiatrist can provide wound care to the ankle, but cannot do so without a contiguous foot ulcer being present. This law has antitrust activity by discriminating againt podiatrists. They should be able to treat ankles, with or without the presence of a contiguous foot ulcer.
3. Skin melanoma on the ankle kills patients. If a podiatrist is licensed to perform a triple arthrodesis, they certainly should be allowed to excise a skin melanoma on the ankle. Even the new “proposed clean up bill” continues this antitrust activity against podiatrists without ankle permits.
4. There are so many more examples that are presented at PodiaTrust meetings.

The problem:

1. Since 2012, NYS never corrected this problem. We need another approach.
