As a member of the College of Podiatric Physicians of Alberta, Canadian Podiatric Medical Association and the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, Dr. Russell has completed an extensive academic curriculum to serve the Calgary community as a reputable podiatrist.
After earning his undergraduate degree from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Dr. Russell attended the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland (Ohio, U.S.), where he earned his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. He then expanded his expertise by accepting a two-year surgical residency from Kennedy Health Systems in New Jersey. This practical experience has proven to be an asset in his diagnosis and treatment of patients ever since.
Dr. Russell enjoys spending time with his family, especially when walking his dog, Lola, around Calgary’s beautiful pathways. Dr. Russell and his wife, Ana, have happily made the great city of Calgary their home since 1998. They both make fitness an essential part of their lives which their son, Andrew, has learned by example. Ian enjoys walking, skiing, and racquet sports. He particularly enjoys biking with Lola.
