I'm pretty sure that pods get at most up to the knee, but not above it-this being based off of talking to the admissions deans at AZpod, DMU, and cali along with the dpm i shadowed and also from the input from sdn :)

Just want to add, states that have the "whole leg" is not entirely true. No DPM's will be doing knee surgery or the like. The most liberal scopes of practice for podiatrists will be bone surgery up to the knee (right below the joint), and soft tissue to the hip. The big thing with having the hip/thigh is for harvesting skin grafts.
