Dr. Amandeep Randhawa

Dr. Randhawa provides expert, caring service for a wide variety of problematic foot issues, including:

  • Foot and ankle pain, including all types of arthritis, plantar fasciitis and tendinitis
  • Skin and Nail conditions, including warts and calluses, ingrown nails and fungal toenail infections
  • Diabetic foot care
  • Foot deformities, including bunions, heel spurs and flat feet
  • Pediatric foot care
  • Custom orthotics, covered by most health insurance plans

Dr. Amandeep Randhawa, podiatrist, was born in Burnaby and raised in East Vancouver. She went to McBride Elementary and then Gladstone Secondary School before enrolling at The University of British Columbia where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Biology degree.

Dr. Randhawa has always had a passion for helping people and from an early age knew she enjoyed working with her hands. When she was 13 years of age, her mother was having foot pain and saw a podiatrist in Vancouver. She was fascinated and knew it quickly became clear that podiatry was a perfect fit for her!

Given there are no podiatry schools in Canada she knew she would have to venture to the USA to further her education. It quickly became apparent to her that the most respected of all podiatry schools was Temple University. A large university in Philadelphia, Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine was Dr. Randhawa’s home for 4 years, as she worked to earn her Doctor Of Podiatric Medicine Degree.

Following graduation in 2008 Dr. Randhawa was honoured to be accepted to a 3-year residency program in foot and ankle surgery based out of Los Angeles, California. Dr. Randhawa experienced some of the best podiatry training in the world over the course of these 3 years. She spent 17 months at Kaiser Permanente – a leading hospital organization in the USA well known for training some of the best doctors in the world. She was also fortunate to be able to spend time at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Loma Linda where she had extensive training in wound care as well as further surgical and medical training. Fortunately, Dr. Randhawa’s residency training was very well rounded and included time spent in the offices of some highly-successful and well-trained podiatrists throughout the Southland area.

Upon the completion of her residency training, Dr. Randhawa was invited to join a premier private practice in Los Angeles. Though she enjoyed her time in Los Angeles, she constantly missed Vancouver and in December 2012 made the move back home.

Since returning to Vancouver Dr. Randhawa has established Metro Vancouver Podiatry and has quickly become very active in the community. She is a guest writer for English language newspaper The Indo-Canadian Voice where she wrote weekly articles called Focus on Feet and now contributes on a regular basis. She regularly appears on radio stations such as RJ1200 and RedFM to discuss the basics of foot and ankle care. In April of 2013, Dr. Randhawa was elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the BC Podiatric Medical Association and is currently the secretary for the association. Always dedicated to the community Dr. Randhawa is a Clinical Director of the Fit Feet Special Olympics program and helps to organize the ShoeRenu program in Vancouver.

Most importantly, Dr. Randhawa has been focused on healing feet all over the Metro Vancouver area!
