Los Angeles Podiatrist Foot and Ankle Specialist

Dr. Avanti Redkar began her medical studies at the University of Scranton where she graduated with a degree in biology. From there, she attended SUNY Buffalo to earn a Master’s degree in nutrition, and then podiatry school at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. Her next stop was at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, New York, where she completed her surgical residency was trained in foot and rearfoot surgery, wound care, and hyberbaric medicine.

 

Growing up as a classically trained dancer, Dr. Redkar demanded a lot of her feet and has repeatedly twisted her ankle and regularly developed calluses and painful blisters. She visited several doctors for help, with no luck until she finally saw a podiatrist who showed her the proper strapping and offloading devices that could help ease the pain.

 

To this day, she swears that “without my podiatrist, I would not have been able to perform!”

 

 

 

Dr. Stephen Schwartz graduated from University of California at Irvine with Honors, majoring in the biological sciences. He then went on to study Podiatric Medicine at the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco.

 

Dr. Schwartz completed his residency at the Southern California Podiatric Medical Center, an affiliate of the USC Medical Center.

 

A stand-out physician, Dr. Schwartz runs Operation Footprint, a non-profit organization that provides training, medical supplies, and reconstructive surgery to Honduran children born with major podiatric disabilities, particularly clubfeet.
