A Board-Certified Podiatrist With a Personal Passion for Treatment

escondido postcard

Dr. Redkar is a board-certified podiatrist with a special emphasis on foot and ankle pathology. To earn board certification, she had to demonstrate that she possessed elevated levels of both knowledge and skill in podiatry. Throughout her career, she has received further recognition as an outstanding doctor. For example, Los Angeles Magazine named her to its prestigious Top Doctors list in 2021. 

Dr. Redkar's passion for podiatry was inspired by personal experiences in her youth. She moved to America from Pune, India, as a four-year-old. She grew up training in classical Indian dance. While this activity allowed her to maintain her Indian roots, it also exposed her to many foot and ankle injuries. Suffering from these issues firsthand gave her a deep understanding of how these problems can impact virtually every area of your life. Dr. Redkar credits her own podiatrist with helping her continue to dance and enjoy life to the fullest. Now, as a practicing podiatrist, she does everything in her power to get her patients back on their feet. 


Dr. Redkar completed a wide-ranging education at various prestigious institutions across America. The podiatry school she attended is the oldest of its kind in the country.

I followed Dr. Avanti Redkar from Beverly Hills to Escondido, which is a 2-hour drive from my house. Dr. Redkar is an excellent Podiatrist who took time to examine my feet and explained the treatment and management options in detail. She and her assistant are professional and courteous. Thank you, now I have pain-free feet.
