Dr. Tarunjeet Bajwa

Dr. Tarunjeet Bajwa, DPM was raised in Cypress, Texas. He received his bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Business from The University of Texas at Austin. Following his undergraduate studies, he went on to obtain his four year doctorate in Podiatric Medicine from Kent State University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Dr. Bajwa then completed an extensive forefoot and rearfoot surgical residency in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, sports medicine, and trauma in Houston, TX. His interests range from simple diabetic foot care to extensive trauma involving the foot and ankle.
Dr. Bajwa believes in providing the best possible medical care and treatment for foot and ankle conditions by conservative measures initially before recommendations for surgery are indicated. He is truly passionate about helping people get back on their feet and resume their daily activities pain free. From simple sprains to complex trauma and injuries, Dr. Bajwa has been trained in the latest techniques of conservative and surgical management. The core of his treatment is to empower patients through proper education on their diagnosis and treatment options.
Dr. Bajwa is involved in advocacy and furthering the podiatric profession through involvement on membership committees at the State and National levels. He enjoys being involved in community services and events, having volunteered in several community events and health clinics in the past. He is committed to providing foot and ankle care to patients of all backgrounds and financial situations. He continues to stay current with any treatment modalities for foot and ankle problems through research and the most recent training modalities including newer minimally invasive procedure.
When Dr. Bajwa isn’t helping people get back on their feet, he loves to travel and try new cuisines. Being an avid Houston sports fan, he loves to support the Rockets, Texans and Astros. Dr. Bajwa loves to stay active through yoga, basketball, tennis and weight lifting. With these unique experiences in sports and having sustained foot and ankle injuries himself, he brings a special perspective and empathy to his patient care.
