(Spin Digit Editorial):- New York City, New York Nov 7, 2022 ( – Dr. Randhawa is a board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon practicing at The Heart and Vascular Institute at Pikeville Medical Center in Pikeville, Kentucky. He specializes in open-heart procedures, off-pump bypasses, valve surgery, lung and chest wall resections, aortic and peripheral vascular surgeries, and complex cardiac procedures.

Since September 2019, he has worked at Pikeville Medical Center as a locum (temporary professional position). During that time, he got to know the excellent staff and the success of the cardiac surgery program and wanted to help contribute to their continued success.

“As I learned more about the big advances in medicine, cardiac surgery had a prominent role and it continues to do so. It was a challenging, long, and difficult process to become a cardiac surgeon, but the rewards have been tremendous in all the patients I have been able to help live a longer life” said Dr. Randhawa when asked why he chose cardiothoracic surgery as his specialty.

Educated in the United States, he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston University. He then went on to receive his medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine in 1989. 

Continuing his training, Dr. Randhawa conducted residencies in general surgery at The Pritzker School of Medicine at the University of Chicago in 1991 and 1997, respectively. He ultimately performed his fellowship in thoracic surgery at The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in 1999.

The doctor is board-certified in cardiothoracic surgery by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, and in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery. 

“I am a self-made man. I migrated to the US as a young man, worked hard, and put myself through college and medical school. I also served honorably in the Army National Guard, the Air Force reserve, and ultimately the Air National Guard” stated Dr. Randhawa about his education. He describes himself as a representative of someone who has lived the American Dream.

In addition to being a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), Dr. Randhawa is a member of the Society of Thoracic Surgery.

Cardiothoracic surgery is the field of medicine involved in the surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax. Cardiothoracic surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in surgical procedures inside the thorax, which may involve the heart, lungs, esophagus, and other organs in the chest. Alongside performing surgery, they also diagnose and treat diseases of these organs.
