Famous Feet

When it comes to sports medicine, Dr. Mathews can’t “put a foot wrong”. He is currently the team podiatrist for the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Simon Fraser University Athletic Department, as well as providing podiatric services to Air Canada and YVR international airport. Dr. Mathews has also treated athletes from the Canadian National Lacrosse team, the National Wrestling Team and the B.C. Lions.

In preparation for their participation in the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympic Games and 2002 FIBA World Basketball Championships, Dr. Mathews provided foot care, mainly in the form of custom orthotics, to the Canadian Men’s National Basketball Team.


“Before Dr. Roy performed the ‘Tricorrectional Buninectomy’ I was sidelined from my sport! Now just 10 weeks post-op I am back running and training hard with my sights on the world championships.”

– Natasha Filliol, Canadian Tri-athlete
