Specialist Foot Surgeon's Story

An Advanced Practice Led by a Specialist Podiatric Foot Surgeon

Dr. Hungerford is a nationally registered Specialist Podiatric Surgeon who has worked and trained across the world with a particular interest in the treatment of bunion and hammertoe deformities as well as managing lower limb chronic pain.

Internationally, Kent has advanced his knowledge with rotations in China and the United States of America. This has allowed him to further develop himself as a specialist in the surgical treatment of the foot with a focus on minimally invasive, or keyhole, foot surgery.

Dr. Hungerford consults out of Shellharbour and Warrawong specialising in keyhole foot surgery, bunion correction, hammertoe correction, flat feet, ingrown toenails, heel pain and Morton’s Neuroma. He also focuses on non-pharmacological management of chronic pain of the lower limb.

Dr. Kent Hungerford is a nationally registered Specialist Podiatric Surgeon through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). He is a member of the Australian College of Podiatric Surgeons (ACPS) and a member of the Australian Podiatry Association (APodA).

After over a decade working and training across Australia and the globe, Dr Kent Hungerford returned home to the South Coast of New South Wales and settled down to provide comprehensive care for the community he grew up in.

Relieve Health Group offers a broad range of specialised podiatry, podiatric surgical and pain management clinical services. We also offer patient and practitioner education to ensure world-class education is readily accessible to all Australians.

While our services are primarily focused on the allied health discipline of Podiatry, we use other specialised interventions including PBMT laser therapy, injection therapies as well as minor and major surgical options.

We only use the most current, evidence-based practices to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

What is a Podiatric Surgeon?

Podiatric surgeons are specialised podiatrists who have undertaken further surgical qualifications. After completing a standard tertiary qualification in podiatry, they undertake several years of post-graduate formal surgical training. This training is under the instruction of senior podiatric surgeons as well as medical doctors including those specialised in orthopaedics, vascular, general medicine and other medical specialties. Following the successful completion of this training, the title of podiatric surgeon, a recognised specialist registration category under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority (AHPRA), is awarded.


All podiatric surgeons are members of a surgical college (Australasian College of Podiatric Surgery) and undertake continuing professional development activities of a standard expected of all healthcare professionals. Their training and governance is accredited and provided under AHPRA as per all registered health and medical professionals.
