Dr Kent Hungerford
Podiatrist

Dr Kent Hungerford graduated as a Podiatrist in 2014 after completing his Bachelor of Health Science and Masters of Podiatric Practice through La Trobe University. It was during this training that he found a love for surgical podiatry and began looking for further opportunities to develop the surgical arm of his podiatry practice. Dr Hungerford was accepted at the University of Western Australia into the Doctor of Clinical Podiatry as a Podiatric Surgical Registrar in February of 2016.
During his time in Perth Dr Hungerford has learnt further about sports medicine, and chronic and acute pain conditions through his increased exposure to complex cases. In particular, he employs numerous conservative interventions to provide immediate relief for those with lower leg and foot nerve entrapments for which he has a special interest in.
Dr Hungerford acts as a locum in Dr Buckley’s absence.
