Waikato's Leading Sports Podiatrists
Waikato Podiatry Clinic has been successfully treating a full range of podiatric conditions for more than 14 years including sports related injuries, diabetic related problems and general practice conditions. The clinic, an independent and locally owned operation, has grown steadily during that time and currently boasts a team of six fully qualified podiatrists.
The clinic has been affiliated with High Performance Sport NZ (HPSNZ) for over a decade. In fact, Waikato Podiatry is Waikato's only HPSNZ accredited clinic and proudly supports local athletes.
Principal podiatrist, Andrew Jones, is enthusiastic about podiatry and has always been an active member of the podiatric community. He is currently a member of the board of Podiatry New Zealand.
Meet the Team
BHSc (Podiatry), Bph Ed
Physical activity and sport led to my own personal introduction to Podiatry (Fletcher marathon 1989), which stimulated my interest to such an extent that I decided to study Podiatry myself and graduated in 1998, having previously completed a Bachelor of Physical Education. I then worked at a dedicated Sports Medicine Clinic for two years until I moved to the Waikato to go into business for myself.

I was born and bred in Waikato dairy farming country, but took off to the UK for my big OE. I ended up staying there 16 years and qualified at the Northampton University in 2007. I then returned to New Zealand and started my career with Waikato Podiatry Clinic in the same year. The Podiatry fields I enjoy include diabetes, palliative care and nail procedures but I particularly love being able to offer relief to my patients' discomfort instantly in most cases and provide on-going care to prevent further problems.

During my 12 years practising Podiatry I originally worked in the Bay of Plenty before settling in Hamilton and working across the Waikato. During this time, I have worked in all areas of Podiatry treating a wide range of podiatric problems including high risk diabetic patients through to recreational athletes and elite athletes through the NZ Academy of Sports.
I am an experienced dancer and aerobics instructor and have competed at a national level in competitive aerobics.
I joined Waikato Podiatry in 2010 and enjoy the wide range of patients that come to the clinic. I look forward to meeting with you in the near future to support you with your podiatric needs.
