Dr Brenton Hurst. | B.Pod
Dr Brenton Hurst graduated from La Trobe University in 2007 with a bachelor of podiatry.
Since graduating Dr. Brenton Hurst has been operating a combination of metropolitan and rural clinics as well as gathering vast domicillary experience. During this time he has continued to expand his clinical skill set by completing additional studies in dry needling and was amongst the first in the industry to complete this course.
Brenton specialises in sports and paediatric podiatry and and has continued to invest heavily in specialised equipment to help treat these kinds of cases in his clinics. He has travelled nationally to attend conferences in these areas so that he can provide state of the art treatment to his patients.
Brenton has worked hard to establish a cutting edge assessment and management program for his diabetic patients. This program incorporates the capacity to perform and record electronically ultrasounds of peripheral blood flow and quantify a patients sensation. All of this information will be recorded for future comparisons and forwarded to your GP to ensure the best possible long term outcomes.
Brenton is a local man having been raised in the Yarra Valley. Brenton's sporting interests include cricket and football in which he has played for several years in the local area. He has provided podiatric care to the Upwey Cricket Club for the past 7 years and his other interests include running and renovating.
