Our Specialists

Dr Andrew Knox BPodM, DClinPod, FAAPS

Andrew Knox is registered as a podiatric surgeon and podiatrist with AHPRA and provides specialist advice and surgery for foot and ankle conditions from our clinics in Perth and Brisbane. He is able to offer patients advanced diagnosis and treatment approaches to help manage from the simplest of corns, through to advanced reconstructive surgery for established foot deformities. 

Since commencing practice in 2011, Andrew has had extensive experience in providing both surgical and non-surgical treatment for foot and ankle conditions both locally and abroad. In addition to working in Australia, he has spent significant time overseas completing additional specialist training in both the United States and in China. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Podiatric Medicine and a Doctorate of Clinical Podiatry from the University of Western Australia, and Fellowship with the Australian Association of Podiatric Surgeons.

 

Andrew is viewed by colleagues as an industry leader in the development of minimally invasive foot surgery in Australia and was the first podiatric surgeon to introduce minimally invasive foot surgery techniques to Western Australia in 2018 after completing training in the US. In addition to standard treatment approaches, he is able to offer patients a range of 'keyhole' procedures which can be used to correct problems including bunions, flat feet, heel spurs and hammertoes with significantly less downtime after surgery in comparison with traditional methods.
