Michael Cui - Lead Podiatrist
Michael developed a strong interest for podiatry after experiencing and watching his friends coping with lower limb injuries from badminton and football whilst studying a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy at The University of Otago. This led him to make the jump into this rapidly growing health profession. Through sporting activities and his years of experiences at a rest home and retirement village, Michael thoroughly understands how important the well-being of our lower limbs can impact on our quality of life.
Clinically, Michael devoted his time in study of diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity. Michael has a holistic approach when treating conditions and likes to work alongside the patient to develop a thorough and tailored treatment plan and rehabilitation to suit each patient's lifestyle.
