Luke Grainger

Senior Podiatrist / Managing Director

Luke moved to the Newcastle region in 2003 taking a position at Hunter Podiatry services as a young podiatrist wanting to empower and improve the people of his community. 17 years on Luke is just as passionate about providing an optimal quality of life to patients of all walks of life.

With over 20 years clinical experience Luke has postgraduate training in running analysis and technique analysis, dry needling, shockwave therapy, tendon pathology and paediatric development and has had practical and theoretical training in the surgical correction of range of foot and ankle pathologies.

Luke can be found at the Maitland clinic and splits his time between consulting patients and managing the operations of the 4 centres.

Luke is a father to 3 young girls and partner to Jessica. Luke enjoys spending his weekends exploring the local area in his 4×4 with the family, taking the girls to parkrun and nippers and participating locally in a range of running, cycling and triathlon events.

Luke is passionate about bringing an unrivalled patient experience and level of podiatric care to the people of Newcastle and the Hunter and has grown and developed the Hunter Podiatry centres and brand to reflect this commitment over the past 10 years.
