Zane Green BHSc Podiatry 


I moved to Dunedin from Auckland in early 2015 with my family so that we could purchase a house and settle into the 'Southern' way-of-life. Previously I had practiced in clinics across Auckland. I took up a role with Internal Affairs for a number years before returning to my passion of Podiatry.

I initially studied Podiatry as I understood the stress and pain that came with being active and knew that there ways that enabled athletes to return to sport faster. Over years of learning from the top experts in the range of Podiatric care - I was able to apply these treatments with success. As well as having the expertise in a variety of Podiatric areas - I love working with all people and problems to find a successful resolution - whether it be nail cutting through to Podiatric surgery and complex biomechanics. Every patient is unique, individual and has their own story. I personally believe that establishing a good history and rapport with the patient allows me to focus on the issue and give my undivided care, concern and expertise.

I am very active in my spare time. As well as running and weight-lifting, I play football for the Dunedin Technical Premier Men's and I also play in the summer National League for Southern United. I have an amazing and supportive family with my partner Jo and our three children.
