Paul Iacovangelo

Bachelor. Podiatry (Melb)., Post-Graduate Masters. Theory Foot & ankle surgery (Glasg). Endorsed S4 (AHPRA).

In his 15th year of private practice, Paul is now primarily focused on treating acute and chronic injuries of the foot & ankle, in addition to providing post-operative solutions and rehabilitation.  

Paul is conscious that his treatment is not only evidence informed, but also draws on his anecdotal experience to find a practical and sensible course of action for his client’s problem, without over complicating things. 

He has worked alongside surgeons for over 10 years and is well versed in understanding the post-operative journey following Foot & Ankle surgical procedures and the rehabilitation strategies needed. Having said that, his colleagues turn to Paul to ensure all conservative treatments are explored in an attempt to avoid the operating table. 

Paul works closely with his team of surgical colleagues on a weekly basis, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists, to ensure his clients receive the best collaborative and multi-disciplinary experience possible.

Whether you’re an aspiring young athlete, weekend warrior, or active retiree, Paul will happily find a solution with your goals and expectations in mind.
