More About

Paul Iacovangelo

Paul has a special interest in the treatment of sporting injuries and the associated rehabilitation and preventative course of action required to ensure his clients have a good outcome. He believes accurate diagnosis and education are the two fundamentals that underpin his practice and builds trust. Paul consults weekly with a team of foot & ankle surgeons and is utilised in both pre and post-operative care formats. 

Paul completed his undergraduate degree from La Trobe University and returned to assist in supervision of students. He completed his Master’s degree in a Theory of Podiatric Surgery and his dissertation focused on grafting technique for hallux rigidus (big toe joint osteoarthritis). He also gained his endorsement to prescribe under AHPRA accreditation. 

In addition to treating sports injury, post-surgery and rehab, Paul enjoys performing ingrown toenail surgery in the clinic. He can perform a safe and effective procedure for permanent resolution. Paul can also prescribe antibiotics to manage an infection if present.

    Paul often assists students with private practice observational opportunities in his consulting rooms. Should they be present at the time of your consultation, Paul will check with you first to ensure you feel comfortable with a student observing your treatment.
  • Company Director, Australian Podiatry Association (VIC)
    Paul was a director of the not-for-profit association for 6 years. The state branch provided local podiatrists with advocacy and professional development opportunities. During his tenure, the board facilitated a merger, as it was recognised that a unified body was imperative to strengthen the profile of the podiatry profession. This transition was successful, with state amalgamation to form the new and current body, the Australian Podiatry Association (A.PodA).
