More About

Paul Iacovangelo

Paul has a special interest in the treatment of forefoot pain, fallen arches, collapsed ankles, sporting injuries and rehabilitation.

He 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 with AHPRA. 

Paul enjoys treating painful ingrown toenails. He can perform a safe and effective procedure for permanent resolution. Paul can also prescribe antibiotics to manage an infection if present. 

Paul likes the challenge of problem solving difficult cases and believes it is important to address deficits with a combined approach, through rehabilitation and orthotic intervention if needed. He works closely with surgeons assisting in pre and post-operative care.

  • 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).
