OUR FOOT SUPPORT TEAM
Steve has been practicing podiatry since 1995 and has worked in a variety of specialised areas in both the public and private sectors. He consulted to the Fremantle Football Club as their team podiatrist from 1999 until 2005 and was part of the club's inaugural medical team in 1994.
Between 1996 and 2002, Steve was a Director of the Australian Podiatry Association (WA Branch). Steve has worked extensively in paediatric podiatry, working in early intervention teams for a number of years treating childhood foot problems.
Steve lectured undergraduate podiatry students on sports and paediatric podiatry units. He established an outpatient ulcer clinic for diabetic patients at Osborne Park Hospital where he was Head of Department for 8 years, before leaving to work in private practice. Steve now focuses his attention on the young athlete and complex bio-mechanical cases.
Outside of podiatry, Steve enjoys keeping fit by running, cycling and kayaking. He is a keen golfer and enjoys spending time with his family.
