David Handojo – Podiatrist

David Handojo, Podiatrist in Nedlands

David obtained his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from the University of Western Australia in 2019, after completing a Bachelor of Science majoring in physiology in 2016 at the same university. He has been working as a full-time podiatrist since the start of 2020 but has had experience in both private and hospital settings during his studies.
David enjoys all aspects of podiatry but has a particular interest in biomechanics, sport-related injuries, and other musculoskeletal injuries. This includes rehabilitation and management of ankle sprains, Achilles tendinopathy, plantar fasciopathy, hip pain, and knee pain. For these, he can prescribe appropriate exercises to gradually load and strengthen affected tendons, strengthen weak muscles, and stretch tight muscles. In addition to this, he likes to use adjunct therapies such as manual therapy and dry needling to assist with rehabilitation. Other treatments that David provides include orthotic therapy, ankle mobilisations, intrinsic foot muscle strengthening, conservative and surgical ingrown toenail management, and diabetic foot management. David has also had training in the use of microwave therapy for treatment verruca and extracorporeal shockwave therapy for treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
Since graduating, David has furthered his clinical skills through regular professional development sessions and seminars covering various aspects of podiatric treatment. These include leaning about options for surgical management of podiatric conditions, updates on orthotic prescription, ACL rehabilitation, barefoot strengthening, and keeping up to date on major athletic footwear brands.
In his spare time David loves to dance, currently training in both popping and choreography. His current dance goals are to regularly compete in street dance/popping battles, and to someday compete in a national dance competition as a part of the crew he trains with. Apart from dance, David also loves singing, playing guitar, drawing, travelling, and hanging out with friends.
David always aims to provide a high quality of care to all patients, ensuring that they are properly looked after in the long term. He believes in the importance of ensuring that patients get as much as possible out of their appointments and are properly educated to be able to follow through with their treatment plan after they leave the clinic. David also loves learning about people and having a good chat with patients so that they feel comfortable and welcome. He hopes to resolve your problems and get you back on your feet as fast as possible!

Susan Cameron – Receptionist

Susan Cameron, Receptionist in Nedlands

I was born in New Zealand and lived in the North Island on a dairy farm and spent my summers in the Bay of Islands. I came to Australia around 36 years ago and worked on a mine site in Southern Cross. Here I met my husband, and we left Southern Cross for Perth after a number of years with two children. We then operated our own business for 26 years which we sold, and I am now enjoying working for such a friendly team at Nedlands Podiatry.

In my spare time I try to enjoy a daily walk around my local lake and start the day with a bit of yoga. Cooking is fun, especially trying new recipes and I have a bit of a propensity for buying recipe books.

Having a family who played so much sport, I have ended up enjoying and watching most sports, especially cricket and netball.
