Meet Our Podiatrist
Principal Podiatrist - Owner JS Podiatry
Johan treats patients with conditions ranging from competitive sports injuries to general foot ailments. Passionate about sport and outdoor activities himself, he understands the importance of being active and pain free. Johan’s expertise incorporates both adults and children, implementing treatment plans specifically tailored to have long-term benefits for the entire family.
He has extensive experience in treating children’s foot problems, rehabilitating sport injuries, biomechanics, custom-made orthotics, assessment and management of high-risk foot problems such as the rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. “You only have one pair of feet and they have to carry you for a very long time. It is vital to look after them”.
Johan provides his services from within the Spine & Sports Centre throughout the week while maintaining some appointments at a renowned public hospital in Perth where he works closely with the vascular team.
Johan Steenkamp obtained a Bachelors degree in Podiatry (2010) at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa. He started his career at the National University Hospital in Singapore where he gained extensive skills in treating high-risk foot conditions. During this time he had the honour of contributing a chapter in THE DIABETIC FOOT published by WORLD SCIENTIFIC.
From Singapore, Johan moved to a fast-paced private practice in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He then moved to Australia (first to Sydney and later to Perth) where he was involved in both the private and public sectors.
