About Ben Stasiak…
I started my professional career as a laboratory technician working in the department of pathology at the Royal Brisbane Hospital. Although I did enjoy my time there I always wanted a more clinical role and to deal directly with patients rather than being confined to a laboratory.
So it was in 2003 that I graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry) and started my life as a full time Podiatrist. Since then I have gained valuable experience in all facets of the profession. I pride myself on being friendly, thorough and efficient to provide the best possible service for you.Whether it is general foot care, diabetic screening or any lower limb aches and pains, all are welcome. I am able to achieve great results for lower limb complaints using customized orthotics inserts to address biomechanical abnormalities. I also provide a more “hands on” approach when treating lower limb complaints through foot mobilization and manipulation therapy which I believe is a more complete treatment approach versus orthotic therapy solely. Being an active cyclist for the past 20 years (8 years competitively) I have developed a particular interest in cycling biomechanics and have great understanding from both a riders and a clinical point of view. Using specifically designed custom orthotics I have successfully treated many riders for common cycling problems (foot pain/numbness, knee, hip and lower back complaints) enabling them to ride pain free and more efficiently. I am always up for a challenge and welcome all new patients.
About Phoebe Hinds…
I’m a new graduate, finishing Bachelor of Podiatry at QUT in 2018 and this year have been privileged to start my professional career at First in Feet Podiatry.
Previous to podiatry I studied for a year at Sheridan College Wyoming USA where I was a student athlete on scholarship for basketball. Basketball was always a passion of mine growing up, and I was lucky enough to be involved in teams at a junior, senior and state level in Queensland.
I was drawn towards podiatry as my family and I have always struggled with our feet and I was curious in how podiatrists can solve such problems – whether through orthoses, soft tissue therapies or other means. As I commenced studying podiatry I realized this career was able to offer me so much more; not only problem solving skills but a sense of fulfilment in helping and caring for patients.
This year I am looking forward to expanding and building upon my knowledge of biomechanics and sports injuries and becoming proficient in orthoses design and soft tissue therapies. In addition to this, I am motivated in improving my clinical skills including general foot and callous care and diabetes assessment. I’m excited and am grateful for this new position and working with a diverse caseload of patients.
