James completed his Bachelor of Health Sciences with Masters in Podiatric Practice at La Trobe University, with a keen interest in musculoskeletal conditions, acute sports injuries and biomechanical conditions. This combined with a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science from Deakin University provides an extensive understanding of the lower limb.

An active member of both the Hockey and Surf Lifesaving movements in Victoria, this takes up lots of his time away from the clinic. As a state level Hockey player and an international umpire, James understands the stresses both mentally and physically of elite sport and how injuries can impact on performance.

Having sustained many foot and ankle injuries himself, James understands the importance of tailored rehabilitation programs to return to activity pain free and prevent further complications for all patients from early to advanced ages.

Educated at the University of South Australia, Vaughan has gained a wide range of clinical experiences since completing his studies and moving to Melbourne in 1998. Sporting and family commitments helped to shape his core range of clinical interests.

Originally drawn to Podiatry after having his own knee pain cured by orthotic management, Vaughan values how much more enjoyment can be gained from sports when you have no pain associated with playing them. Likewise through watching his three children's development, Vaughan is determined to minimise any pain associated within childhood development.

Vaughan's philosophy regarding treatment is to address the cause of the pain biomechanically, and instill a treatment plan that will enhance every patient's enjoyment of life's endeavours.
