Steve Owens has been serving the Richmond region and the Epworth Hospital with exceptional care for close to 30 years. Steve provides a strong emphasis on current techniques and personal service. His main areas of interest include foot orthotics, fracture management, knee bracing (post op, sports and arthritis), neuromuscular (lower limb), spinal bracing and sports medicine.
Steve holds a Diploma in Applied Science (1984, Lincoln Institute) and a Bachelor of Prosthetics and Orthotics (2001, La Trobe University).
Earlier in his career, Steve worked for a private orthotic company that had contracts with many public hospitals. This meant Steve was responsible for all inpatient and outpatient orthotic requirements for St Vincent’s Hospital, Western Hospital, Sunshine Hospital, Prince Henry’s (now incorporated into Monash Medical Centre), PANCH (now Northern Hospital), Kew Cottages as well as a diverse range of private clients.
In 1993, Steve opened a private practice in Richmond called Stephen Owens and Gayle Morrison Orthotics. In 2021, the clinic joined forces with Orthotics Plus and is now known today as Orthotics Plus Richmond.
