Lukasz Sempka

After pursuing studies in Podiatry, Lukasz was lucky enough to be mentored by some of Australia’s leading Sports podiatrists, Physiotherapists and chiropractors at the Australian Podiatry Association Titled Institute of Sports (NSWIS). They instilled in him empathy, passion and dedication which he integrated into all the practices he has been involved in.

Lukasz opened his first Podiatry clinic in 2005, employing 4 part time podiatrists and 3 part time administration staff for over 15 years turning it into a multi-award winning General Podiatry practice.

In 2006, Lukasz was approached by sports clinics in the Inner West & Eastern suburbs to develop their Podiatry program which Lukasz directed for 15 years within a Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and Massage Therapy allied health clinic.

In 2010, as a long standing member of the Australian Podiatry Association, he was elected by his peers to the position of Junior Vice President.

In 2013 Lukasz had the privilege of being appointed as an “Ambassador” of the Australasian Conference by the Podiatry Council in Sydney.

In 2019 Lukasz was recruited to consult overseas in Poland to share his knowledge & experience of modern Podiatric medicine in a developing profession to which he still enjoys contributing to.

During the late Pandemic in 2021 Lukasz joined the Lane Cove Podiatry family to progress the clinic to the next level of a modern day practice, introducing things as Shockwave therapy for Chronic pain and Laser therapy for chronic fungal infections of the nails & unresolved plantar warts.

Lukasz is a member for associations like Sports Medicine Australia and the Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine for over 20 years and continues to push the profession into the highest of standards of Podiatric medicine.
