Dr Schiavo has successfully completed all courses organised by the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation (IOF) in the USA.  These advanced courses provide training in Interventional Orthopaedic procedures using ultrasound and fluoroscopy techniques for the precise placement of orthobiologics to treat orthopaedic conditions.  The IOF provide course certification, which is only attained after participants successfully pass IOF course examinations.  Dr Schiavo is currently the only Australian physician to obtain all IOF course certificates in advanced interventional orthopaedic procedures.

Dr Schiavo graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery. After graduation, he completed his resident years at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.  He spent approximately five years training in Orthopaedic Surgery before changing his specialty path to General Practice/Family Medicine.  He continued to pursue his interest in the diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic conditions and sports injuries, leading him to the field of Interventional Orthopaedics and Regenerative Medicine in 2013.  

Dr Schiavo is an attendee at regular global conferences and symposiums on Interventional Orthopaedics and Regenerative Medicine, bringing the latest research and evidence based treatments to his practice.
