About Stephanie Konstantinidis

My approach to care: Your hands help you participate in everyday activities for work, sport, hobbies, and caring for your family. I pride myself on being able to empathize with my patients about the challenges a hand injury can cause to your everyday life.

 

My empathy helps me achieve a greater connection and understanding between my patients and myself and it helps me tailor and teach a rehabilitation program to achieve the best possible outcome. It was during my graduate degree that I found my passion for hand therapy. I love seeing the results my patients achieve during their hand rehabilitation program.

 

I moved to Melbourne from the USA in 2011 and am a proud mother of two children. I also enjoy yoga, tennis, fashion, and watching football.
