Anthony is a co-founder and director of The Neighbourhood Clinic and has been practising in Fitzroy North alongside General Practice and Allied Health for over 15 years enjoying and connecting with the vibrant and eclectic inner north community that he is very proud to be a part of.
Anthony has a strong focus of practice guided by evidence based medicine. He provides a high level of clinical experience in the management of a wide variety of clinical conditions and injuries in children, adults and older adults.
His focus is to provide you with a clear explanation of what is happening (diagnosis) why it is happening (education), how long it will take to get better (prognosis), how to get it better and how to prevent it coming back (education & rehabilitation).
He has undertaken postgraduate further education in the following areas:

Complex pain (e.g. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, fibromyalgia and chronic systemic pain, nerve pain and arthritic pain)
Acute and chronic low back pain, disc injury, rehabilitation and prevention

Anthony has also undergone further postgraduate study in "hands-on" osteopathy techniques including osteopathy in the cranial field, biodynamics and integrating visceral and bio-mechanics. He has also undertaken post graduate study in sports rehabilitation, back injury/disc injury rehabilitation and post surgical rehabilitation.
The treatment approach of Dr. Anthony Dileo (Osteopath) is based on patient need and comfort level and he has experience in accessing a wide range of different ways to help people. He will always ask you what you are comfortable with and treat you accordingly. It includes:

Anthony also has a great interest in travel and culture and has travelled extensively throughout the world. In 2006, Anthony gained valuable experience working alongside another osteopath as a clinician throughout Europe and.... despite this he still can't speak Italian well. He now finds himself enjoying more time with a young family and less time playing guitar poorly. He enjoys what country Victoria offers finding the most obscure towns he can go to with his family. He enjoys handy tips on keeping indoor plants alive and will take on board any recommendations for the hidden gems of Melbourne's live music scene which keeps him in touch with his youth.
