Dr. Shane Blackmore specialises in sports injuries, arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the knee, hip and shoulders. This includes all aspects of knee, hip and shoulder surgery. His practice focuses on the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques including Anterior Hip Replacement and Robotic Joint Replacement.
Shane was the first surgeon on the Sunshine Coast trained and accredited with performing Robotic Joint Surgery. As part of his fellowship in New York in 2013, Shane learned robotic hip and knee replacement techniques, including Anterior Hip Replacement. Shane has over 10 years of experience in Robotic Joint Replacement and often has other surgeons visit him in the theatre to observe and learn about Robotic Joint Replacement including other surgeons here on the Sunshine Coast.
He is one of only a few Australian-trained surgeons to have his training accredited by both the Arthroscopic Association of North America (AANA) and American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM).
Shane has subspecialty training focused on the latest arthroscopic techniques for knee ligament reconstruction (ACL tears), meniscal repair and transplant, cartilage restoration and joint preservation. Shane has a special interest in multi-ligament (complex) knee injuries and revision ligament reconstruction for failed ACL reconstructions.
Preceding his fellowship in New York, Shane was awarded the prestigious Calvert Fellowship in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery in London, England. The fellowship had a subspecialty focus on arthroscopic treatment of shoulder injuries. Shane has a special interest in shoulder dislocations and their management as well as rotator cuff tears.
Shane has published articles and book chapters, as well as technique videos on many aspects of arthroscopic surgery. Married with a young family, Shane continues to chase his childhood pursuits of less-than-competitive baseball, tennis and golf.
