Orthopaedic Surgeon - Dr. Shane Blackmore
Dr Shane Blackmore
Mr Shane Blackmore specialises in sports injuries, arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the knee, hip and shoulder. This includes all aspects of knee, hip and shoulder surgery.
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 is also a member of the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA) and a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) and the Australian Orthopaedic Association (FAOrthA).
Shane has managed sports injuries in a variety of college and professional athletes, both in London and New York City.
The New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases is a world leading institution, which rarely awards ACGME accredited Orthopaedic Sports Medicine fellowships to foreign trained surgeons. Shane was matched to this highly competitive 12 month fellowship position. He completed a high volume of arthroscopic procedures, primarily of the knee, hip and shoulder. These ranged from simple injuries occurring in the home or workplace, to complex injuries in recreational and professional athletes.
His subspecialty training focused on the latest arthroscopic techniques for knee ligament reconstruction (ACL), meniscal repair and transplant, cartilage restoration and joint preservation, shoulder stabilization and rotator cuff repair as well as femoro-acetabular impingement and labral tears of the hip.
Preceding this, Shane was awarded the prestigious Calvert Fellowship in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth in London. The fellowship had a subspecialty focus on arthroscopic treatment of shoulder and elbow injuries. While in London, Shane also had the privilege of working with Mr Andy Williams, a world-renowned knee ligament surgeon.
Shane has published articles and book chapters, as well as technique videos on many aspects of arthroscopic surgery. Shane continues to teach medical students and future orthopaedic surgeons through public hospital appointment where he is the Director of Orthopaedic Training.
Married with a young family, Shane continues to chase his childhood pursuits of less than competitive baseball, tennis and golf.
