Mr Shane Blackmore specialises in sports injuries, arthroscopic and robotic joint replacement surgery of the knee, hip and shoulder. This includes all aspects of knee, hip and shoulder surgery. After completing subspecialty fellowship training in London and New York, he returned to Melbourne with world-class experience in the latest arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgical techniques including Robotic Joint Replacement.

Shane was one of the first Australian surgeons to train using Robotic Technology for Joint Replacement and now trains other surgeons from Asia-Pacific on Robotic Anterior Hip Replacements as well as Robotic Partial and Total Knee Replacement surgery.

Mr Peter Gard completed his medical training at the University of Melbourne, graduating in 1986. He trained initially at the Austin and Repatriation Hospitals and later worked as an Orthopaedic Registrar at several hospitals in Melbourne during 1991-1996. Peter was admitted to the Royal Australian College of Surgeons in 1996 as a fully qualified Orthopaedic Surgeon.

In 1997, Peter travelled to the United States and completed a Fellowship in Adult Joint Reconstruction at Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston. During this period, Peter undertook extensive training in arthroplasty, which was consistent with his surgical interest in practicing as an arthroplasty surgeon. Whilst in the USA, Peter worked as an Attending Surgeon at Lahey Clinic, Massachusetts and a Clinical Instructor at Boston University.

Peter returned to Australia in late 2000 and has been practicing since then.
