Donald Shelbourne, M.D.
Associate Clinical Professor, Indiana University School of Medicine
Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

Dr. K. Donald Shelbourne is an orthopaedic surgeon at the Shelbourne Knee Center and an Associate Clinical Professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine.  He completed Medical School and his Orthopaedic Residency at Indiana University Medical School from 1972 through 1981 and did a Sports Medicine Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin in 1982.

Dr. Shelbourne served as the team physician for the Indianapolis Colts from 1984 through 1998, and has been an orthopaedic consultant to Purdue University, Wabash College, and area high schools since 1982.

When Don began his practice, he wanted to concentrate on the treatment, rehabilitation, and research of knee injuries. He designed prospective research studies for continually recording and evaluating his outcomes after surgery, to include ACL reconstruction, patellofemoral realignment, and knee arthroscopy. He has also prospectively studied outcomes of nonoperative treatment for knee conditions.  Don has published over 200 journal articles and chapters in books, and has presented his findings at national and international meetings. He is best known for his implementation of accelerated rehabilitation for ACL reconstruction and for utilizing the patellar tendon graft from the contralateral knee as a means for better establishing knee symmetry in the long-term after surgery.

Dr. Shelbourne won the AOSSM Hughston Award in 2000 for his study of the natural history of PCL injuries and again in 2010 for his study of the effect of range of motion loss on long-term results after ACL reconstruction.
