Dr. Benner's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Benner "While studying at the Indiana University School of Medicine in 2003, Dr. Benner worked in the research department at the Shelbourne Knee Center. It was here that he realized a passion for treating knees and decided to specialize in the treatment of knee conditions and injuries. Originally from Remington, Indiana, Dr. Benner graduated from Valparaiso University in 2002 and Indiana University School of Medicine in 2006. Dr. Benner finished his orthopaedic surgery residency at The Campbell Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee in 2011. Here he received world-class instruction from physicians who author the premier textbook in the specialty, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics. Dr. Benner then completed a fellowship in knee surgery, sports medicine, and knee replacement at The Insall Scott Kelly Institute in New York City. This fellowship taught him the surgical techniques and patient care philosophies of Dr. John Insall, internationally regarded as the father of modern knee replacement. Dr. Benner has now returned home to Indiana and reunited with the Shelbourne Knee Center, with a shared dedication to a team approach with specialized physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and research staff. Dr. Benner specializes in knee replacement, knee arthroscopy, knee ligament reconstruction, and complex revision knee replacement. However, Dr. Benner is a firm believer in non-surgical management of knee problems, with surgery reserved only for patients who do not achieve pain relief with appropriate specialized rehabilitation."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Benner "At Shelbourne Knee Center, the doctors and physical therapists work as a team for a full understanding of your knee condition. This access has proven to be very valuable to our patients' overall recovery from the support to help patients keep to their treatment programs to our groundbreaking ACL surgery technique that can get athletes back to playing in as little as 3 months after surgery.

Our rehabilitation program can prevent unnecessary surgery for many knee injuries and conditions. In fact, this has held true in multiple cases where patients were told by other physicians that knee replacement was their best option.

If surgery is needed, research has proven Dr. Benner's surgical techniques and rehabilitation programs to be the most effective and progressive treatments available. Our onsite, fully equipped rehabilitation gym and X-ray department provide both efficiency and convenience during your appointments."

This has been the worse experience I have ever had with a doctor, and I am not kidding. I owe so much money and I am worse off that ever before. Thank you for nothing except more pain and less money to pay for treatments that did nothing! I followed up for additional opinions and they even...more

Dr Benner replaced both of my knees and the outcome was outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to send anyone to him and wouldn't let anyone in my family go to anyone else.
