Dr Douglas Maclean is a local orthopaedic surgeon with a particular interest in hip, knee and shoulder conditions. He has been working and raising his young family on the Sunshine Coast for almost 15 years.

His efforts to improve outcomes for Sunshine Coast patients have included the introduction of Minimally Invasive, Rapid Recovery Anterior Approach Hip Replacement and the technically demanding field of Hip Arthroscopy Surgery.
One of the latest developments Dr Maclean is able to offer is Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery. This is impressive technology assists in ensuring precision and accuracy in developing and implementing an individualised surgical plan aimed to improve recovery and provide a more natural feeling to the knee replacement.
Dr Maclean offers a Rapid Assessment Sports Injury Clinic to ensure timely review and appropriate initial management of acute injuries. Urgent review appointments are allocated each week to ensure there are no delays which could negatively impact the outcome of these injuries.
