Principal prosthetist Denis Shaporev has been providing prosthetic care and treatment with Queensland Prosthetics since earning a medical diploma in 1997.
Over the years, he has studied and introduced into his practice, innovative and advanced prosthetic technologies and components.
In addition to his clinical work, Denis has also conducted long-term scientific research, invented numerous prosthetic components and devices, and been active as an educator in the field of prosthetic treatment.

During his professional development, Denis formed a medical-view based approach in his prosthetic practice which focuses upon comprehensive and individualised prosthetic treatment, rather than limiting the scope of care only to the mechanical manufacturing of artificial limbs.
In implementing this approach, Denis has established a new, specialised clinic to provide patient-centered prosthetics care for patients.
Following this philosophy, Denis, along with his clinic colleagues, have founded a non-profit website as a resource for new amputees to help them learn about what is involved in their prosthetic care, thus beginning the process of reaching positive outcomes in their prosthetic treatment, and ultimately, expanding their access to a wider range of physical activity.
Queensland Prosthetics uses up-to-date equipment to create prosthetic devices, and has a fully equipped gym for test-walking and training.
