In addition, he also specializes in revision surgery, including anatomic and reverse shoulder arthroplasty, cartilage restoration/transplantation, and multi-ligament knee reconstruction.
Dr. Cancienne attended Catholic High School in Baton Rouge, LA, and then attended Tufts University where he was awarded all-conference and academic 1st team honors on the football team.

He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on a wide variety of Orthopaedic topics and has presented his research both nationally and internationally over 200 times. His recent research has incorporated the application of biologic therapies to augment healing in both operative and non-operative settings. He is also involved in multiple orthopedic sports medicine societies such as the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, the Arthroscopy Association of North America, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
