Mr Abbasian is a fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon specialising in all aspects of the management of foot and ankle problems with his practice solely devoted to this area of the body.
His NHS practice is based at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust where he has been in practice since 2012 undertaking complex as well as routine reconstructive and sports surgery of the adult foot and ankle, including total ankle replacements. He regularly accepts tertiary referrals from other orthopaedic centres and has helped develop the unit into what is today arguably one of the largest and busiest tertiary referral teaching hospitals in the country.
In 2011, after successfully completing the US Medical Licensing Examinations, Mr Abbasian embarked on a Foot and Ankle Fellowship programme at the New England Foot and Ankle Centre, Mercy Hospital, in Portland, Maine, under the guidance of Dr Gregory Pomeroy. Mr Abbasian is one of handful of UK surgeons who has completed a fellowship programme that is recognised by The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) and whose name appears on a list of “recognised surgeons” on their website.
