He worked at Professorial units at the Royal London and Charing Cross Hospitals.
On gaining Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Mr Alam went on to complete a Master of Surgery (MS) research degree in Biomechanics and Bioengineering at Imperial College London, receiving awards from the Arthritis Research Campaign, the Royal College of Surgeons and the Hammersmith Hospitals Trustees. This research degree involved developing and validating a novel measuring device for diagnosing and monitoring knee ligament injuries, including the ACL, PCL, MCL and LCL & PLC complex. The device is pending patent and continues to be utilised to aid the treatment of knee ligament injuries. During this period Mr Alam published in international journals on topics related to knee injuries, knee diagnosis, computer navigated surgery and total knee replacement biomechanics and bioengineering.
Mr Alam was then appointed to the NE Thames (RLH) Orthopaedic & Trauma rotation. After being awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery in 2012, Mr Alam was appointed to the Specialist Register. He then completed the Knee and Lower Limb Trauma fellowship at University Hospitals Southampton (UHS), having been trained in all aspects of Knee Surgery, particularly complex and revision ACL and multi-ligament surgery, unicompartmental knee resurfacing/replacement and revision knee replacements. The University Hospitals Southampton Knee Unit is the UK centre for the European Knee Fellowship. Mr Alam has also completed visiting fellowships to the USA, UAE, Italy and South Africa.
Throughout his training, Mr Alam undertook clinical and biomechanical research and has published widely and presented internationally. Topics include:
• Knee Ligament (ACL and multi-ligament) Injury Diagnosis, Monitoring & Outcomes

• Patellar Instability and MPFL Reconstruction
• Patellar Tendinopathy or Tendinitis (“Jumper’s Knee”)
• Blood Clots (VTE or DVT/PE) following Total Knee and Hip Replacement

Mr Alam is a reviewer for the Bone & Joint Journal and the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
