About me

Abtin is a Consultant Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon with an NHS practice based at the world renowened Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford. He is also Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Oxford.
Abtin has particular expertise in:

- Revision (re-do) knee replacement surgery
- Management of infected knee replacements (Per-periprosthetic joint infection)
- Arthroscopic (keyhole) knee surgery
- Management of knee cartilage defects with stem cell implantation

Abtin graduated from University of London and completed his higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedics on the Oxford programme. He completed a PhD (DPhil) at the University of Oxford. His thesis focused on improving training methods for unicompartmental knee replacement surgery. He was appointed as NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer at the University of Oxford in 2015, and Honourary Senior Clinical Lecturer in 2017. He undertook two post-CCT sub-specialist clinical fellowships focusing on complex hip and knee surgery in Oxford and Stanmore (Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital). He was a European Bone & Joint Infection Society (EBJIS) Travelling Fellow in 2017 and also completed a Fellowship focusing on peri-prosthetic joint infection at the Rothman Institute (Philadelphia, USA) with Prof. J Parvizi.

Abtin has a strong academic background with numerous peer-reviewed scientific publications as well as national/international presentations. He is a regular invited guest lecturer at these meetings. Abtin was invited faculty and member of the International Consensus Group for the management of peri-prosthetic joint infection and has recently been invited to join the UK Revision Knee Surgery and Peri-prosthtic Joint Infection Working Groups with the aim of improving care delivery in these domains. His research focuses on:
