Mr Nezar Tumia had his high specialist orthopaedic training in Aberdeen after finishing a degree of MD (Doctorate of Medicine) in a research on knee cartilage engineering. He travelled to Toronto to work in one of the most prestigious and highly specialised orthopaedic centre for a fellowship. He carried out a large number of knee and hip arthroplasty achieving high patient satisfaction and had complication rate well below the national average with a reported infection rate of 0%. He published and presented his research work internationally and won best paper award in Germany in 2009.
