    About

    Prof. Tahir Khan is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon currently working at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore in the Young Adult Hip Unit.

    He was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Central Manchester University Hospitals in October 2002, where he established a high quality lower limb and children's orthopaedic surgery practice before relocating to Stanmore in May 2013. He trained in the north-west of England (Sheffield, Birmingham and Manchester) and undertook specialist fellowship training in the USA, Toronto, Canada, and Mainz, Germany. He was also awarded the prestigious American - British - Canadian (ABC) fellowship in 2004 by the British Orthopaedic Association.

    Prof. Khan’s experience and interests include children’s orthopaedics, hip and knee surgery (hip and knee arthroscopy, realignment osteotomies, primary total hip replacement) and in particular hip pain in children, adolescents and young adults. He is particularly interested in hip preservation surgery and offers arthroscopic hip surgery and osteotomies around the hip joint.

    He has always enjoyed the interaction with patients and takes time to discuss all treatment options, looking at alternatives and explaining problems affecting you or your child.

    Prof. Khan is passionate about research. His research interests include arthroscopic hip surgery in children and adults, joint replacement in young adults, gait analysis in children and cerebral palsy. He is a member of faculty in regional, national and international conferences /courses in areas of his interest.
