    About

    Mr Mohamed A. Imam MD, MSc, D. SportMed, PhD, FRCS (Tr and Orth) is an Orthopaedic fellowship-trained surgeon with a particular interest in Upper limb surgery, sports injuries and complex trauma. He was awarded multiple distinctive international awards and travelling fellowships from the NHS Academy, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine (ISAKOS), European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EFORT), International Trauma Foundation (AO) and others. He had a fellowship in orthopaedic and trauma surgery presented to him by The Royal College of Surgeons of England. He has completed two Degree level theses including a PhD on the healing of rotator cuff tendons tears and shoulder biomechanics and successfully filed patents.

    Following the completion of specialist training, He undertook international and national upper limb fellowships at distinguished centres of excellence. These included embarking on specialist upper limb fellowships training at three internationally recognised units within the UK: the Wrightington Upper Limb Unit, the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and the renowned Rowley Bristow Orthopaedic Unit, Chertsey, Surrey where he currently works as a substantive consultant. He also undertook a complex trauma fellowship in Oxford University Hospitals, a Major trauma centre in Oxford.

    Moreover, he undertook international fellowships including a fellowship with Professor Christian Gerber; the world-leading pioneer of modern shoulder surgery, at Der Balgrist University Orthopaedic Centre of excellence in Zurich, Switzerland, and a complex trauma fellowship in the BGU Trauma centre in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Additionally, he undertook travelling fellowships to gain an up-to-date international experience in Mayo Clinic, The Steadman clinic (US Olympic team centre of excellence) and Stanford University. He also undertook multiple travelling fellowships in Europe; these include Madrid, Munich and Heidelberg.

    Mr Imam performs major shoulder tendon repair, reconstruction, tendon transfers, joint preservation, joint replacement, cartilage regeneration, and tendon degeneration and tears. He undertakes modern Joint replacement surgery of the upper limb in patients with advanced arthritis where joint preservation is impossible. He offers total and partial replacement of the joints, including computer navigation and bespoke shape-matched surgery. He operates, using evidence-based practice, on different pathologies in the upper limb. He developed various techniques and modified others that he learned from different pioneers during his fellowships. His practice's ethos is to provide high quality, patient-centred care while tailoring the treatment to each patient, based on the best available evidence, which may include surgical or non-operative treatment. He is competent in all aspects of upper limb surgery.

    Mr M Imam is heavily involved in research, having published over 70 peer-reviewed publications in top international medical journals and written more than 12 textbook chapters on upper limb injuries. He is the chief investigator of many clinical trials, including national and international projects. He has authored two books, one on the uses of stem cells in orthopaedics and another reference atlas in shoulder arthroscopy. He regularly presents his research at various national and international meetings. His current research interests include novel materials, the use of stem cells for cartilage and tendon repair, bone marrow concentrate, platelet-rich plasma, ligament and cartilage regeneration-optimising ng outcomes after total joint replacements, minimally invasive fracture fixation devices, arthroscopy outcomes, bone healing and techniques to aid rapid return to sport after injury. He has designed orthopaedic instruments, designed and has published more than ten novel surgical procedures.

    Mr Imam uses the latest technology in diagnosing different upper limb pathologies; he is currently researching, with an elite team of researchers, using Artificial and Machine intelligence in surgery. He specialises in arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery to treat many conditions such as rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, recurrent dislocations, biceps injury, tennis elbow, stiff elbow, wrist problems and arthritis. Besides, he undertakes all kinds of upper limb replacement surgery. He has published seminal papers in most of these pathologies cited by other academics hundreds of times. In trauma surgery, he utilises an evidence-based approach to achieve the best outcomes for his patients. Mr Imam believes and promotes evidence-based and multi-disciplinary approach towards the management of his patients. He works very closely with a dedicated specialist team of Radiologists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Hand Therapists, and Anaesthetists specialised in Regional Nerve Blocks.
