Mr Amer Khan

Mr Amer Khan was educated at Kings College London where he gained a 1st class honours in Physiology and Exercise Medicine before qualifying in 1994. He undertook higher surgical training in orthopaedics in South West England before completing subspecialist fellowship training in complex shoulder surgery at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital and in complex knee surgery at Guys & St Thomas’ Hospital.

He was awarded the prestigious British Orthopaedic Association European Travelling Fellowship gaining further subspecialist training working with pioneers in arthroscopic and sports knee, shoulder and hip surgery in Ghent, Lyon, Annecy, Nice and Toulouse before embarking on further fellowships in the USA and other European Centres of Excellence.

Mr Khan was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in sports knee, shoulder and hip injuries in 2010 at the Homerton University Hospital, where he also took up the roles of Clinical Lead for the Department of Trauma & Orthopaedics and Joint Clinical Lead for Sports & Exercise Medicine. Mr Khan left the NHS in 2018.

Mr Khan was a member of the knee team at the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. He treated a number of athletes and performed their surgery at the Homerton University Hospital.
