Background Information 
Professional profile:

Dr.Khan works as a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. The main focus of his practice is treating patients with joint and back problems, using MRI, CT, Ultrasound and Xrays for diagnosing the cause of their symptoms or treating them with appropriate intervention. He also maintains his general radiology skills particularly with respect to cross-sectional whole body CT imaging and plain xray reporting.

Dr.Khan started his radiology training in Glasgow, accumulating general radiology skills before deciding quite early in his training to pursue a career in Musculoskeletal Imaging. His desire to excel in his chosen specialty led him to Kings College Hospital, London, as a subspecialty Musculoskeleletal Imaging trainee for a year, at the end of which he received his certification of completion of his radiology training. He was then selected for two competitive back-to-back fellowships. The first was based at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, which is the largest soft tissue and bone tumour centre in UK as well as being United Kingdom’s leading specialist orthopaedic hospital. The second fellowship was based at McGill University Hospitals in Montreal, which is one of the largest healthcare providers in Canada.

 His philosophy is to provide the best personal care for patients by working closely with the patients and their physicians. 

Personal profile:

After travelling from Thornaby to Airdrie to Glasgow to London (living in both the south and north ends of the city) to Montreal, Dr. Khan is now settled in Leicester with his family which remains his priority and he spends as much time as he can with them when not working. His family includes his amazing, supportive wife and two young, highly active, extremely energetic, boys!
Besides family, his other passion is sports. He does as much physical activity as he can fit in his time, which includes playing football, and squash, running 5 kilometers on a fairly regular basis (23 minutes and 41 seconds is his best time), doing gym exercises at home and he has recently started cycling - and crashing - too! His goal is to stay fit and inspire his kids to stay active as well.
