Mr Anish Amin

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

MBChB, FRCS (Tr&Orth), PhD


Specialises in

My private practice is dedicated to the treatment of knee, ankle and foot problems and mirrors a busy NHS practice based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

I have a special interest in joint preservation surgery of the knee. Joint preservation surgery is aimed at avoiding or delaying the need for joint replacement. It involves procedures such as knee arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), cartilage repair procedures or knee osteotomy (joint realignment surgery).

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1999. I trained in Edinburgh and Melbourne, completing specialist fellowships in knee surgery, foot and ankle surgery and joint replacement. I am also a consultant member of the internationally renowned Orthopaedic Trauma Unit at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

I was awarded a PhD by the University of Edinburgh in 2011 for my work on articular cartilage. I was appointed as a National Research Scotland (NRS) Clinician by the Chief Scientist’s Office (CSO, Scotland) in 2015 to lead research into developing new treatments for osteoarthritis and cartilage injuries. I have published widely and continue to contribute regularly to the medical literature, national/international courses and conferences. I am an educational and clinical supervisor for the South East Scotland orthopaedic surgical training programme. I am an examiner for the Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examinations (JCIE) on behalf of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer with the University of Edinburgh.
