Mr Tahir Khan
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB, FRCS, FRCS (Tr & Orth), MPhil Orth
I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon and specialist consultant in young children and adults.
My experience and interests include children's orthopaedics, hip and knee surgery (hip and knee arthroscopy, realignment osteotomies, primary total hip and knee replacement) and in particular hip pain in children, adolescents and young adults. I am particularly interested in hip preservation surgery and offer hip arthroscopic surgery and osteotomies around the hip joint.
I am currently working at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore in the Young Adult Hip Unit and Children's Orthopaedics department. I was appointed as a Consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Central Manchester University Hospitals in October 2002, where I established a high-quality lower limb and children's orthopaedic surgery practice before moving to Stanmore in May 2013.
I trained in the north west of England (Sheffield, Birmingham and Manchester) and undertook specialist fellowship training in the USA, Toronto, Canada, and Mainz, Germany.
Spire Harpenden Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
