Mr Amir Qureshi is an internationally-trained consultant knee surgeon and limb reconstruction specialist in the Southampton area.

Other interests include - but are not limited to; osteotomy, limb deformities, problem fractures as well as bone infection, joint preservation and autologous chondrocyte implantation.
Mr Qureshi's orthopaedic training started after he graduated from University of Wales College of Medicine. He received the Lloyd Griffiths Medal award for trainee with greatest input towards the programme while at the renowned Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital. Throughout all of his training years, he worked under the guidance of highly-experienced leaders in their fields.
After finishing his higher surgical training, Mr Qureshi decided to further his expertise by doing two international fellowships. The first was hip and knee surgery at the Australian Orthopaedic Association, while he was simultaneously an honorary lecturer at the University of Adelaide. The second was limb reconstruction at The Russian Ilizarov Scientific Centre for Restorative Traumatology, where Mr Qureshi learned highly-advanced techniques and procedures.
Currently, Mr Qureshi is teaching and conducting research outside of his clinic hours. He is an honorary senior clinical lecturer at University Hospital Southampton (UHS), where he is also the postgraduate education lead for orthopaedics. Previously he was the department clinical lead for medical students. Mr Qureshi attends international scientific meetings and gives invited lectures. He is a keen teacher who has been awarded the Wessex Trainer of the Year award in consecutive years, and received the Hospital Heroes badge from UHS.
Mr Qureshi has had multiple articles published in the national press, as well as many published in peer-reviewed journals. His present research, where he is principle investigator and has fully-funded the project's interests, includes the use of cartilage regenerative cells in the ABICUS trial and novel electromagnetically driven osteotomy surgery in the Ellipse HTO trial.
