Personal Profile

Farhan is an orthopaedic surgeon with a specialist interest in hip and knee reconstruction and complex trauma. His NHS practice at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire involves managing both patients with high energy life changing injuries and patients with established hip and knee arthritis.

Farhan qualified in 2007 in Hyderabad, India, and continued his post-graduate training in orthopaedic surgery in the same city. Seeking career advancement, he relocated to the UK in 2012. In 2017, he obtained his FRCS(Tr & Orth) and then pursued further specialist fellowship training in trauma (at UHCW – major trauma centre) and high volume lower limb joint replacement surgery (hip and knee) at Warwick Hospital.

Farhan has a strong background in research, with involvement in audits and large multicentre randomised control trials. He has presented his research findings at conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals.

Farhan enjoys teaching and is an educational/clinical supervisor for trainees at different career stages. A testament to his high-quality teaching was being voted “Trainer of the Year” by Warwick trainees in 2022. Additionally, he organises educational meetings to enhance postgraduate doctors’ training and is involved in teaching of phase 3 students at Warwick Medical School. His local service improvement projects encompass setting up a virtual fracture clinic service, and optimising patient pathways in arthroplasty during his fellowship at Warwick Hospital.

Being dual fellowship-trained, Farhan’s interests include hip and knee replacement surgery and trauma-related procedures. He is skilled in joint replacement surgery, fracture non-union procedures, and managing sequelae following fractures involving different limbs.

In his leisure time, Farhan enjoys spending time with family and participating in recreational sports like cricket, badminton, and squash.
