Please join us in (belatedly) welcoming Dr. Amir Khoshbin back to Toronto! He is very excited to be rejoining the St. Michael’s Hospital and University of Toronto family. He has returned at a rank of Surgeon-Investigator in the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and Assistant Professor. He attended the University of Toronto for his undergraduate and medical education and completed his residency with top honours, as part of the Surgeon Scientist Program and received his Master of Science in clinical epidemiology. After residency, he completed an Orthopedic Trauma Association fellowship in Trauma at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston. Thereafter, he completed a second fellowship in Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.
Dr. Khoshbin specializes in adult reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee, including primary and revision joint replacements and complex lower extremity trauma. His predominant long-term research interests are to utilize both institutional and provincially-held registries; focusing on ‘health outcomes research’ with a specific aim of optimizing and modifying the delivery of total joint arthroplasty (TJA) and common musculoskeletal (MSK) trauma procedures. This will encompass investigating predictors of poor patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) and complications following TJA and common MSK trauma procedures. Furthermore, due to his unique training, St. Michael’s will become the first University of Toronto-affiliated hospital providing Direct Anterior Hip Arthroplasty on a specialized table called the Hana Table. Dr. Khoshbin’s research will involve studying the PROM and surgical outcomes of this new, minimally-invasive technique.
