Clinical Summary

Khalid Azzam, MD, is an assistant professor and orthopedic surgeon with expertise in hip and knee replacement as well as surgical fixation of bone fractures. While working in a hip and knee replacement research laboratory, Dr. Azzam developed a special interest in the field of adult reconstruction and research measuring the success of these procedures. He wrote book chapters and published more than a dozen peer-reviewed articles during his time there, and later went on to complete orthopedic residency training at the University of Nebraska.
