Dr Sufian S. Ahmad is an award-winning scholar and clinician with a special interest in complex knee surgery and hip preservation surgery.
After having spent his initial postgraduate period in basic research, he developed a particular interest in regenerative joint research and tissue engineering. Alongside his clinical practice, he realised the significance of the need for translation of high-level ideas into clinical practise. This became the basis for the establishment of the knee & hip surgical research programme in Tübingen. The programme focuses on translational research and clinical trials.
His portfolio includes several successful examples of translation that have been brought to success with international collaborations and have occupied a spotlight position in the academic surgical community. Dr Ahmad was granted many awards including the Jon Karlsson award for outstanding clinical research in 2018.
He has no industry connection nor conflict of interest to disclose.
