Azmi Rahman read Medical Sciences with Bioengineering at Imperial, from which he graduated on the Dean’s List. His doctoral work explored the assessment and improvement of the Cementless Oxford Unicompartmental Knee Replacement under the supervision of Professor David W Murray and Associate Professor Stephen Mellon, which was accepted with no corrections.
Azmi primarily works on optimising the design of the Oxford Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (OUKR), the world’s most widely used partial knee replacement. It has a mobile bearing, and is implanted using a minimally invasive approach. Azmi is particularly interested in the interaction of the implant with its surrounding bone, studying in-vivo effects from clinical and imaging data and multimodal mechanical assessment of design modifications, to improve outcomes. His work introduces changes to the implant which is in regular clinical use.
In Oxford, Azmi tutors preclinical medical students at Oriel in anatomy and physiology, and has additional teaching responsibilities at the Dunn School of Pathology.
Azmi has a half-blue in gliding and is an avid glider pilot, flying regularly with the Oxford University Gliding Club at RAF Weston-on-the-Green.
Azmi is interested in orthopaedics and clinical engineering research, and is a member of the Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre at NDORMS.
Anyone interested in teaching or research work (in or out of Oxford), is welcome to contact him.
