Dr. Nicholas Abidi is fortunate to be able to combine his passion for helping others with his ability to fix his patients’ conditions with his hands. Using a variety of orthopaedic techniques, both non-surgical and surgical, he provides individualized care for hip, knee, foot and ankle conditions and sports injuries. He is happiest when his patients leave his care with improved function and return to their active lifestyles.
As an orthopaedic surgeon and total joint replacement specialist, he has successfully performed many complex foot and ankle procedures since 1997. He performs minimally invasive anterior approach hip replacements, partial and total knee replacements, and total ankle replacements for those in need. In addition to total joint replacement, he has helped to pioneer many orthobiological joint arthroscopic procedures in the knee and ankle including cartilage restoration and subchondroplasty.
Dr. Abidi spends a large part of his time volunteering with regional and national medical and civic organizations. He participates in the peer-review process of medical journal publications and quality improvement. He is nationally engaged in Patient Reported Outcome studies in orthopaedics while leading the OrthoNorCal orthopaedic team to national recognition.
When he's not seeing patients at OrthoNorCal, Dr. Abidi enjoys attending his children’s athletic events, training his dogs, skiing, boating and traveling. Photography, computers, and learning new technologies are some of his other interests.
