Dr. Nawabi completed his medical training at Oxford University in England and residency in orthopedic surgery on the prestigious Percivall Pott Rotation in London, training at the Royal National Orthopaedic and the Royal London Hospitals. He was awarded the Sir Walter Mercer Gold Medal as the top graduating resident in the UK and served as the British Orthopaedic Association Young Ambassador in 2010.

Wilson Award for Excellence in Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Nawabi has special expertise in ACL reconstruction, sports knee and shoulder injuries, hip arthroscopy and robotic-assisted joint replacement in young and active patients. His expertise in sports knee and shoulder surgery was developed in London after completing a dedicated one year fellowship under the supervision of the internationally renowned sports surgeon, Dr. Andy Williams. During this fellowship he gained experience treating elite soccer athletes from Chelsea Football Club and other English Premier League clubs. He has served as an assistant team physician to the New York Red Bulls MLS franchise. Dr. Nawabi’s expertise in hip surgery was developed at HSS during a one year fellowship under the supervision of Dr. Bryan Kelly, who trained him to perform hip arthroscopy. During this year, Dr. Nawabi also spent time with Dr. Michael Leunig in Switzerland and Dr. Stefan Kreuzer in Texas gaining advanced training in performing computer-navigated direct anterior hip replacement. He has also been trained to perform hip resurfacing by his mentors in the UK and Dr. Edwin Su at HSS. A strong research background in knee, hip, and shoulder surgery, Dr. Nawabi has authored over fifty peer-reviewed publications and delivered over 100 presentations at national and international conferences. He has been recognized with multiple awards by HSS and international societies for his academic accomplishments. Dr. Nawabi believes in offering compassionate care and state-of-the-art solutions to his patients with sports injuries and arthritic conditions of the knee, shoulder, and hip joints.
