About Amgad Haleem

Amgad M. Haleem A. Amin, MD, PhD, is a fellowship-trained Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in Foot and Ankle Surgery. Dr. Haleem also takes special interest in complex lower extremity deformity correction, joint preservation and reconstruction. His current research is focused on cartilage-preserving procedures of major weight-bearing joints of the lower extremities (ankles, knees, and hips), with particular emphasis on the use of biologics such as stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Dr. Haleem’s research also involves 3D Printing and Bioprinting for orthopedic applications with the OU Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering Group where he has multiple collaborations with biomedical engineers in OU and other regional and national medical centers. He also leads the OU Lower Limb Joint Preservation Program with various cartilage transplant procedures.

Dr. Haleem earned his Medical Degree (with Honors) from Cairo University School of Medicine in Cairo, Egypt, the same institution through which he completed his Orthopedic Surgery Residency. In 2008, Dr. Haleem was awarded a grant for Excellence in Scientific Achievement, allowing him to complete his PhD in stem cell-based cartilage regeneration at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

After successfully defending his PhD thesis entitled "The Use of Human Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells in the Treatment of Articular Cartilage Defects of the Knee," Dr. Haleem continued his specialized education and training with a fellowship in Foot and Ankle Surgery and another fellowship in Lower Limb Complex Reconstruction at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), Weill Medical College Cornell University, New York, NY; a fellowship in Orthopedic Adult Reconstructive Surgery at Houston Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX; and a fellowship in Orthopedic Sports Medicine at the University of South Florida and Florida Orthopedic Institute in Tampa, FL.
