Orthopedic Surgeon Joins OU Physicians

Wednesday, September 23, 2015 - Campus News -

Amgad M. Haleem, M.D., a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, has established his practice with OU Physicians. 

Haleem specializes in foot and ankle surgery and has a specific interest in adult foot and ankle deformity, complex lower extremity deformity correction and joint preservation. 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.

Haleem completed two fellowships in foot and ankle surgery as well as lower limb complex reconstruction at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, a fellowship in orthopedic adult reconstructive surgery at Houston Methodist Hospital and a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at the University of South Florida in Tampa. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Cairo University School of Medicine in Egypt, where he also earned his medical degree with honors.  

In 2008, Haleem was awarded a grant for Excellence in Scientific Achievement, allowing him to complete his Ph.D. thesis in stem cell-based cartilage regeneration at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, through the U.S.A./Egyptian Joint Channel System.

Throughout his fellowship training, Haleem provided care for foot/ankle and lower extremity sports injuries in elite professional dancers and athletes including dancers of the New York City Ballet, professional NBA basketball players, NFL football players and collegiate athletes at the University of South Florida.

Haleem sees patients at the OU Physicians building, 825 N.E 10th Street, Oklahoma City. For an appointment with an OU Physicians orthopedic surgeon, call (405) 271-2663.

With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
