Dr. Khaled Almansoori
Dr. Khaled Almansoori is an orthopaedic adult and pediatric spine and trauma surgeon who has had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout his academic and professional career. His interest and passion for orthopedics began during his teenage years when he was diagnosed with a bone tumor and had to undergo a surgical excision and allograft reconstruction procedure.
Upon graduating from high school in Brazil, he began his pursuit of becoming an orthopaedic surgeon by first completing a Bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and molecular biology at Boston University. He then attended medical school at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland where he graduated with honors in 2006 and began his specialization training in orthopaedic surgery.
He then travelled to Canada where he completed his general orthopedic residency training at the University of Alberta and obtained a Master’s degree in Health Science Education. His dedication to orthopedic surgery and education was well-recognized and this earned him several academic and research awards, including the Hasting-Mewburn Award for outstanding merit in the field of orthopaedic medicine and the ROTA award for exemplary teaching and education.
He then further sub-specialized in the area of spine and trauma orthopaedics by completing a Skeletal Trauma Fellowship at McMaster University, a Pediatric Fellowship at the Children’s National Medical Center from George Washington University, and a Combined Spine Fellowship from the University of Calgary.
In addition to his surgical training, Dr. Almansoori has had the privilege of working as a medical volunteer in several developing countries in South America, the Middle East, and Africa.
Almost annually he continues to contribute several weeks of his time to working with different non-governmental organizations including the Canadian Association of Medical Teams Abroad (CAMTA), I.C.Change, the United Nations Refugee Works Agency (UNRWA), and the Society for Physicians for Social Responsibilities (SPSR).
He holds a strong passion for surgical education resulting in numerous academic research publications and presentations. He is an ATLS®, AMTLS, and surgical course instructor, as well as the Director of Educational Development at the annual Canadian Orthopedic Association’s Basic Science Course. Outside of his medical and academic practice, he spends most of his free time with his wife and four children.
