Dr. Armin Arshi is currently assistant professor and attending orthopedic surgeon at NYU Langone Health. His expertise is in adult hip and knee reconstruction where he specializes in minimally invasive joint replacement, robotic-assisted surgery, and complex reconstruction for failed prior joint replacement. Dr. Arshi’s research interests include implant design in hip and knee replacement, robotic-assisted surgery, patient outcomes in joint replacement, and return to sports and physical activities after joint replacement. He is also actively involved in the training of residents, fellows, and medical students at NYU.

Dr. Arshi is a proud alumnus of the UCLA bioengineering undergraduate program from 2012, where he was awarded the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Outstanding Bachelor of Science Award and the Edward K. Rice Undergraduate Engineering Achievement Award at graduation. During his time at UCLA, he was winner of the department’s undergraduate senior capstone design course and the inaugural NIH-NIBIB DEBUT nationwide competition for his team’s work on microfluidic device design for automated rare cell isolation and quantification.

Dr. Arshi received his MD degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA as a recipient of the Leaders of Tomorrow scholarship. He graduated with Alpha Omega Alpha (ΑΩΑ) honors and was awarded the Stafford L. Warren Medal for most outstanding graduating medical student in his class. Dr. Arshi then completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at UCLA Medical Center and Santa Monica UCLA Orthopedic Hospital and was elected by his peers and faculty as administrative Chief Resident. After completing residency, Dr. Arshi completed a clinical fellowship in adult hip and knee reconstruction at the prestigious Rothman Orthopedic Institute in Philadelphia.

In training and in practice, Dr. Arshi has conducted research and published extensively on tissue engineering and biomechanics for orthopaedic applications in collaborations with surgeons and engineers in academia and industry alike. He is proud to serve on the UCLA Bioengineering Alumni Advisory Board and hopes to continue the department’s legacy of excellence for future generations of UCLA bioengineers.
