His main specialties include arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery for conditions such as frozen shoulder, tendonitis, arthritis, biceps injury, recurrent dislocations, rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, stiff elbow, and wrist problems. He also performs all types of upper limb replacement surgery. Professor Imam is committed to delivering top-quality, patient-centred care based on the best available evidence, whether through surgical or non-surgical treatment.

In addition to his clinical work, Professor Imam is a passionate educator and serves as a professor at the University of East London. He is actively involved in numerous national and international research projects and has published over 70 articles in leading medical journals worldwide. He has also authored two books and multiple textbook chapters focused on upper limb injuries. His current research interest lies in the implementation of artificial intelligence in surgery.
