    Dr. Diab was born in Cairo, Egypt, and raised in the United Kingdom. He came to the United States in 1979 to attend Stanford University, where he majored in Classics as an undergraduate and where he stayed for Medical School. His post-graduate training has taken him to the University of Washington (General Orthopaedics) and Harvard University (Paediatric Orthopaedics).

    Dr. Diab's practice encompasses all musculoskeletal conditions in children, including spine deformity, hip dysplasia, fractures, osteotomy and other complex reconstructive techniques. He is nationally and internationally recognized in the field of paediatric orthopaedics, having published and spoken extensively on a wide variety of topics, and being the editor of the standard text-book "Practice of Paediatric Orthopaedics". He also has an interest in the history of medicine, which has found expression in his book on medical language titled "Lexicon of Orthopaedic Etymology".

    Dr. Diab is deeply committed to the education of medical students and post-graduate trainees. He has held the endowed Chair in Medical Education for the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and is a member of the Academy of Medical Educators at UCSF. He has been Mentor in the Miller-Diab College at UCSF. Dr. Diab is Director of the Surgical Subspecialities required elective that all medical students take at UCSF. Dr. Diab holds the Chair in Paediatric Orthopaedic Education at UCSF.
