Nisrina Widari


DPhil student

  • Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) student in Musculoskeletal Sciences
  • Member of Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre (OOEC)

A medical doctor striving to optimize orthopaedic care in limited clinical settings through research and innovation.

Widari is working under the supervision of Professor David Murray and Associate Professor Stephen Mellon, as part of the Oxford Orthopaedics Engineering Centre since 2022.

Widari's work focuses on the Oxford Partial Knee Replacement, the mostly widely used unicompartmental knee replacement in the world. Widari's research aims to evaluate the outcomes of the Oxford Knee and analyze its most poorly understood complication: tibial component subsidence. Through a combination of clinical study and biomechanical experiments, she is particularly interested to determine the incidence, risk factors, and clinical outcomes, and mechanisms of tibial component subsidence. It is hoped these should lead not only to an understanding of subsidence, but also strategies to prevent it.

Prior to joining NDORMS, Widari graduated from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia, with Cum Laude in Medicine. Through internships and clinical work in different areas in and outside of Indonesia, she has experienced an extreme disparity in clinical settings. It has been her inspiration ever since to narrow the gap by conducting innovative research and modifying its application to work with limited resources.
