I am an academic endocrine surgeon who earned undergraduate, medical and Master's degrees from Cambridge University; Basic Surgical Training, Higher Specialist Training, General & Emergency Surgery Fellowship training and a Doctorate degree in Biomedical & Clinical Sciences from Oxford University; and Endocrine Surgery Fellowship and postdoctoral training from Yale University. My expertise includes management of benign and malignant endocrine disease, complex cases including reoperative surgeries, conventional open and minimally invasive procedures such as surgery under local anesthesia for neck procedures and posterior retroperitoneoscopic approach for adrenal disease.

"At each stage of my education and training, I was instructed, inspired, challenged and guided by preeminent clinicians and scientists who consistently held those under their tutelage to the highest of standards and expectations. Their models established for me the examples and standards by which I now attempt to serve, teach, mentor and counsel. My commitment to an ongoing process of learning, striving for excellence and helping others advance is also motivated by the knowledge that those of my faith in my home country of Iran are forbidden from pursuing higher education.
