Surgery means to me…

Surgery means to me           that I am always available for you and take your problems seriously
Surgery means to me           that I do not operate immediately or insist on surgery, except in emergencies
Surgery means to me           that I consider all your medical results and create a treatment strategy
Surgery means to me           that I seek and find alternatives to surgery when it is feasible
Surgery means to me           that I give you all the information you want and act as your partner
Surgery means to me           that I am there for you while you resume normal daily life
Surgery means to me           absolute trust between me as your doctor and you as my patient
Surgery means to me           transparency in my relationship to you

I was born in Iran. After high school I studied physics in Turkey at the Middle East Technical University of Ankara.

Medicine has a long tradition in my family. My grandfather played a great role in my medical carrier. He was a highly regarded surgeon in Tehran and he served as head of famous hospitals. As a child he told me about his surgical achievements and gave me the feeling to me that it is great to help people.

I enrolled in medical school in 1986 in Pecs, Hungary, and I graduated cum laude in September, 1993. The Medical University of Pecs” is one of Europe’s oldest medical universities and it offers excellent medical training. I began my surgical carrier at the Second Surgical Clinic in Pecs.

In 1994, I continued as a resident in surgery at the University Surgical Clinic in Graz, Austria. That was a very intensive, constructive and productive time for me. Taking rotations in surgery in many other countries helped me to develop and to expand my medical knowledge and surgical skills (Hamburg, Great Britain,…)
As I have lived and worked in so many countries, I have had the opportunity to learn a number of languages: Persian, English, Turkish, Hungarian and German.

Thanks to these language skills, I am able to communicate with people of different nationalities, and so better help them. This plays a very important role in my work as a consultant general surgeon at the Barmherzige Brüder Spital (Hospital of the Brothers of Charity) in Vienna, Austria where I have been working since October 2006 with great enthusiasm.

In order to provide more intensive, individual and personal treatment and support to my patients I have been granted an additional private office at the Rudolfinerhaus, Vienna’s finest private hospital.



The caravan of life shall always pass
Beware that is fresh as sweet young grass
Let’s not worry about what tomorrow will amass
Fill my cup again, this night will pass, alas.

Omar Khayyam (11-12. Century)
