Originally from Iran, Dr. Anahita Aslani attended Tehran Medical University, the highest ranked Medical school in the country and graduated with an MD degree. Dr. Aslani has had a passion for surgery since childhood.

Thereafter, as a surgeon, Dr. Aslani accepted a position at a teaching hospital, providing medical education. During this time, Anahita felt that something was missing and her desire to learn, operate and accomplish creative surgeries, needed to be fulfilled. With her end-goal in mind, Dr. Aslani began a fellowship with Dr. Gousheh, an outstanding professor of plastic, reconstructive and micro-surgery. Dr. Gousheh encouraged her to continue her journey in this field, and travel to France to learn the latest plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques and approaches.

Dr. Aslani was presented with tantalizing propositions from European countries to hang-her-hat and join their surgical teams; however, her heart guided her to return to her home country. Once returning home, Dr. Aslani dove in, helping patients and sharing her knowledge and experience with other health professionals. She started her own practice, as well as continued working with professor Dr. Gousheh, engaging in sophisticated surgical procedures.
