Professor Arash Momeni, MD
Palo Alto, USA
Dr. Momeni’s clinical interests include complex reconstruction after cancer and trauma with the goal of helping patients get back to normal both from a functional and aesthetic standpoint. His clinical practice focuses on complex reconstructive surgery of the breast, head and neck, trunk, and extremities. He uses state-of-the-art surgical techniques, including perforator flaps. In addition to offering all reconstructive modalities following mastectomy, Dr. Momeni has developed cutting edge surgical approaches to post-mastectomy reconstruction such as hybrid breast reconstruction (i.e. the combination of free flap transfer and implant placement) and techniques of flap neurotization with the goal to improve sensory recovery to the reconstructed breast.
Dr. Momeni is recognized nationally and internationally for his research in clinical outcomes after microsurgical reconstruction and Evidence-based medicine (EBM). He has authored over 170 peer-reviewed publications and numerous chapters in major plastic surgery textbooks. Due to his scientific contributions he was appointed the Ryan-Upon Scholar in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Stanford University. He speaks regularly at national and international meetings and is an ad hoc reviewer for numerous scientific journals, including Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (JPRAS), Journal of Reconstructive Microsurgery, and Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Additionally, he is the Associate Editor of Annals of Plastic Surgery and serves on the Editorial Board of leading plastic surgery journals, including Microsurgery and European Journal of Plastic Surgery.
