About

Bio

Dr. Khorsandi is a Board Certified Diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery with practices serving both Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. He has trained in the most advanced techniques of Plastic Surgery, Minimally Invasive Hand Surgery and the emerging new field of Migraine Relief Surgery. He is a two-time recipient of the national “Patient’s Choice Award” for his skills and a recent recipient of the national “Compassionate Doctor Award” for his healing compassion. Dr. Khorsandi has always set his sights high. He was admitted to the combined B.S./M.D. programs at Villanova University and later matriculated to Temple University School of Medicine where he took an early interest in plastic surgery. He started a student chapter of Operation Smile, performed numerous elective rotations in plastic surgery and was a research assistant to the Chairman of Plastic Surgery at the University. Following medical school he then trained at what is considered to be one of most rigorous and competitive general surgery programs in the world – the University of Pennsylvania General Surgery program. During this time he studied at Pennsylvania Hospital, the country’s very first hospital originally founded by Benjamin Franklin, and joined the ranks of medical luminaries such as C. Everett Koop, Thomas Bond, and William Physick who trained there. Additionally the program took him to Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), two institutions that are consistently ranked as the nations best hospitals by US News and World Reports. Working in these hospitals undoubtedly provided him with strong surgical fundamentals. Dr. Khorsandi’s surgical talents, and academic achievements led him to be accepted into the Plastic and Reconstructive Training Program at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston. Dr. Khorsandi spent two years refining his skills in Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery, and became the program’s Chief Resident. He co-authored a text chapter on wound healing and continued working on several research projects in the field of plastic surgery. Looking to reach a new level of skill he then went on to an Advanced Aesthetic Fellowship in Beverly Hills, where he learned how to perform some of the most challenging types of surgery – revision plastic surgery. From there he trained in minimally invasive hand surgery in Houston Texas and most recently Dr. Khorsandi has trained and worked in the emerging field of Migraine Surgery. Over the past few years Dr. Khorsandi has been preforming a wide variety of cases including hand surgery, rhinoplasty, cosmetic breast augmentation, revision plastic surgery and reconstructive plastic surgery. His patients have come from across the country, seeking his wide ranging skill and his compassionate care.
