Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Izaddoost has ever received is “Happiness is not getting what you want, but knowing when you have enough.”

Not everyone knows this about Dr. Izaddoost, but he used to weigh 310 pounds, lost weight, and completed a full Iron Man triathlon in 2018.

As a child, he dreamed of becoming a fireman.

​I employ a patient-centric approach to patient care. First and foremost, I strive to educate patients on surgical options and believe in a joint decision process to achieve their desired outcomes. I carry out this approach through all phases of surgical care: pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative care.
