He is praised for moving toward state-of-the-art procedures to ensure optimal recovery for his patients.

Because of this, he is credited with being one the first General Surgeons to introduce and regularly perform surgeries with the daVinci Robotic Surgical System in Southern California. He was the first to introduce General Surgery on the daVinci Platform at St. Bernardine Medical Center and Redlands Community Hospital.

Dr. Lalezarzadeh’s dedication to his patients goes beyond his mastery of surgical operations. He has been comprehensively trained and has extensive experience in the field of Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Because of his breadth of knowledge in advanced wound care, he has advised other surgeons on the different methods for treating problematic wounds.

Yet, advice is not the only reason why other doctors and surgeons seek him out. He is humbled that he is considered a doctor’s doctor amongst many in the field. He has a proven track record of distinction in the surgical field, and because of this, he is the surgeon recommended to other surgeons, doctors, and medical professionals. As a husband and father of two children, he is honored to be the preferred surgeon for the parents, spouses, and children of his peers as well.

Training and Workshops

Throughout his tenure as a General Surgeon, Dr. Lalezarzadeh has always strived to gain new insight and knowledge to better serve his patients. He believes that the process of learning new techniques affords him a wide range of expertise to push his practice to the forefront of the surgical arena.

Early in his career, he developed the philosophy that performing minimally invasive surgical procedures with state-of-the-art technology would benefit his patients.

These state-of-the-art surgical methods minimize wound infection, scarring, blood loss, and complications in the post-surgical stage, which ultimately leads to a faster recovery time. This dedication to personalized surgical care speaks to Dr. Lalezarzadeh’s commitment to excellence.
