General Surgery – Kidney and liver transplantation

Dr. Seyed Ali Malek Hosseini was born in 1949 in the village of Cheshme Chenar in Boyer Ahmed- Yasuj.

His father and ancestors were great scholars of the region. He spent his adolescence and youth in Yasouj and Shiraz, and after completing his secondary education, he was admitted to nomads Academy, and then returned to Yasouj and worked as a teacher in Mazdak village for two years.

He then participated in the entrance exam and entered the veterinary department of Tehran University. He, who had lost his mother due to liver disease, participated in the entrance exam again in the same year and was accepted into the medical department of Tehran University in 1974.

In 1990 he went to the United States of America to undergo a liver transplant sub-specialty course, and in May 1992 he performed the first liver transplant in Iran and the Middle East and earned the title of the father of liver transplantation in Iran. He performed the first live-to-live liver transplant in Iran.

He completed the complementary course of liver transplantation in many countries including England. In the second course of lasting faces, he was recognized as a lasting face in the field of vital organ transplantation and vascular surgery.
