Dr. Kamran Sardari

Veterinarian

I was born and raised in a small town in Northeastern Iran. Taking care, grooming and feeding the dogs, cats and horses was a part of my daily life as a young kid, which played a key role to pursue veterinary medicine as my career in the future. I achieved my DVM in 1991, from Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Urmia University. After 4 years of practice in a Veterinary Teaching hospital, I started my postgraduate study (PhD, combined general surgery residency) at Tehran University. In 2000, I completed a one-year Fellowship as part of my surgery residency at Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Utrecht University, The Netherlands.

My career started from 2002 as an Assistant Professor of Surgery at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Iran. In 2010, for 1 year, I joined University of British Columbia, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Surgery, as a Research Associate Professor in Burn and Wound Healing Laboratory, where my main research was focused on knee arthritis and ACL (cruciate ligament) rupture in dogs.

In 2011 I wrote and passed the National Board Exams entitling me to practice veterinary medicine in Canada. My special interests include orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, minimally invasive surgery (arthroscopy and laparoscopy), dermatology, and internal medicine. I have published several articles in veterinary medicine scientific journals. I strongly believe in continuing education, which means that I am always learning newer and better ways to help pets, which will lead to their healthy lives.

In addition to being endlessly passionate about my field and my patients, I love the outdoors, I am eco-conscious and can be found hiking when not at work. I am also bilingual, speaking both English and Persian.
