Dr. Shahdad Saeedi, Los Angeles Podiatrist

 

At a time when Dr. Saeedi believed his professional basketball dreams would soon be realized, he suffered a devastating torn rotator cuff injury. The doctor then picked himself up and channeled his energy into studying sports medicine.

 

“Practicing sports medicine enables me to treat athletes so they can continue their path to become stronger both mentally and physically,” says Dr. Saeedi, who attended medical school at Western University of Health Services. “The most-rewarding part of my job is to be able to see athletes return to the sport they love. Often they come back with a new-found drive to be better than they were before.”

 

A member of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine, Dr. Saeedi specializes in Sports Medicine, Reconstructive Surgery and Diabetic Limb Salvage. He served his residency at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

 

To give back to the community, Dr. Saeedi launched a non-profit organization called Heeling Humanity. The group focuses on helping underprivileged communities received foot and ankle care internationally.

 

A current resident of the Wilshire Corridor, Dr. Saeedi, who speaks English, Farsi and medical Spanish, calls himself “the proud father to a fox terrier-whippet named Chamois”.

 

Dr. Saeedi is a lifelong fan of the World Champion Golden State Warriors (he grew up in the Bay Area). He also enjoys eating, as most everyone does at UFAI! He is particularly fond of beef and chicken koobideh.
