Associate Professor Farid Meybodi
Farid Meybodi is a specialist Breast and Endocrine Surgeon and an Associate Professor at the University of Sydney. He has earned recognition for his excellence and accomplishments in breast surgery. However, he remains passionate about General and Endocrine surgery.
He is part of a renowned dynamic team at the forefront of Oncoplastic Breast Surgery, using the most current, up-to-date techniques to provide the best possible cancer-free patient outcomes and cosmetic results.
Farid attended his father's medical practice from a young age and became enthusiastic about medicine. Years after, as an intern, he immediately knew that surgery would be the ideal career choice for him. A discipline embodies knowledge, skills, confidence, and dedication as an everyday adventure.
After completing one of the most extensive surgical training programs in Iran, he achieved first place in the National Board Examination. As a result, he was appointed as an Assistant Professor of Surgery at SBMU in Tehran. Farid migrated to Australia in 2007 and was awarded FRACS following further training and successful assessment by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2013. He spent three years as a Breast and Endocrine Fellow in Nepean, St George, and Westmead Hospitals. During his final year of training, he focused more on oncoplastic breast surgery and personalised care for breast cancer patients – which has now become his main area of subspecialty and expertise.
As an Associate Professor at the University of Sydney, Farid is passionate about teaching and research. His special area of interest is oncoplastic breast surgery, particularly breast reconstruction. He likes innovations and has introduced two practice-changing innovative techniques in breast implant reconstruction and volume replacement breast surgery. They have received much interest from many Australian and overseas surgeons and have been published and presented in multiple meetings.
