After the completion of his orthopaedic residency, Dr. Bagheri sought even more specialized training to become an expert in treating spinal disorders. Accordingly he completed the San Diego Spine Fellowship (one of the nation’s most esteemed fellowship programs) under the direction of Behrooz A. Akbarnia, M.D.

Since then, Dr. Bagheri has settled into the practice at SDCSD. He treats many patients weekly and continues his research and publishing endeavors.
Dr. Bagheri has currently presented eight papers and scientific posters at professional medical meetings, and has also co-authored two book chapters. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and North American Spine Society. Dr. Bagheri was recently elected as a new Candidate Fellow of the Scoliosis Research Society (the leading society for spine surgeons)
Dr. Bagheri has enjoyed the re-location from the East coast to California, and is now firmly established in the San Diego area.
