BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Kaviani grew up in Newport Beach, California, and after graduating from high school, moved to the east coast where he attended the University of Pennsylvania. He completed his undergraduate studies with honors in 1992, and attended medical school at Boston University. He completed his residency in general surgery at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut in 2004.

Dr. Kaviani completed a compulsory two-year research component of his general surgery residency at Harvard Medical School. His work focused mostly on stem cell isolation and tissue engineering. At the completion of his general surgery residency, Dr. Kaviani left for the Cleveland Clinic Foundation to complete a fellowship in vascular and endovascular surgery, training with some of the leaders in the field. During this two year fellowship, he participated in over 900 major vascular operations. Dr. Kaviani was recruited to join the Association of South Bay Surgeons in 2006. His interests include open and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair, as well as endovascular peripheral interventions, including carotid stenting. He is board certified in general surgery and vascular surgery. Dr. Kaviani has authored over 30 peer reviewed publications and 12 book chapters. He currently serves as the Chief of Staff at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance, Ca.

Dr. Kaviani is a specialist in Arterial Evaluations

When there is blockage or narrowing of the leg or arm arteries, you may have pain, coldness, numbness, paleness...

“Quantitative” Reward in Giving Back

Vascular surgeon Amir Kaviani, MD, finds parallels in medicine and his passion for restoring cars.
When not suited up in scrubs, vascular and endovascular surgeon Amir Kaviani, MD, can often be found operating under the hood of one of his classic Alfa Romeos. He fell in love with these cars as a child. Today, refurbishing them is one of his passions.
“It’s my time to chill and escape. I love resurrecting something that’s old and returning it to be something cool and functional again,” he says.

Thoracic and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

What is an aneurysm?
An aneurysm is a localized, blood-filled dilation (balloon-like bulge) of a blood vessel that is caused by disease or weakening of the vessel wall...

Advanced Endovascular Interventions

Endovascular surgery is a technique which is revolutionizing the field of vascular surgery. This procedure allows surgeons to make a few small incisions (usually in the patient's groin area). Instead of an open operation with an incision that can be 18-36" long in some cases, the surgeon uses x-rays to guide small catheters and devices through the blood vessels to open clogged arteries.

Dialysis Access Surgery

Dialysis is the most common treatment for kidney failure. A dialysis machine is an artificial kidney that is designed to remove impurities from your blood. During dialysis, the dialysis nurses use the dialysis access to access your bloodstream, so your blood can be circulated through the dialysis machine.

The doctors at the Vein Center at South Bay Surgeons offer the finest, minimally-invasive treatments available for varicose vein disease.
