For orthopedic surgeon Dr. Alireza “Ali” Behboudi, becoming an ETMC First Physician seemed like a perfect career move. His fellowship training in foot and ankle surgey adds another specialty to the ETMC Orthopedic Institute. His orthopedic trauma fellowship makes him an asset at the ETMC Level I Trauma Center in Tyler.
But it is Dr. Behboudi’s love of helping people that makes him an excellent fit at ETMC, where he specializes in orthopedic trauma, general orthopedic care and comprehensive care of foot and ankle disorders, including treatment of deformities, bunions, hammertoes, flat feet, arthritis, diabetic foot, injuries and reconstruction.
Dr. Behboudi tailors each treatment plan to fit the specific needs, lifestyles and goals of his patients. “I believe that treatment starts with taking the time to listen to a person, followed by helping them to understand all of their options.”
