It can be daunting undergoing hand or wrist surgery for the first time without knowing the person you’re putting your trust in, so we’ve decided to bridge this gap and help you get to know your surgeon.
Today, we will dive into the background of Ladan Hajipour, and fill you in on her extensive background, knowledge and skills she’s developed over the years to make her one of Manchester’s leading hand and wrist surgeon’s.
Ladan’s surgeon story begins in 1991 when she studied Advanced Zoology and Biology, at Tehran University. She achieved a BSc, which would become a huge stepping stone in her illustrious career. Once this first achievement was obtained, the next prize Ladan had set her eyes on was an MB ChB at the University of Dundee. MB ChB means ‘Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery’, which is a tough degree to accomplish, but Ladan passed the test with flying colours.
After she completed her degree, the next step on her journey to becoming a surgeon was challenging the MRCS exam. This is where you will be examined to see if you possess the correct knowledge and skills to complete basic training. If you pass this exam, you will have the opportunity to reach higher levels of specialist surgical training. Once again, Ladan Hajipour passed this latest examination, which pushed her further up the surgeon ladder.
The next logical step Ladan had to take was studying for an FRCS, which is a qualification where you can study to be a senior surgeon in Ireland or the United Kingdom. After undergoing this in 2010, Ladan gained the FRCS certification. . In 2013, she began studying for her MD, which is a doctor of medicine degree – a truly prestigious achievement to accomplish. Just like the previous challenges faced, she passed this degree based on the hand flexor tendon treatment, and has published and presented many scientific papers at both national and international meetings.
Throughout the years Ladan has also won numerous University and postgraduate awards, which has helped her leap boundaries in the medical industry. If you would like to learn more about what she’s accomplished, find out more here.
