Arash Momeni, MD

Arash Momeni, MD is an Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto, California. Dr. Momeni’s clinical interests include complex reconstruction of the breast, head and neck, trunk, and extremities after cancer and trauma. His goal is to help patients get back to normal functionally, so that they can resume their work, family and social lives.

Working out of the Stanford Women’s Cancer Center, Dr. Momeni performs autologous (free flap) breast reconstruction such as the DIEP flap, which uses a woman’s own tissue to recreate breasts. He also offers Resensation®, an advanced surgical technique that has the potential to restore sensation to the breasts of women after reconstruction.
