Dr. Nosrat Khajavi serves as the Medical Director at Elite Surgical, overseeing the clinical operations of the facility. He is noted as a proven patient advocate who will not compromise when it comes to patient safety.
Dr. Khajavi brings 20 years of clinical experience to his current practice, having performed anesthesia in a variety of settings and for patients of every age group. He has directed the Anesthesia Departments at several facilities. Dr. Khajavi is a highly experienced anesthesiologist who has performed over 5,000 spinal and epidural blocks.
Dr. Khajavi’s commitment to patient safety played an important role early in his career when he refused to participate in surgery that he and a patient’s primary doctor deemed to be unsafe. In the court case that followed, the California Medical Association filed a “friend of the court” brief on doctor Khajavi’s behalf. Since then, the case of Khajavi vs. Feather River Anesthesia Medical Group has become a legal landmark in protecting physicians who advocate for good patient care.
