Pprivate practice





Infrastructure and start:

Start private practice as out-patients breast clinic in 2009 in a small flat in north of Tehran. The infrastructure of the office (required software and hardware) is prepared during 2008.

From the first day all processes for the patients’ records are planned to be paperless. The medical data of the patients are entered to the software (Hakim, pegahsoft®) and all documents of the patients were scanned and saved in the individual electronic record of each patient. Now, after about six years the records of more than 3000 patients (containing 1300 breast cancer patients) are saved in Dr Kaviani’s private database.



In  2008 Dr Kaviani has contributed in Laleh Private hospital and Shaghayegh Daycare Center. All surgeries in private setting, therapeutic, cosmetic, or reconstructive have been done in these two renown medical center in Tehran. Simultaneously, the medical data of the operations are entered to the same software from distant internet connections. During these years in both private and public sectors, more than 2500 breast surgeries are done by Dr Kaviani. Out of about them, 1100 cases of Oncoplastic Breast Surgery, 100 Conventional Breast conserving surgery, 950 mastectomies, 250 breast reconstruction, and 120 cosmetic breast surgeries have been done. For the Oncoplastic breast surgeries and the cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeries, there is a separate folder for each patient dedicated to pre-op and post-op photos, which is saved confidentially in their electronic medical records.



Based on the golden database more than 75 research articles have been published in peer reviewed national and international medical journals.


Archives of Breast Cancer:

In 2013, Dr Kaviani has started publishing a new medical journal named “Archives of Breast Cancer” (ABC).

ABC is an open access, peer-reviewed quarterly journal that publishes articles on all aspects of breast cancer research.
