Shaghayegh Aliabadi-Wahle, MD, FACS
My goal is to deliver evidence-based medicine to my patients in a personal and individualized manner.
Dr. Aliabadi-Wahle focuses on thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal surgery as well as management of breast cancer. Whenever possible, she emphasizes a minimally invasive approach to treatment of endocrine diseases. She is very interested in surgical care improvement outcomes and to that effect has been involved in multiple local and national committees to optimize patient care. She has served as the head of general surgery division, chief of surgery and Oregon regional medical director of surgery. For the last three years, she has co-directed the Advanced Endocrine Surgery Course at the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons annual meeting.
