Dr. Abbass Sekhavat, MD
I was born in Iran. I finished Medical School in Tehran University. I came to United Sates in 1971, did my training in General and Orthopedic Surgery in Boston Massachusetts. While in training at Boston University in 1975 I fell in love with the Care of the Spine, which has continued all along. After practicing in Massachusetts for about 4 years, I moved to Texas. I have been in practice in Richardson, Texas since October 1982. I am married father of two wonderful sons, and 2 beautiful grand children, all of them living in Boston.

Dr. Sekhavat's Care Philosophy

Although I am a trained surgeon in Orthopedics, and have been doing spine surgery for over 30 years, I do believe very strongly in conservative treatment. In so many years of treating spine problems, I have come to the conclusion that in many situations surgery, and particularly spinal fusion can be avoided, and best is to be avoided.

Patient Comments (2)
in Rowlett, TX |
Fixed my neck twice
His new receptionist is not good. Slow, forgetful and should not assist patients. The doctor is great.
Thank you for your comments. I am so sorry that you did not have a good experience with my office staff. She must have had a very bad day. Please call me request to speak to me. I would like to get details regarding the problem that you experienced with her. I would appreciate it very much, and hope that with your help I would be able to make some changes for better care of my patients. Thank you again. Sincerely, Abbass Sekhavat, MD
