Roben Ahdoot, M.D.
Dr. Roben Ahdoot is a board certified interventional radiologist and a recognized expert in the treatment of Fibroid tumors.
Dr. Ahdoot received his bachelor of sciences at UCLA and then entered Chicago Medical School to receive his MD in 1995. Dr. Ahdoot’s interest in the field of Radiology was fostered by great mentorship by radiologists in Chicago Medical Center. He pursued a residency at UCLA Harbor Medical Center in the field of Radiology. In 2001 he was awarded his board certification by the American Board of Radiology. During his fellowship Dr. Ahdoot had the opportunity to work with Interventional Radiologists at UCLA and was amazed by the work they did in treating tumors and other medical conditions in an outpatient setting without the need for surgery or general anesthesia. His interest in treating his patients in a minimally invasive fashion with much reduced risk led him to apply and accept a highly competitive fellowship at Emory University Hospital in Interventional Radiology and MRI. Dr. Ahdoot completed this fellowship in 2001 and since then has focused his attention to the application of minimally invasive treatment of tumors and other diseases that before required a surgical solution. Dr. Ahdoot is the Chief Interventional Radiologist at Hawthorne Radiology Associates Group at California hospital, Intra-operative Consultant for Fibroid Embolization – UCLA CHS Special Center for (Endovascular) Surgery, Director of Radiology at 3 Tesla MRI Imaging and Research Center, and is active as a consultant in treating patients in several other hospitals and radiology centers.
Dr. Ahdoot has published many articles and is active in teaching and research.
