Dr Hormozi has earned his MD from Ahwaz University of Medical Sciences in 1983. Being ranked as the top student, he went on to study General Surgery at Ahwaz University, while curing patients in war zones.
In 1989, he entered Iran University of Medical Sciences in Tehran and was awarded a degree in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery (being the chief resident among his peers for 12 months).
Dr. Kalantar Hormozi, however, didn’t stop there, furthering his education beyond the country’s borders. He succeeded to attend England, France, and Germany to receive his fellowship in craniofacial surgery. He was also granted a study leave in Face and Jaw Reconstructive Surgery at Yale University of the US.
Following that, he returned to Iran, starting to visit patients from across the country who were in need of corrective plastic and maxillofacial surgeries. Currently, Dr. Kalantar Hormozi is the head of the Craniofacial Surgery Department of Panzdah-e Khordad Hospital in Tehran.
He has also published many scientific articles in national and international journals. Some of them are listed below:

Why Is Dr Kalantar Hormozi So Famous?
While Dr Hormozi is a reputable surgeon among his peers and Iranian nationals, he is best known for the moral spirit he represented towards the poor. Since the beginning of his practice, he traveled to the areas where people live in poverty and suffer from congenital anomalies and performed hundreds of plastic surgeries free of charge.
From cleft lip and cleft palate repair surgeries to various types of maxillofacial surgeries, he carried out a wide range of complex surgeries with success.
