Since then he also completed a fellowship in Head and Neck Tumor and Reconstructive Surgery under the mentorship of Dr. Robert E. Marx at the University of Miami in 2005.
Upon completion of fellowship, he served as Assistant Professor of Clinical Surgery in the University of Miami School of Medicine Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Miami, FL from 2005 to 2006 and was in private practice from 2006 to 2012 until his full time return to the University of Miami School of Medicine Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Most recently he served as full time Associate Professor in the University of Miami School of Medicine Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from 2012 to 2015 and remains as Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Florida College of Dentistry Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery since 2010.
He has now returned to the full time private practice of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Desert Ridge Oral Surgery Institute in Phoenix, AZ. He now serves as Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Arizona, Banner University Medical Center and the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Mesa, AZ.
Dr. Broumand spent 2 years in private practice in Boca Raton, FL and 4 years in Daytona Beach, FL from 2006 to 2012 and regularly participates in medical rescue missions and relief efforts. While in private practice he was also involved in extensive repair of craniofacial congenital and acquired deformities of adults and children through several non-profit foundations “Mission Rescate” and “Operation Changing Lives” in the Dominican Republic and Haiti and other medically underserved areas.
After the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, Dr. Broumand closed his private practice on 2 occasions and chartered a private plane to the Dominican Republic and put together a group of 8 doctors for immediate emergency relief. Once in the DR they were forced to drive 12 hours to Port Au Prince from Santa Domingo along rough terrain. While in Haiti, Dr Broumand and his group worked out of the University of Miami tent hospital constructed by Project Medishare to provide relief effort.
Since the devastating earthquakes he has led two mission trips to Port Au Prince in 2010 and 2011, and in 2010 he was able to bring a young lady with a large Ossifying Fibroma of 15 years duration from Haiti to Daytona Beach, FL for medical and surgical treatment.
He was able to fund her entire travel and stay in the USA through his foundation, and Halifax Medical Center generously funded her entire surgery and hospital stay in exchange for the 50 years of service that his partners Dr.’s Phillip Fleuchaus and Richard Gaines had given the community.
The Patient, Ms. Lorrette Pierre, underwent surgical and dental rehabilitation and returned to Haiti, he was able to see her for follow-up during two of his yearly visits to the DR in 2012 and 2015 in which he accompanies dental students from the University of FL teaching them exodontia and oral surgery in rural areas of the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
He devotes most of his clinical practice to comprehensive treatment of trauma and tumor related facial reconstructive surgery, surgical correction of TMJ disorders and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and nerve injuries, orthognathic surgical correction of craniofacial deformities and placement of zygomatic dental implants and has also been involved in extensive clinical research involving Bisphosphonate Induced Osteonecrosis of the Jaws (BIONJ). He is involved in live patient surgery courses nationwide involving full arch dental implant rehabilitation and placement of zygomatic implants. He is on the medical staff at all three of the major medical centers in Phoenix including the Phoenix Childrens Hospital, Banner Medical Center and Honor Health Medical Centers and continues to fly back to FL to teach the dental students at his alma mater on a quarterly basis.
