Clinical Research Description
A native of Nashville, Dr. Jahangir completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the Campbell Clinic in Memphis, TN. He then completed an additional year of subspecialty training in Orthopaedic Trauma at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, MN.

Dr. Jahangir received his medical degree from the University of Tennessee in Memphis, TN, and a Bachelor of Science degree from the George Washington University in Washington, DC. His clinical interests include the treatment of the polytraumatized patient, as well as the care of a wide variety of fractures.

Dr. Jahangir also has an interest in health policy, and has had the opportunity to be actively involved in the policy making and implementation process at both the state and federal level, serving most recently as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons health policy fellow.

Dr. Jahangir is married to Helen, a speech language pathologist at the Bill Wilkerson Center at Vanderbilt.  Together they enjoy outdoor activities and traveling.
