When asked why Dr. Alipour picked General Surgery as his specialty, he stated “I’ve always enjoyed working with my hands and fixing things! During my training, I felt safe and comfortable in the operating room. It’s extremely rewarding helping patients recover from a surgical disease.” Dr. Alipour is also a private pilot, and enjoys flying in his spare time, along with spending time with his family. Dr. Alipour believes that developing community relationships is very important, and said “I was drawn to Beauregard Health System because I enjoy practicing in small communities where people know each other well. After hearing about the opportunity to establish relationships with the people at BHS and the DeRidder community, I felt it was a great fit for my family.”

Dr. Alipour will be joining David J. Brown, MD, and Michael K. Hsu, MD, at Beauregard Surgery Center in DeRidder. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 337.463.8556.
