    امین جهان بخشی:

     با کمال تاسف امروز خبر درگذشت استاد بزرگ جراحی اعصاب آقای پروفسور کریم حدادیان را شنیدیم. ایشان بنیانگذار گروه جراحی اعصاب دانشگاه شهید بهشتی بودند که اساتید بسیاری را تربیت کردند. ایشان همچنین بنیانگذار زیر شاخه های فانکشنال و اطفال بودند و به خصوص در زمینه اسپاستیسیتی، بسیار فعالیت کردند.

    همیشه افتخار می کنم که در کنار اساتیدی نفس کشیدم که ستاره های تکرار نشدنی تاریخ پزشکی ایران هستند. افرادی مثل پروفسور یلدا و دکتر عبدالوهاب در دوران پزشکی عمومی و پروفسور حدادیان در دوران رزیدنتی که اکنون در بین ما نیستند. و همینطور استاد مازیار آذر که اکنون توفیق کار کردن در کنار ایشان را دارم و آرزوی عمر طولانی برایشان دارم. نقطه مشترک این افراد ترکیب علم و اخلاق و پرهیز از انحصار طلبی و میل درونی به پرورش و رشد شاگردانشان با خرج عمر، علم و حتی آبرویشان است. این ترکیب کمیاب، از ایشان اسطوره های تکرار نشدنی می سازد.

    در ادامه بخشی از زندگینامه استاد حدادیان به قلم و دستخط خودشان تقدیم می شود. یادشان گرامی و روحشان شاد:


    "در سال 46 از دانشکده پزشکی تهران فارغ التحصیل شدم. پس از دو سال خدمت در سال 49 به عنوان رزیدنت (اولین دوره رزیدنتی) جراحی اعصاب مشغول کار و آموزش در بخش جراحی بیمارستان سینا، تحت ریاست آقای پروفسور آملی مشغول شدم. در دوره رزیدنتی به مدت 2 سال بعد از ظهر ها در مطب آقای پروفسور عاملی مشغول و آموزش دیدم. طی دوره رزیدنتی در محضر آقای دکتر صالح، آقای پروفسور عاملی و پروفسور سمیعی استفاده بردم. در سال 53 فارغ التحصیل شدم و در گروه جراحی شاگرد اول شدم. در بهمن ماه 53 به دعوت آقای دکتر ادیب یزدی در دانشگاه ملی سابق بخش جراحی را با مساعدت ایشان پایه گذاری کردیم.

    در سال 55 به فرانسه اعزام شدم و در دانشگاه مونپلیه در بخش جراحی اعصاب تحت ریاست پروفسور GROS مشغول آموزش شدم. پس از 6 ماه به عنوان آسیستان وارد کلینیک و در امر آموزش دانشجویان آن دانشگاه شرکت داشتم. طی 3 سال اقامت در فرانسه، در جراحی فونکسیونل و پدیاتریک تجربیاتی کسب کردم و توانستم گواهینامه ناسیونال فرانسه را در الکتروآنسفالوگرافی کلینیک اخذ کنم. در سال 58 به ایران برگشتم. در سال 59 به عنوان رییس بخش جراحی اعصاب انتخاب شدم و گروه جراحی اعصاب دانشگاه شهید بهشتی را تشکیل دادیم و به عنوان مدیر گروه انتخاب شدم."



    Professor Peiman Haddad

    was one of the greats in the field of radiation oncology in Iran. His scientific and ethical approach to almost every aspect of practicing medicine, educating young oncologists, and doing research work had made him so outstanding that his recent sudden death caused deep sorrow to everyone and irreparable damage to the oncology in Iran.

    As a professor of radiation oncology at Cancer Institute, Tehran University of Medical Science, and the director of radiation oncology research center as well, he conducted many remarkable articles in various fields of oncology, including neuro-oncology. Besides having a significant role in performing research and being a competent physician, he was also well known for humility and honesty among his colleagues and residents.

    During his 60-year-old life, he treated many people with cancer and trained capable students in the field of oncology. His absence is a great loss not only for his patients but also for all the young oncologists who have benefited greatly from his guidance and support.
