Dr. Yehia Elebrashi is nearly an Arizona native, originally born in Los Angeles, California but moved to Phoenix with his family during early childhood. He attended Deer Valley High school and moved on to gain his undergraduate degree in Genetics and a Cell Developmental Biology at Arizona State University. During his undergraduate years, Dr. Elebrashi gained his first patient care experience at Scottsdale Healthcare as a patient transporter and then later as a chemistry laboratory assistant. He utilized this opportunity to collaborate with many physicians/surgeons and attain shadowing experiences in his spare time. It was during this time that he gained a profound interest in patient care and surgery. He also participated in a variety of volunteer community-outreach and charity programs.
Dr. Elebrashi continued on to complete his Podiatric medical degree at Midwestern University. He successfully completed a rigorous 3-year residency training at Maricopa Medical center in Phoenix, a level 1 trauma and burn center, consisting of a 1-year General Surgery/Trauma/Burn internship followed by a focused 2-year Podiatric/Orthopedic surgical inpatient service and high-volume community health clinic. His residency training also provided him with extensive experience in the private office and outpatient surgery setting, while training under the guidance of highly-skilled and respected practitioners around the valley. He gained a vast experience treating a host of simple and complex pathologies. He is currently completing an additional year of fellowship training with focus on trauma, advanced forefoot and rearfoot surgery, elective reconstruction, revisional surgery, minimally invasive surgery and limb salvage.
Dr. Elebrashi has a drive to continuously explore the advances in medical technology and surgical technique in order to provide his patients with the most effective and up-to-date therapies. He is well prepared to address any pathologies of the lower limb in patients of all ages. He has a strong interest in complex cases including trauma, reconstructive/minimally-invasive surgery, regenerative medicine, sports medicine and limb salvage. He continues to expand and refine his clinical and surgical knowledge through participation in a multitude of training courses both locally and internationally.
Dr. Elebrashi is proud to be a first generation American surgeon of Egyptian heritage. He values his dual culture as means to effortlessly engage with people of diverse cultures and backgrounds. He is fluent in Arabic and continues to expand his Spanish dialogue. He has a love for nature, art, music, travel, animals and soccer (futbol). His friendly orange cat Richard Parker always keeps it interesting. When he is not treating patients, he can usually be found hanging out with family and friends, exploring the Arizona outdoors or admiring your local art gallery. Dr. Elebrashi is also committed to teaching residents/students and leading underserved community-outreach efforts.
