LAS VEGAS (KSNV NEWS3LV) —
51-year-old Kayvan Khiabani will be greatly missed here at UMC. One of his specialties was microsurgery.. for instance, replanting a hand, or thumb that a patient might have lost in an accident. But beyond that, those who knew him say he was an amazing friend.
"It was a very tough day. You're using all your training to try to save a colleague", says Dr. Dale Carrison of UMC.
Dr. Dale Carrison knows it's bound to happen.
As chief of staff at University Medical Center, seeing a familiar face come through the trauma center is always a possibility.
On Tuesday, it was a fellow doctor, Kayvan Khiabani. He was hit and killed while riding his bicycle near West Charleson and Pavilion Center Drive.
"He was very well liked in the operating room. He was a nice man. You've seen the picture, the big smiling face, he always had that", said Carrison.
Doctor Khiabani also worked with the University of Nevada Reno school of medicine. He was helping to train the next generation of medical professionals.
His area of expertise wasn't limited to microsurgery.
In 2011, he appeared right here on News 3 for a discussion about the benefits of botox on migraines.
While Tuesday's accident is still under investigation, police say it appears the doctor lost control of his bicycle, and veered into the side of a tour bus. First responders acted quickly.
It's a loss. It's a loss to the community and it's a loss to his patients", said Carrison.
Carrison says while Khiabani's legacy will live on thanks to the countless doctors he helped train, the focus now, is on his family.
He says you learn quickly at a major trauma center to care for the living.

Police are searching for an unidentified Chicago man who’s been accused in the attempted kidnapping of an 8-year-old girl who fought him off at the park.
The eerie event took place Sunday afternoon when family members of the child say a group of local kids were playing together when the man approached and grabbed the girl, according to WGNTV.

The child claimed she fell off of her bike in the attack when the suspect placed a plastic bag over her head in attempt to keep her quiet without getting a visual of his face.
She then kicked him in the face, able to flee the scene unscathed — and rushed to her grandmother, Teressia Kidd's house.
"We thought everything was fine because around here we kind of look out for eachother, you know. So something like this you don't really just expect to happen," Kidd told ABC 7 Chicago.

Residents of the neighborhood were shocked when they got word of the reported kidnapping attempt.
"That's actually frightening. I actually never seen anything like that, I live right here," Gerardo Yepez said.
"Makes me don't even want to come to this park anymore," resident Janee Walker added.


The child’s mom, Cheniece Kidd, said her daughter stayed home from school Monday and is still “shooken up” from the incident.
The victim described the suspect to police as an African American male, around 5 feet, 5 inches tall with a medium build, brown eyes and dark hair.
He was wearing gray sweatpants and a red hat at the time.
