Learn about Dr. Ahmed

Care Philosophy

I graduated from Ohio State University College of Medicine and Public Health and then did an Internal medicine residency and am board certified in surgery and surgical critical care. 

Taking care of patients who are struggling with obesity and medical co-morbidities that could be alleviated by weight loss surgery has become my passion.  I understand the disease process unlike any other bariatric surgeon, due to my experience as an internist and surgeon.

In my mind, the most prized possession a person has is their health.  If you decide to have bariatric surgery, there is no better place to come than to Southern Nevada Bariatrics.  I understand what you are going through and the frustrations you have had struggling with weight loss.  Bariatric surgery is a tool that will help you loose the weight and gain your life and happiness back.

Hope to see you soon.

Dr. Ahmed and his team surpassed all other surgeons that I inquired about in heart, skill, and organization. The journey through the process is a tedious one. The entire team is dedicated to making the experience a smooth one. Dr. Ahmed provides a FREE seminar at which you may ask questions that help you decide if the surgery is right for you. I felt completely safe in his accomplished hands. My gastric sleeve surgery was a complete success.

Dr. Mustafa Ahmed was the nicest Doctor I've seen here in the Las Vagas. I was very impressed with his bed side manor. He was also the first Dr to tell me the truth! If you are interested in what's available please go to his office and talk to him. Also his staff is very knowledgeable and nice. Thank you Doc for gining me my life back. Lynn S.

Dr. Ahmed and his staff at Southern Nevada Bariatrics are the most understanding and caring folks I've met in the health industry in Las Vegas thus far. I would not recommend any other surgeon for bariatric surgery other than Dr. Ahmed. Thank you, Dr. Ahmed for changing my life!
