      Have used Dr. Ahmed for both a gull bladder removal and bi-lateral hernia repairs with last 2 years. All aspects of both surgeries were handled professionally and successfully. Both surgeries were done laparoscopic with recovery times of just days with little to no postoperative pain. The office staff and surgical teams were also very good and easy to work with. I would recommend Dr. Ahmed and his team for any of his surgical procedures.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
