I undertook a Gastric Sleeve at The Weight Loss Clinic. Mr Ahmed was amazing from my consul station to my surgery to my recovery. He assured me I would get the results I wanted and he did a fantastic job with my incisions. Would 100% recommend, his team are amazing too :) Thank you to Mr Ahmed & his team for a fresh healthy chapter of my life.

I have been a patient of Mr Ahmed in the capacity of both Bariatric surgery and General surgery both of which he specialises in. As you can imagine it's always nerve wracking to make that decision of the right surgeon/specialist for you and your needs, therefore I did plenty of research before coming across Mr Ahmed. Although many can be academically suitable, it is important for me to feel comfortable and confident with the specialist I am putting all my trust in. I am so pleased to say my experiences with Mr Ahmed have portrayed all of the above, he is extremely commited to his patients aswell as the skills and service he offers. His vast knowledge and passion of his work is evident when speaking to him. He is professional, efficient, thorough yet down to earth and reassuring. I couldn't have been happier with my decision to have both my procedures with him. Both my procedures were done within days of my initial consultation, diagnostic tests were actually done on the same day and his response to email queries is just fantastic both pre and post operatively. My incisions from 2 surgeries that he has performed are practically non existent, the finish of the incisions were done so well and they healed so much better than any other incision I've previously had, and I've had a couple that even after more than 8 years are bulging, untidy and very visible. His suturing alone is artistry, which is not a big deal for most but unfortunately for me, scaring on my body tends to keloid and raise, which thankfully have not been the case with these procedures. I would highly recommend Mr Ahmed as a consultant surgeon to anyone in need of his specialities. I have also recommended him to a few of my friends who have equally been extremely happy with their treatment and outcomes.
