“Mr Ahmed performed my laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery in January 2022, and my experience from the initial contact, hospital stay and to my post surgery follow up appointments has been truly outstanding in every aspect of my care. I am 4.5 stones lighter 3 months post surgery and my life has transformed as my obesity related health problems have resolved and I feel so much more healthy and fit now. Dr Ahmed’s expertise, advice and exceptional care were crucial in enabling me to always feel safe in his care and in achieving a full and speedy recovery post-surgery with no complications and with the most amazing weight loss progress to date. Mr Ahmed’s team was also exceptional in my care throughout this process. This was the first time I self funded my medical care and I had lots of questions for Dr Ahmed who was very patient and understanding of my concerns; he provided me with clear and personalised information that addressed all my worries and concerns. Thank you “
