About Mustafa Ahmed, MD

Mustafa Ahmed, MD, is a board-certified bariatric surgeon at Southern Nevada Bariatrics in Las Vegas. He has more than 20 years of experience helping patients achieve their dreams of improved health and self-esteem. He believes that a person’s most prized possession is their health and works hard every day to help his patients achieve happiness via healthy lifestyle changes. 

Dr. Ahmed attended Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, for his medical education. After graduating in 1996, he completed an internal medicine residency with Mount Carmel Medical Center.

After completing six years as an internist, Dr. Ahmed decided to change direction in his career and become a bariatric surgeon. During those six years, he often treated patients for obesity-related conditions like high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and coronary artery disease. He also saw his patients’ frustrations as they attempted weight loss and remission of their conditions to no avail. He finished a general surgery residency at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, and later, he completed fellowships in surgical critical care and his current specialty, bariatric surgery.

Dr. Ahmed goes beyond treating the symptoms of obesity to treating the underlying disease itself. He monitors patients’ progress before and after they commit to surgery to ensure that they get the most out of their treatment and leave with the tools needed to maintain their health.

When he isn’t at Southern Nevada Bariatrics creating custom weight-loss plans or performing bariatric surgery, Dr. Ahmed enjoys spending time with his wife and five sons. Together, the family loves to stay active with swimming, hiking, and soccer.
