About Us

Clinical Associate Professor Hairul Ahmad’s surgery is a well-established specialist surgical practice which provides expert management of a wide range of General Surgical, Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery and Endoscopy management.

Mr Ahmed in his office

We pride ourselves in providing a comprehensive, holistic service from pre-operative, operative to post-operative follow-up stages. Each step along the way you will be given written and verbal information regarding your forthcoming procedure and will have an opportunity to ask any questions. Disease specific information sheets (when relevant) will be emailed or sent to you when you make your initial consultation appointment with Mr Ahmad.

A Registered Nurse, Lorinda, will ring you at home after you are discharged from hospital to make sure there has been a smooth transition from hospital treatment. They will take this opportunity to make your complementary post-operative appointment and also organise work certificates or carer’s certificates if needed.
