Syed Imraan Ahmed, M.D., is a fellowship-trained pediatric orthopaedic surgeon who is board certified and sub-specialty certified in orthopaedic sports medicine. His interests include hip preservation, sports medicine, limb deformity, trauma and the care of patients born with various syndromes and neuromuscular conditions.
Dr. Ahmed earned his medical degree from New York University while serving as a military officer for the U.S. Army. His internship and residency were completed at Brooke Army Medical Center, San Antonio, Texas, a Level 1 trauma and burn center. For seven years he developed an orthopaedic hip/sports and trauma practice while serving at the Brian Allgood Army Hospital in Seoul, South Korea and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Landstuhl, Germany. Always fond of taking care of children and enjoying the art of pediatric orthopaedic surgery, Dr. Ahmed went on to fellowship at Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego, California, a Level 1 pediatric trauma center.
After fellowship he practiced as a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland and Fort Belvoir Community Center, Belvoir, Virginia. At these locations he further developed a peri acetabular osteotomy hip preservation practice and became the sole pediatric orthopaedic surgeon for the children of military service members.
During his 20 years career he deployed three times (twice to Afghanistan) as a combat surgeon, was a director for Surgical Services at Ft. Belvoir, operated on children from conflict zones and rose to the rank of colonel. He also devoted his time on two civilian medical missions to Haiti.
Dr. Ahmed enjoys the energy and resilience that his patients bring, watching children grow up through life’s milestones, and meeting the unbelievably dedicated parents and caregivers. The youth are our future and he is grateful for the privilege and trust given to him to take care of his patients' musculoskeletal needs.
