Dr. Ahmed has extensive experience in athletic coverage, including professional events, and injury management across all levels of athletes. Specializing in non-surgical sports and spine medicine, Dr. Ahmed received her medical degree from the Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar, where she was also peer selected as the recipient of the Good Physician Award (“He/She that demonstrates those qualities of an ideal physician”). She completed her residency training in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at Weill Cornell Medical College and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Ahmed then pursued an interventional spine and musculoskeletal fellowship at a private practice in New York City’s bustling midtown Manhattan followed by a sports medicine fellowship at Stanford University, one of the country’s most prestigious programs.

With a graduate degree in human genetics as well as training in integrative medicine, she brings a unique understanding and approach to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of sports injuries. Dr. Ahmed’s treatment philosophy is one that incorporates and optimizes an individual’s nutritional status and lifestyle to cultivate and promote tissue healing, prevent injury and optimize performance. This approach in conjunction with her skill sets in regenerative orthopedics, diagnostic and interventional ultrasound has frequently resulted in profound success stories.

Dr. Ahmed’s research focus is on sports genetics and nutritional genomics. She is passionate about improving our understanding of the role of genetics in musculoskeletal injury risk as well as the molecular mechanisms that underlie physical performance, cellular aging, injury and repair. In the dawning age of genetic testing, Dr. Ahmed’s work is pioneering and paving her path as an expert in the emerging field of sports genomics.
