Dr. Amjad's love for helping children started the journey he is still on today.
He completed a 6 year Med program, completing college and medical school in 6 years as opposed to the traditional 8 years.
After the harsh Upstate New York winters, Dr. Amjad came to Mt. Sinai Medical Center on Miami Beach, one of the busiest General Surgery Community Teaching Hospitals. Operating from Day 1, he began to develop his skills. Realizing his passion was making children whole, he left Miami for plastic surgery training in Ohio. Again Dr. Amjad was accepted and went to one of the busiest Plastic Surgery Community Teaching hospitals, but he also chose this program because of the huge pediatric plastic surgery experience. This allowed him to operate and treat a patient with the KLS RED, the second patient in Ohio at the time, reinforcing his desire for cutting edge techniques. Once again the harsh winters convinced him to return to Miami. Not content with his 7 years of intense surgical experience, he decided to do a Pediatric Craniofacial Plastic Surgery Fellowship at Miami Children's Hospital.
Now Dr. Amjad blends his practice with children and adult patients and continues to bring cutting edge techniques to his patients.
We asked Dr. Amjad what he thinks is important about being a plastic surgeon:
"Good surgeons know how to operate, better ones when to operate, and the best when not to operate. Because I can perform a complex operation does not mean I need to. Being a patient advocate means knowing when I can help and when I cannot."
Advocating for his patients does not stop with medicine; Dr. Amjad completed his MBA at UMass Amherst Isenberg School of Business, one of the top business schools in the country. He uses his MBA to assist patients and his staff in navigating the complex insurance issues that many of his reconstructive patients have.
