Dr. Sonya Ahmed

Sonya Ahmed, MD, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained Orthopedic Surgeon with expertise in treating foot and ankle disorders. Her surgical interests include arthroscopic, minimally invasive and open treatment of all foot and ankle disorders, including athletic and reconstructive procedures and cartilage transplant procedures. Dr. Ahmed’s desire to become an orthopedic surgeon was driven by her lifelong love of gymnastics, track and field and her intimate understanding of the impact of injury and recovery on all levels of an athlete. She was the first female pole vaulter inducted into her school’s Hall of Fame. Dr. Ahmed’s accolades speak to her expertise and reputation as she has served as a consultant to the San Diego Chargers, the San Diego Padres, and a regional medical provider for the United States Olympic Team. She has also consulted on athletes with foot and ankle injuries in the NFL, MLB, NCAA, NBA and competitive dance companies. The United States Olympic Committee also selected her as the Chief Medical Officer for the Youth Winter Olympic Games in 2016.
