Dr. Ahmed M. Khan graduated magna cum laude from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, anatomy and physiology. He earned his medical degree from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. Dr. Khan completed his residency in neurological surgery at Brown University. He also completed an internship in general surgery at the University of Connecticut. Dr. Khan is chief of neurosurgery at The Hospital of Central Connecticut and an assistant clinical professor of neurosurgery at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He is a member of the board of directors of the Hartford County Medical Association.
Dr. Khan’s practice involves complex spine and cranial surgery. He implements the latest techniques in stereotactic radiosurgery, disc replacement and minimally invasive endoscopic surgery. He is one of the few Connecticut neurosurgeons who perform spine and brain radiosurgery.
To keep abreast of current technology, Dr. Khan is actively involved in research regarding lumbar disc replacements and stem cell technology for spinal fusions. He regularly consults on the development of spinal implants and teaches advanced techniques through workshops and lectures. Dr. Khan also treats patients for chronic pain by using many successful procedures, including the implantation of spinal stimulators. He performs the majority of his surgeries at The Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain.
“I try to treat patients as a whole and understand the other aspects of their lives,” says Dr. Khan. “So many things go with patients’ illnesses—inability to work, relationships with family, financial issues. I like to think that in our practice we help people in a complete manner, rather than focus exclusively on medical issues.”
