DR. M. MAHER SUEDE gains the greatest satisfaction from his general surgery practice when he is able to reassure, cure or improve his patients’ lives. “Patients come to us with a serious problem,” he says. “They’re nervous or scared. We’re able to see them through the whole journey, to offer comfort, compassion and the most advanced surgical techniques to improve their lives.” Dr. Suede sees patients for a variety of medical conditions including thyroid and parathyroid problems, breast tumors, gallbladder disease, hernias and small- and large-intestinal disorders. In treating these conditions, he uses the most advanced minimally invasive, laparoscopic and robotic surgery. He also uses state-of-the-art office-based endovenous treatment for varicose veins that will allow patients to return to work and their normal lives in a very short period of time. He has earned a reputation for providing expedited, compassionate care for all his patients, and especially patients referred to him with a possible malignant condition. Dr. Suede says that a major reason his practice stands apart from others is the wide range of procedures he offers for the treatment of various problems. “Because of excellent results and my friendly caring staff, patients return for different conditions, and refer their family and friends,” he says. He adds that his patients today are much more educated and informed than they’ve been in the past. “Patients conduct research online. As a result, they’re able to look up their physician reviews in advance. This only serves as a benefit in that it increases their awareness of treatments and in general improves the quality of their care.” Dr. Suede earned his medical degree from Damascus University School of Medicine in Syria and interned at Monmouth Medical Center. He completed his residency in general surgery at New York Methodist Hospital and a fellowship in surgical critical care at Hartford Hospital. He is board certified for surgery and surgical critical care by the American Board of Surgery. He is the chairman of the Department of Surgery at Eastern Connecticut Health Network and a member of the Breast Care Collaborative program there.
