Board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Chaudhry trained at some of the most prestigious institutions in the nation prior to starting his practice in Houston.
Dr. Chaudhry completed his General Surgery residency at the world-famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgery (weight-loss surgery) at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.
Dr. Chaudhry serves as Medical Director of the Weight-loss Institute at Bay Area Regional Medical Center. After a year into practice, he lead the hospital in earning accreditation for Comprehensive Center for Bariatric Surgery by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons. In 2016, he was named the top bariatric surgeon in the Houston Bay Area by The Bay Area Citizen (a local newspaper). These accolades are a testament to the quality of care he provides his patients. Dr. Chaudhry was the first surgeon to perform the intragastric balloon procedure in the Houston Bay Area, which is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure for weight loss.
Dr. Chaudhry also has a passion for advancing the medical sciences. He has published multiple surgery-related articles in peer-reviewed journals and has given multiple presentations at national meetings.
Aside from his passion in treating weight-loss, Dr. Chaudhry performs a multitude of minimally-invasive general surgical procedures as well. He surgically treats GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease) and complex paraesophageal hernias with laparoscopic techniques.
