Dr. Ahmad Safra is a board-certified transplant and general surgeon. He joined Inova Health System in 2021 and has been practicing since 2006. 

Dr. Safra completed a fellowship in multi-organ transplant where he gained extensive experience in liver, kidney and pancreas transplant in addition to hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery.
