Surgical Associates was named to the national honor roll, which recognizes only 10 to 20 hospitals that provide the best care for a variety of procedures and conditions.
More than 4000 medical centers in 15 specialties were evaluated by Houstonia News. The rankings are meant to assist people to make informed decisions about where to receive care for life-threatening disorders as well as for more common, non-urgent procedures.
Dr. Shakir, the General surgeon in Katy was named “highly eligible” for all procedures and conditions, including pain management, heart attack, and stroke, as well as pre-and post-operative care.
After graduating from Medical School at Aga Khan University in Karachi, Pakistan, he ventured to complete his residency in General Surgery at the Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. He treats common general surgical problems like gallbladder surgery, hernia repair, and complex abdominal wall reconstruction as a general surgeon in Houston, Texas.
“Our team is headed by a double board-certified General Surgeon in Houston. We have been committed to providing quality care as a full-service general surgery practice in Katy, TX. As a general surgeon in Houston, we always try to ensure the best surgery facilities like Memorial Herman Hospital for local and overseas patients”, says Dr. Shakir, the only Board Certified Surgical Oncologist outside of the Texas Medical Center.

A patient named Wendy Brown says, “Dr. Shakir saved the life of my wife. She suffered a ruptured colon late on a Saturday night during the peak of the COVID-19. He operated on her late that same night. He talked to me the next day and made it very clear to me that her recovery would be a day at a time concern and that she was very sick. I very much felt that she was in very capable and professional care. A few months later he was able to perform a reversal operation to make her whole again. We are very pleased with the outcome of this set of events and we are forever grateful for his skill as a surgeon and doctor.”
The board members are also very concerned with the post-pandemic financial situation and urge their patients not to consider it as a barricade. In a recent talk- show, Dr. Shakir stated, “Making financial arrangements for your medical care can be daunting for those without insurance coverage. The business office personnel at Surgical Associates of Southern Texas can assist you with making a payment plan or other financial arrangements.”
