Ambar Matta, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Ibecame a surgeon because I wanted to follow in my Father’s footsteps. He was the biggest influence on my career choice and I actually had the unique opportunity to train with him during my residency. That experience was invaluable to me. In this ever changing and growing field of surgery, it is very important to keep up with current advances. In my spare time I keep up-to-date with various journals from the societies. I also try to attend as many conferences as possible. I truly want to offer my patients the best options available to treat their surgical needs. This includes advanced minimally invasive and robotic surgeries as this is the new frontier in general surgery. When I am not working with my patients, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my wife, exploring Washington, DC and Northern Virginia, supporting the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals, and playing tennis and basketball.
