Background Information 
Professional profile:
I am a Consultant Ophthalmic & Oculoplastic Surgeon at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust in Cambridge.
I graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School, London in 1991. I then trained in general medicine, general surgery and emergency medicine before starting specialization in Ophthalmology in 1994.
Most of my training has been in London teaching hospitals and includes four years subspecialty training as a fellow in oculoplastic, lacrimal & orbital surgery with two years at Moorfields Eye Hospital & a further two years at The Western Eye Hospital, London.
My practice covers all general ophthalmology but my special interests are small incision cataract surgery, oculoplastic surgery including ptosis, entropion/ectropion, eyelid reconstruction following tumour excision, the surgical rehabilitation of thyroid eye disease and tear duct or lacrimal surgery (including by an endoscopic approach).
I have a keen interest in cosmetic eyelid and facial surgery and offer non-surgical facial treatments such as Botox and fillers. I am able to offer lower lid cosmetic surgery via a transconjunctival ‘internal’ approach avoiding any external scarring and I have a particular special interest and experience in ‘re-do’ eye surgery following unsatisfactory results elsewhere.
Personal profile:
I am married with one daughter. My outside interests include cooking, eating and keeping fit. I also work overseas in a charitable capacity on a regular basis.
