Mr Bijan Beigi
MD, FRCS, FRCOphth., DO
I am an Ophthalmic, Complex Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and the Ophthalmology lead at the University of East Anglia (UEA). I run the Ocular Adnexal Service in the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) and I am also the educational supervisor of this department. I perform more than 600 eyelid, mid face, cosmetic and reconstructive operations each year.
I set up a modern Oculoplastic unit in Norwich, which has been running since 1999. I also introduced an international Oculoplastic fellowship programme to Norwich.
I am the founder of the East Anglian Oculoplastic and Lacrimal Group for regional audit and clinical governance (1999), am an external clinical advisor for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and have been microsurgical course lead trainer since 2002. I am also a special clinical advisor to NICE for new surgical procedures.
I obtained my first medical degree in 1980 and had extensive ophthalmic, oculoplastic and paediatric ophthalmology training in the UK (Bristol Eye Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital). Since 2002 I have been a visiting professor to various international congresses, organising cataract and Oculoplastic workshops. I regularly contribute to scientific journals and am a member of the editorial board of international journals, such as for Orbit. In total I have produced over 60 publications and delivered over 100 lectures nationally and internationally in this field.
