Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Somnath Banerjee at Spire include:
Mr Banerjee treats retinal vascular disease, diabetic retinopathy and also performs macular hole surgery and vitreo retinal surgery under local anaesthetic.
In my general ophthalmic practice I perform small incision cataract surgery (phakoemulsification) as well as treating glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. In my retinal clinic I manage patients with age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), macular hole, retinal detachment and complicated cataracts. 90% of my retinal surgery is performed under a local anaesthetic.
I trained in ophthalmology in Aylesbury and Birmingham. Subsequently, I performed a fellowship in vitreo retinal surgery for one year in Birmingham followed by a further fellowship in both medical and surgical retinal diseases in Toronto.
I am the Training Programme Director for Ophthalmology, East Midlands.
I am happy to take Instructions from Solicitors in cases of personal injury and clinical negligence involving vision and the eye.
Special clinical interests: Macular hole surgery. Local anaesthetic vitreo retinal surgery. Retinal vascular disease. Diabetic retinopathy. Modern intraocular lenses.
