Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Ziad Estephan at Spire include:
I am an experienced ophthalmologist with 19 years of post-training experience in ophthalmology including 13 years in the UK.
I have excellent skills in cataract surgery with a few thousand documented and continuously audited cases. The results of a recent audit of my toric intraocular lenses to correct astigmatism was comparable to the results of large eye hospitals in the UK.
In my recent appraisal, the audit of intra-vitreal injections and laser procedures, showed that the complication rate was 0%.
In addition, I have excellent skills and knowledge of medical retina, general ophthalmology and laser procedures. My general ophthalmology experience is very wide and that includes acute eye diseases, non-surgical glaucoma and neuro-ophthalmology.
While in training, I was found to have enough skills that in 2009 I was trusted to establish, organise and lead the age-related macular degeneration service in Peterborough.
I am permanent consultant at Calderdale and Huddersfield Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. I have trainees attached to most of my clinical and surgical sessions. In addition, I am on the consultants’ on-call rota. I actively participate in the post-graduate training meetings.
In the UK I worked at University Hospitals Aintree NHS Foundation Trust (Liverpool), Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts and Since September 2013 I have been working at Calderdale and Huddersfield hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts.
Special Clinical Interests: Cataract surgery with different models of intra-ocular lenses including toric intraocular lnese. Medical retina: In general, all aspects of medical retina, including treatment of age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, intra-vitreal injections of different drugs. General ophthalmology, including neuro-ophthalmology, non-surgical glaucoma, eyelids and corneal diseases.
