Professional profile

I completed my medical education in Turin, Italy in 2002. During my medical education I studied as an exchange student at the University of Maastricht in Netherlands and University of Linkoping in Sweden. These early experiences helped me develop an open attitude towards change. I also completed all the three exams necessary to practice medicine in the United States in 2005.

I perform a range of ophthalmic surgical procedures ranging from cataract surgery, refractive lens surgery, pterygium removal (a pterygium is fleshy tissue that grows in a triangular shape over the cornea), childhood lid procedures including treatment for nasolacrimal duct obstruction (tear duct obstruction), squint surgery in children and adults, botulinum toxin for treatment of facial spasms and squints and tecnis symfony lens.

After my medical education and ophthalmology training at the faculty of medicine in Turin, I completed a year of fellowship on cornea in Milan, Italy. Following this I moved to the UK where I worked as a registrar in the Leicester rotation for two years. My first fellowship in paediatric ophthalmology was in Newcastle. This was followed by a second fellowship in adult strabismus and paediatric ophthalmology in Manchester. My main area of expertise is adult strabismus and paediatric ophthalmology but I enjoy seeing patients with a broad spectrum of eye conditions.

I organise a regional squint meeting for consultant ophthalmic surgeons with an interest in strabismus for the North West region. I'm a member of the Medical Advisory Committee at Spire Cheshire Hospital.

Whenever I get time I hop into my Lancia Appia for a little ride, that is only when my two young girls permit it.
