Mr Alex Baneke
MA(Oxon) MBBS FRCOphth
"Spire is an excellent hospital that provides first class care to patients."
I am a consultant ophthalmic surgeon specialising in glaucoma and cataract surgery. I offer cataract surgery with monofocal, toric (lenses that correct astigmatism), extended depth of focus and multifocal lens replacement.
I offer a wide range of glaucoma laser and surgical treatments including selective laser trabeculoplasty, trabeculectomy, tube surgery and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery.
I hold degrees from Oxford University and University College London. The majority of my 7-year ophthalmic speciality training was spent at the world-renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital, concluding with an 18-month fellowship in surgical glaucoma. There I developed significant expertise in treating patients with both routine and complex glaucoma and cataract.
I have extensive research experience, including a research fellowship in glaucoma from Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, and my work has been published internationally. I run fellowships at Southend and Orsett hospitals training eye surgeons in glaucoma and cataract surgery.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Alex Baneke at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Hartswood Hospital.
