Professional profile

I am an expert oculoplastic surgeon practicing in the clean and comfortable environment of Spire Hartswood Hospital, Brentwood, Essex and Spire Roding Hospital in Redbridge, Essex.

I specialise in the management of eyelid malpositions (congenital or secondary to aging & trauma), eyelid and facial lumps and high risk skin cancers, watery eyes & tear duct surgery, thyroid eye disease, restorative eyelid surgery post facial palsy, blind eye removal & rehabilitative eye socket surgery to include orbital implants & fat grafts. I offer advanced treatments for dry eyes & blepharitis and for facial dystonias (hemifacial spasm & blepharospasm).

I am one of the well known UK cosmetic oculoplastic surgeons offering eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty & brow lift), scarless droopy eyelid correction (ptosis) & revision cosmetic eyelid surgery. I am highly experienced in non surgical aesthetic facial rejuvenating treatments with Botox & Dermal fillers which includes liquid face lifts.

My NHS practice is based at BHR Hospitals NHS Trust (Queen's Hospital) where I head the division of oculoplastic surgery offering a comprehensive eyelid & lacrimal service for children & adults. I am a keen educator and run a surgical training wet lab in basic oculoplastic procedures.

I undertook my fellowship training in Cornea & Oculoplastics at the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead (1997), Oculoplastics at Salisbury & Southampton Eye Units (1998), and in Eyelid & Facial Aesthetic Surgery in the Craniofacial unit at The Chelsea & Westminster Hospital (2009). I have undertaken Oculoplastic fellowship training at the world-renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital (2000-2001) & subsequently worked in their prestigious Adnexal unit for a period of 7 years, where I trained budding oculoplastic surgeons. I am frequently invited to lecture at national & international meetings and regularly published in peer reviewed medical journals & textbooks.
