I am a consultant Ophthalmologist at Hull University Teaching Hospitals. My surgical expertise encompasses simple and complex cataract surgery as well as management of retinal diseases. I have diverse experience in retinal surgery and offer state-of-the-art suture-less retinal surgery for a range of retinal disorders.

I trained across the UK, Japan and Egypt and completed my residency and obtained a Master’s Degree from Suez Canal University hospital in Egypt.
