Professional profile

I have been appointed as a Consultant with a special interest in Glaucoma in the Hull & East Yorkshire NHS Trust for over 2 years now since 2013 and started my practice in the Spire Hull more recently in 2015. I practice in the latest methods of monitoring patients with glaucoma through modern diagnostics and treating them with standard and newer procedures and surgeries. Since joining the department I have started the new service of Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT laser) for treating glaucoma patients. Apart from specialising in glaucoma filtration surgery (Trabeculectomy), I am one of the few surgeons across the UK to have introduced the minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery, the Xen® Gel stent in the Yorkshire region. I also have expertise in phacoemulsification cataract surgery and particularly specialise in complex cataract surgery in glaucoma patients. Since commencing my consultant post I have been performing hundreds of intraocular surgeries every year and have performed thousands of cataract surgeries until now. I have also since performed hundreds of laser procedures for glaucoma. Presently I am the lead for clinical governance in Ophthalmology in the Hull & East Yorkshire NHS Trust and also represent our specialty in our Health Group Governance meetings within the hospital. I have undertaken my higher specialist training in Ophthalmology in the Yorkshire deanery rotation between 2007 and 2012 based at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. Following my general ophthalmology training I have undertaken one further year of advanced subspecialty training fellowship in Glaucoma at the St James’s University Hospital, Leeds in 2013. Prior to my higher specialist training in the UK, I had obtained a Masters degree (MS) in Ophthalmology following the successful completion of a 3-year residentship programme in Ophthalmology from the University of Calcutta, India. I have publications in international peer reviewed journals and regularly attend national & international meetings to keep myself updated with the latest knowledge base and skills in my specialty.
