Mr Raghavan Sampath
MBBS, DO, FRCS(Ed), FRCOphth
I run a busy tertiary referral centre for lid, lacrimal and orbit surgery at Leicester Royal Infirmary and Spire Leicester Hospital. I trained at Manchester, Kings College Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital London.
I hold honorary contracts at various other hospitals such as Queens Medical Centre Nottingham, Milton Keynes and also a hospital in South India. I operate at these centres for complex pathology and for teaching purposes. I am one of the few dedicated eyelid surgeons in the country.
I am an internationally recognised trainer for the sub-speciality by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. My team continues to present research papers done under my supervision at international conferences in Europe, USA, Asia.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Raghavan Sampath at Spire include:
I am happy to see babies and children, but only for eye lid problems, watery eyes and orbital problems.
Spire Leicester Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
