Professional profile

My training has been in international centres of excellence. I graduated in medicine from the University of Cambridge and hold a first class honours degree in biochemistry. My residency training was in Cambridge and the West Midlands where I developed a keen sub-specialist interest in glaucoma. I then completed a two year medical and surgical glaucoma fellowship at the world prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital, where I worked closely with two of the UK founding fathers of modern day glaucoma filtration surgery.

I have published over 15 peer reviewed scientific papers as well as written a book chapter in the world’s best selling glaucoma textbook for specialists. I have published my work in the most prestigious ophthalmology journals and presented my research work at all the major national and international ophthalmology conferences and I am regularly invited to speak, chair and moderate sessions at them.

I have performed over 2,000 cataract operations with a complication rate significantly lower than the national average. I am vastly experienced in glaucoma filtration surgery including augmented trabeculectomy and aqueous-shunt tube surgery and have performed hundreds of laser treatments for glaucoma including selective laser trabeculoplasty and cyclodiode laser. I have trained several international fellows in these techniques and I'm an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists as well as a trainer on the prestigious microsurgical surgical skills course.

My aim is to provide the highest standard of glaucoma therapy, cataract surgery and ophthalmic expertise in a caring and informed manner, as well as the most up-to-date and appropriate treatment for my patients.

Personal Profile

In my free time I enjoy photography, cycling, gardening and playing table tennis. I’ve also recently taken up art classes with my wife and look forward to painting some of the beautiful Nottingham countryside.
