Professional profile

I am a consultant ophthalmologist at the Nottingham University Hospitals, NHS Trust. After completing my post-graduation in ophthalmology in India, I joined the West Midlands Training Programme in Ophthalmology, headquartered at the Birmingham and Midlands Eye Centre. During my training I undertook an Oculoplastics Fellowship in Leicester and a Fellowship in Paediatric Ophthalmology at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. To further my oculoplastic interests, I followed this with a further year of Fellowship training at the prestigious Moorefields Eye Hospital in London.

My specialty interests include; The management of patients with functional oculoplastic conditions including: eyelid malpositions like entropion, ectropion, droopy eyelids (ptosis), dermatochalasis requiring blepharoplasty; management of periocular cysts and lesions, watery eyes requiring dacryocystorhinostomy and thyroid related eye problems.

My cosmetic surgery specialization includes, removal of excess skin from the upper or lower eyelids (blepharoplasty), adjustment of upper lid height and appearance and removal of periocular skin lesions. I specializes in personalized aesthetic surgery with a focus on natural outcomes with minimal surgical intervention. I also run an Oculoplastics Fellowship Training Programme with my colleagues in Nottingham.
