Mr William Green
FRCOphth, FRCS, DO, BSc Physiol
My clinical practice encompass general eye conditions however, I specialise in cataract and vitreoretinal surgery and I regularly engage in teaching and training of junior surgeons.
I decided that I would study ophthalmology early in my medical student training and spent some time engaged in genetic research into retinoblastoma at The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, USA as a medical student.
I qualified in Medicine at The Royal London Hospital and undertook training posts in neurosurgery and plastic surgery. I then completed my ophthalmic training at Portsmouth and in London at St Thomas' Hospital, Moorfields Eye Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen's Square.
I was appointed to the post of Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Queen Alexandra Hospital in June 1995.
I am also a visiting fellow for the charities: Lifeline Express, in China and the World Sight Foundation. I undertake general ophthalmology and vitreoretinal outpatient clinics and surgery as well as laser and cataract operating lists.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr William Green at Spire include:
Vitreo-retinal surgery, retinal disease, neuro-ophthalmology, lacrimal disorders, corneal and external eye disease.
Spire Portsmouth 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.
