"Great reputation from colleagues and a real family feel from meetings with several members of the team."
I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist with specific surgical expertise in state-of-the-art micro-incision (keyhole) cataract and oculoplastic surgery.
I graduated with a medical degree from Manchester University and with a very early interest in ophthalmology, I went on to gain further medical elective experience in this field at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital and spent an influential time in the Cook Islands.
After finishing rotations in general medical and surgical fields, I completed my post graduate ophthalmic specialist training in the West Midland deanery. This was followed by a further fellowship in oculoplastic, lacrimal and orbital surgery at one of the largest tertiary referral centres in the country; Birmingham Midland Eye Centre.
I am a clinical supervisor and responsible for teaching ophthalmology trainees cataract and oculoplastic surgery. I have several publications and I have been invited to review articles for peer-reviewed journals. Furthermore, I have presented at national and international levels.
I am an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. I am a full member of the British Oculoplastic Surgical Society. This prestigious society is a national governing society that upholds excellence in research and training. Furthermore, it promotes the highest standard of clinical practice in the field of functional and aesthetic eyelid surgery, also referred to as oculo-facial surgery.
