Personal profile

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham since 2014. My training has been in international centres of excellence having graduated in medicine from The University of Cambridge and completed a two-year medical and surgical glaucoma fellowship at the world prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital. It is here where I worked closely with two of the UK founding fathers of modern-day glaucoma filtration surgery.

I have published over 20 peer-reviewed scientific papers as well as written a book chapter in the world’s best-selling glaucoma textbook for specialists. My research has been published in the most prestigious ophthalmology journals and I have presented my cataract and glaucoma research at major national and international ophthalmology conferences where I also have regularly been invited to speak, chair and moderate educational sessions. I am also the undergraduate lead for ophthalmology at the University of Nottingham School of Medicine, and am responsible for providing the highest level of ophthalmology teaching for medical students.

I have performed over 3000 cataract operations with a complication rate significantly lower than the national average. I am vastly experienced in glaucoma 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 modern-day techniques and am a clinical examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.

My aim is to always 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.
