- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Ramsay Duchy Hospital (Truro) .
This package includes your appointments before and after surgery, as well as your surgery and mono-focal lenses. It means you won’t use up your out-patient benefit or receive any additional bills from your surgeon (or anaesthetist, if you need one) for eligible treatment.
Please call the Bupa Eye Care team to find out more about and to pre-authorise your treatment on 0345 600 7267.
Mr Patwardhan specialises in micro-incision phacoemulsification cataract surgery with use of premium intraocular lens implants. He offers one-stop service to cataract patients so that patients are assessed and diagnostic tests are completed on the same day.
He is an expert in treatment of macular conditions such as macular degeneration and macular oedema. He performs the diagnostic tests using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) retinal scan, OCT angiography and Autofluorescence technique to establish the diagnosis and offers treatment on the same day to stop further sight loss.
