About me

As a consultant eye surgeon at the University Hospital Birmingham I have performed more than 10,000 successful cataract operations in Birmingham and the West Midlands.

I am a fee assured consultant, so your insurance provider will fully cover the costs of any treatment or surgery which may be required.

I can take referrals from either your optician or GP for cataract surgery.

As a highly experienced surgeon, Co-existing eye problems conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes and Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) are normally no barrier to the success of your surgery.

I perform most surgeries using topical anaesthetic (this means no needles are required) and this allows for your rapid recovery back to normal activity. For most people vision recovers within a few days of surgery.

Because I am a vitreoretinal surgeon I am able to manage the most complex cataract cases, and often normally undertake referrals from other eye surgeons where the surgery is regarded as too complex or when a complication has already occurred.

My experience working at the Royal Centre of Defence Medicine means I have unique experience in the management of cataract due to eye trauma

Every year I carried out more than 300 retinal vitrectomy operations.

As a retinal surgeon my areas of expertise include surgery for floaters, macular holes, epiretinal membranes, retinal detachments and diabetic eye disease.

I achieved my medical degree at University College London, where I also completed a specialist degree in medical microbiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

As part of the Vision 2020 project to eradicate preventable blindness, I participate in training surgeons both here and abroad, so they are able to acquire new skills which be used in their home countries.
