About me

I am a consultant eye surgeon who has performed over 15,000 eye operations in the NHS and private sectors since being appointed as a consultant at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Each year I carry out over 1300 surgeries for cataract and retinal problems.

As a fee assured consultant your insurance will fully cover the costs of any treatment or surgery required.

If you are self funding, my aim is to ensure that you are offered the most cost effective treatment.

I take referrals for all forms of cataract; including those which may occur in conjunction with other disease; such as diabetes or Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD).

As a specialist in vitreoretinal surgery I am able to manage the most complex cataract cases, and also takes referrals from other eye surgeons.

I carried out more than 300 vitrectomy operations last year at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for both urgent and elective conditions.

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

I perform most of my surgery using local anaesthetic as this allows for rapid recovery back to normal activity. For most people vision recovers within a few days of surgery and they are able to return to driving after one week.
