- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Spire Elland Hospital .
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.
- Refractive surgery
Ophthalmology has been a passion of mine for over two decades. I feel privileged to work in a branch of medicine that has constantly innovated and evolved and now has an array of successful life-changing treatment options for patients.
I have sub-specialist qualifications in cataract and laser eye surgery (the Royal College Certificate in refractive surgery and the University of Ulster postgraduate diploma).
As the director for corneal services in North Manchester I now provide training for international fellows in cornea.
I am one of a handful of surgeons who is fellowship trained in treating both corneal disorders and glaucoma.
Fellowships (Advanced surgical training):
2012 Cornea - NIIOS (Melles Corneal Clinic & Amnitrans Eyebank), Rotterdam, Netherlands
An internationally recognised centre for pioneering corneal endothelial transplant techniques
2011 Glaucoma - Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham
