After graduating in medicine from India, I completed my basic surgical training in Ophthalmology from Glasgow and Moorfields Eye Hospital, London followed by higher specialist training from Aberdeen. After gaining CCT I completed a fellowship in Glaucoma surgery from the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham.
I have completed training in advanced glaucoma surgery including augmented trabeculectomy, aqueous-shunt procedures (Baerveldt) and laser treatment in glaucoma. I have performed more than 250 augmented trabeculectomies, more than 100 aqueous shunt procedures as well as micro incisional glaucoma surgery (Xen implants). I specialise in complex anterior segment surgery including cataract surgery.
