- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital, Spire Hesslewood Clinic .
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.
I have been practising as a Consultant Ophthalmologist with special interest in Vitreoretinal Surgery in Hull for over 12 years. I undertook a surgical retinal fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital in 2004 and am an active member of the British and Eire Association of Vitreoretinal Surgeons. I am also an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and an experienced cataract surgeon. I am currently principal investigator for 2 national clinical trials in Hull and take an active role in teaching and training.
I am married with 3 children, 3 Springer spaniels and am actively involved in our local church. My outside interests include vehicle restoration, cycling and music.
