I was appointed as a Consultant eye surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham in July 2008.
I trained at University College London before completing my fellowship from The Royal College of Ophthalmology (London) in Oxford at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
During my training I had the opportunity to work at The London School of Hygeie and Tropical Medicine and also Cape Town University Hospital in South Africa.
Since joining the Queen Elizabeth Hospital I have been able to develop and refined the state of the art retinal and cataract surgical techniques for the treatment of both NHS patients, and military patients at the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine.
My work on traumatic eye injuries was shown in the BBC One documentary
Wounded, and has featured in the Telegraph
I perform over 1000 small incision cataract operations each year, most as outpatient procedures under local or topical anaesthesia.
In addition to elective cataract surgery , I carry out over 300 retinal surgeries each year for macular hole, epiretinal membrane, retinal pucker and vitreous opacities/floaters.
I ensure continuous audit of my refractive outcomes to ensure accurate and predictable results.
As part of my role at Queen Elizabeth Hospital I teach new ophthalmic surgeons and medical students from the University Medical School.
As a partner in the 2020 World Vision Programme I travel to East Africa to teach retinal eye surgery in Tanzania.
