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 both The London School of Hygiene 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 state of the art 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 1500 small incision cataract operations each year as outpatient procedures under local or topical anaesthesia.
