I qualified as a doctor from the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine, University of London in 1991 and trained in London working as a research fellow at the Institute of Ophthalmology, Moorfields Eye Hospital and the University of London.
Part of that fellowship was spent in the field in Mongolia followed by two years running a glaucoma surgery trial in Singapore.
My higher surgical training was completed at Addenbrookes Hospital in the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation trust where I also undertook a fellowship in Oculoplastic and lacrimal (tear duct) surgery.
Whilst at Cambridge I trained in the surgical management of functional and cosmetic abnormalities of the eyelid and lacrimal system.
In addition to the services I provide at Benenden Hospital, I work with the NHS as a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.
My clinical interests are small incision cataract surgery and oculaplastic procedures including blepharoplasty, ptosis repair, entropion and ectropion correction.
