Professional profile

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon. I was born and educated in London, and qualified at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1996. I held surgical training posts in Emergency Medicine, Neurosurgery and Ophthalmology in London and the South East.

After completing my General Consultant Ophthalmic Training, I spent two years in Sub-specialist Fellowships in Oculoplastic & Lacrimal Surgery in Salisbury and at Moorfields Eye Hospital. During these two years I developed my sub-specialty interests in Cataract surgery, Eyelid Surgery and Tear duct Surgery.

I hold a Consultant post at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust. I have been Clinical Director for Ophthalmology, and have introduced and developed Eyelid and Lacrimal Surgery at the Trust. I take a keen interest in teaching the next generation of Trainee Ophthalmologists.

Personal Profile

Outside work, I enjoy swimming for relaxation, art and playing squash.
