I obtained my MBBS degree from Madras University 1985 and then
underwent my higher surgical ophthalmology training(MS;DO) from
Jipmer in 1990(www.jipmer.edu) one of the premier medical
institutes of India. During this time I completed my thesis on
'PXF and Autoimmunity in Glaucoma'.
I came to UK and undertook further training as well as
completing the necessary Felowship examinations (FRCS).
In 1999 I undertook a Mersey Deanery approved 'Oculoplastic
surgical subspeciality Fellowship'.
I worked as locum consultant at Sandwell and Birmingham
hospitals till I joined this Trust in 2003.
I enjoy my work immensely and my research area is related to
watery eyes/Thyroid Eye disease/Periocular skin cancer as
I tend to keep fit and take part in gym activites as well as
various other sports including golf.
'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly,
efficiently and professionally with full explanations and
compassion from all staff involved'.
