I graduated from Manchester Medical School in 1982. I trained in general ophthalmology at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital before undertaking subspecialty training fellowships in oculoplastic surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London and and in oculoplastic, orbital and lacrimal surgery at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, USA, where I also gained experience with plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, ENT surgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons and dermatological surgeons.
I am the single author of the major textbook ‘OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY‘ (1st edition published by Martin Dunitz, 2002, the second edition published by Informa Healthcare, December 2010). The 3rd edition is currently in preparation.
I was the Section Editor for oculoplastic and orbital surgery for EYE, the scientific journal of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, for over 15 years.
I was the founder Treasurer of the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society (BOPSS) (www.BOPSS.co.uk) 2001-2006. I am a former President of BOPSS (2011-14).
I am also a member of:
- The European Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons (ESOPRS)
- The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO)
I am an inter-specialty member of BAAPS, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (www.BAAPS.org.uk ) in recognition of my expertise in aesthetic eyelid surgery and the management of other surgeons’ complications of such surgery.
I ran an internationally renowned sub-specialty training fellowship in oculoplastic, orbital and lacrimal surgery for over 20 years, training surgeons from around the world.
I have over 100 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and I have contributed 6 book chapters, including a chapter on blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) in the Scott-Brown ENT textbook. I have presented scientific papers, given lectures and run courses in many countries including the United States, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
