  • Biography

    I joined the Newcastle Eye unit in April 2017 after having been trained in Medicine in Siena (Italy), specialised in Ophthalmology in Milano (Italy) and having completed three fellowships in the UK in London (King’s College Hospital), Southampton and Bristol.

    My primary clinical interests are Vitreoretinal and Cataract surgery.

    In Vitreoretinal surgery my main focus is on diabetic retinopathy with its surgical implications and macular holes surgery, where I am a strong supporter of non-posturing technique which has also been the focus of my past research and presentations.

    I perform any kind of cataract surgery, including toric and multifocal lens implants.

    I also run Macular Degeneration Clinics in Cramlington, where I perform Intravitreal Injections for treatment of wet AMD.
