Top awards for consultant ophthalmologist Amar Alwitry.
A CONSULTANT ophthalmologist, who operates across the East Midlands, including Loughborough Hospital has won two awards at the ghp Private Healthcare Awards.
Amar Alwitry scooped the Best Ophthalmologist 2019 award as well as the UK and Patient Safety Innovator of the Year title at the awards ceremony.
Mr Alwitry, from Mids-Eyecare, has published more than 35 research articles and has a Masters in Medical Law, working with NHS Resolutions and NHS Improvements to improve patient safety.
He performs more than 1,600 cataract procedures per year and has undertaken specialist training in premium lens use. He explores how he works to ensure excellence for every patient he treats.
He said: "Professionally, I specialise in cataract and refractive surgery so undertake mostly cataract surgery often with premium lenses such as trifocal, extended depth of focus or toric lenses.
"The aim is to make the patient happy and my reputation hopefully has been established. Sometimes its wiser not to operate and I pride myself on delivering a level of care which I would want my parents to receive.
"As part of this approach my motto is be kind to your patient, and I strive every day to do that. That encompasses listening, empathising, caring but also be kind to them in giving them the best possible surgical outcome.
"I am kind to them by making sure I am up to date with the latest literature and advances. Additionally, I also remove the stress and the fear from what can be a stressful and worrisome time. Fundamentally, I am giving them the best chance of better vision with minimal risk, and I take great pride in my work at all times."
