Mr Anil Pitalia

Surgeon - Consultant Ophthalmologist

Emphasizing personalized care and surgical expertise, Mr Pitalia is one of the UK’s leading ophthalmic surgeons working in both NHS and private care. Mr Pitalia has over 15 years experience in the NHS, treating patients with glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, tumours and other medical and surgical conditions. As lead surgeon at SpaMedica, Mr Pitalia sets a very high standard and requires all other SpaMedica surgeons to match this. “With cataract surgery, the average patient is quite elderly and requires that little bit of extra time and care. But I have always said that every patient -regardless of age- should be treated as you would want one of your family to be treated, and it holds true from all of the staff at SpaMedica”.
