About Mr Ellabban

Mr Ellabban is a consultant ophthalmologist with a subspeciality interest in Cataract surgery and retinal diseases at Hull University teaching Hospitals. Mr Ellabban has performed thousands of cataract procedures. Cataract surgery is mostly performed under local anaesthesia for optimum patient comfort. Mr Ellabban is also experienced in managing complex and technically challenging cataract in complex situations or combined with other procedures.

Mr Ellabban has diverse experience in retinal surgery and offers state-of-the-art suture-less retinal surgery for a range of retinal disorders including macular hole, epiretinal membrane, floaters, vitreous haemorrhage and retinal detachment. He also provides intravitreal injection treatments for retinal disorders including Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Maculopathy, and Retinal Vein Occlusion.

Mr Ellabban was trained across the UK, Japan and Egypt. He completed a PhD from the world-renown Kyoto University in Japan focusing on macular diseases. He is a senior lecturer at Hull York Medical School and has more than 35 publications in peer-reviewed ophthalmic journals and co-authored 2 book chapters. His research was presented in the major ophthalmology meetings across the world.

Mr Ellabban was invited as a guest speaker to many national and internal meetings. He participated in over 15 multicentre trial investigating new modalities for treatments for retinal diseases.

His main leisure interests are sporting including road bike, football and enjoys following Formula1.
