Over the course of her specialist training, fellowships and now as a consultant, Mrs Tambe has gained expertise in adult and paediatric oculoplastics, cataract surgery and general ophthalmology.
Mrs Tambe's specialism lies in managing patients with eyelid malpositions, tumour reconstructions, eyelid and adnexal trauma. With her oculoplastic and peri-ocular training and expertise, she is highly placed in delivering excellent cosmetic results in the peri-ocular region.
She has a long and excellent track record in cataract surgery. She is a highly competent cataract surgeon and enjoys the challenge of taking on the more complex cataract surgery cases.
Mrs Tambe is an experienced lacrimal surgeon and routinely manages patients with watery eyes.
Prior to her appointment to the post of consultant at the Queens Medical Centre in June 2010, she undertook Fellowship training to give her an in-depth experience in her chosen specialist field. Mrs Tambe's first Fellowship in oculoplastics was as an ASTO (Advanced Subspeciality Training Opportunity) for one year at Leicester. She followed this on with a six month Paediatric Ophthalmology ASTO at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Having built a solid foundation on oculoplastics and paediatric ophthalmology Mrs Tambe then embarked on a one year fellowship at the world renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital, where she was trained in adult lid and lacrimal pathology and paediatric oculoplastics.
In the West Midlands Training Programme, Mrs Tambe received an excellent training in all aspects of ophthalmology as a specialist registrar. The Birmingham Eye casualty is the second largest and busiest Eye casualty in the UK and this forms the basis of her confidence in taking on general ophthalmology work as well as emergency care of ophthalmic patients. Cataract surgery is an area of ophthalmic surgery that Mrs Tambe immensely enjoys and an area in which she constantly endeavours to update her skills.
As a consultant Mrs Tambe actively undertakes audit and research, which is integral for improving the quality of care and safety of her patients. She has presented on a range of topics at regional, national and international meetings, both as a participant and an invited speaker. She has published in peer reviewed journals and continues to undertake and supervise research projects as a consultant.
