Dr Surenthiran qualified at King’s College Hospital Medical School, London and did most of his postgraduate training in London and in Manchester, where he was also a Lecturer at the University of Manchester. He is one of the UK’s leading specialists in the treatment of balance disorders and has a national and international reputation and referral base. His work has been featured on the BBC national and local news as well as on ITV and Channel 4 and in national and local newspapers.
He set up the Balance Centre at Medway Maritime Hospital which is now widely recognised as a Centre of Excellence in the management of balance problems.
With regard to balance disorders, a study of 50 patients he has seen has shown that, on average, they had been unwell for 44 months before they saw him and in that time had seen at least 2 other hospital specialists (about 5 times) and their GP an average of 8 times. However, these same patients were, on average, 70% better 9 months after their first visit to him.
He also diagnoses, quantifies and is able to recommend the most appropriate treatment / management for hearing loss and tinnitus.
Dr Surenthiran lectures regularly at national and international conferences and courses. He organises and runs the Vestibular Rehabilitation Course (Basic and Advanced Parts) and is on the Faculty of the Leicester Balance Course. His research interests include balance disorders and tinnitus.
