I am a consultant ENT surgeon working in Bristol. I treat a wide range of ENT disorders and have subspecialty interests in head and neck surgery and diseases of the nose and sinuses. I also work with professional voice users and performing artists and I founded the North Bristol Specialist Voice Clinic. At present I am the clinical lead in implementation of the restructuring of ENT services within the city of Bristol.
I graduated from Oxford University in 1989. After a teaching post at St George’s Hospital London, I completed my basic surgical training with posts at St Mary’s Hospital, King’s College Hospital and the Royal Marsden Hospital. I then undertook specialist surgical ENT training at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals. This involved specialist experience in sinus surgery, hearing and balance disorders and thyroid surgery. I undertook a specialist post in paediatric ENT surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital. I underwent specialist training as a fellow at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia. At the completion of training I was awarded the Royal Society of Medicine Gold Medal in Laryngology as the highest placed candidate in the ENT intercollegiate exam.
I was appointed as a consultant in Bristol in 2002. I have subsequently developed a specialist practice in the management of complex head and neck surgery and sinus disease. This tertiary practise covers patients throughout the South West.
I am a faculty lead for teaching on a number of postgraduate surgical courses and have published on a wide range of ENT conditions and their treatments. I also carry out general ENT clinics and surgery.
My colleagues (David Baldwin, Michael Saunders) and I decided to form the Bristol ENT Partnership in 2008 to provide a comprehensive and professional service to all our patients with ENT disorders. The partnership allows us to provide a specialist service suitable to your needs.
I am married with five children and I am a keen tennis player.
