Mr Tysome read preclinical medicine at Cambridge University and clinical medicine at University College London. His ENT training took place in the London region including Guy’s and St. Thomas’, St.Bartholomew’s and The Royal London and Great Ormond Street Hospitals. He undertook a Skull Base fellowship at Cambridge University Hospitals before working as a Clinical Instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine in California, USA, where he gained further experience of skull base surgery, cochlear implants and transoral robotic surgery.
Since his comprehensive skull base training included advanced otology, endoscopic rhinology and open head and neck surgery, he is well equipped to deal with any ENT disease in both adults and children. He is also one of the few ENT surgeons in the UK trained to use the da Vinci robot for transoral robotic surgery.
Mr Tysome has won many academic prizes over his career including the gold medal from the Royal Society of Medicine for his ranking as 1st in the ENT examination taken by all ENT surgeons at the completion of training. He has edited two ENT books, published over 30 research papers and presented his work internationally on numerous occasions.
