I trained in general ENT surgery at Bristol, Cardiff, Newport and Cape Town (South Africa). My subspecialty interests are in otology and paediatric ENT surgery, with a special interest in paediatric laryngeal and tracheal disease. In the field of otology I am involved with cochlear implants, bone anchored hearing aids and middle ear surgery for chronic infection and deafness.I spent a years research at the nasal research centre, Cardiff, and continue to have an interest in rhinology, including structural (cosmetic) as well as functional nasal surgery.

Personal profile:

Originally from North Wales, I moved to South Wales in the late 1970's to study medicine. I am a fluent welsh speaker. I enjoy music, especially Jazz piano, and try to play golf (last year I won the 'Celtic Cup' at the Royal Society of Medicine). I am married with three delightful children.
