David Jonathan was appointed Consultant ENT Surgeon at Frimley Park Hospital in April 1991. He trained at Guy’s Hospital, the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, St. George’s Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, and went on to hold fellowships at the University of San Francisco, California and Melbourne, Australia.
While his practice encompasses all aspects of ENT, he has special interests in otology (diseases of the ear), balance disorders and childhood ENT problems.
During his twenty years as a consultant he has developed expertise in the surgical management of middle ear disease (ear drum perforations, cholesteatoma and stapedectomy surgery), and since 1999 has been responsible for running a regional Bone Anchored Hearing Aid service. He is enthusiastically engaged with the training of junior surgeons at regional and national levels, being the regional Programme Director and Chairman of the National Association of ENT Programme Directors.
Mr Jonathan has a keen interest in the aviation-related aspects of ENT; he is the Honorary Senior Lecturer in Aviation Otolaryngology at King’s College, London and ENT Advisor to the Civil Aviation Authority.
He is the civilian advisor in ENT to the British Army.
He has published many articles on a variety of ENT topics, and has presented papers at both national and international levels. He is a contributing author to a recent textbook on aviation ENT.
