She uses a multidisciplinary approach to patients with head and neck cancer and snoring.

Jaan Panesar's position as a successful woman in a highly demanding and male oriented speciality was covered in the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Herald and Post. An extract reads:

Hospital consultants, and particularly surgeons, can sometimes appear aloof and even arrogant, but it's certainly not the case with Jaan Panesar, whose friendly and engaging personality seems sure to put her patients at ease.

Providing those patients with the best care and treatment she possibly can is her priority.

She says: "The general public has some pretty high expectations on the standards of conduct and service they want to see from the medical profession, and rightly so. We have a duty to strive to meet those standards."

Personal profile:

Mrs Panesar enjoys classical music and jazz. She also collects art and is a food and wine enthusiast.  She particularly enjoys cooking and baking for her four young children.
