He is also a key member of Spire Roding's team of ENT consultants, and undertakes general ENT procedures at the hospital, including FESS (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery), septoplasty, reduction of turbinates, grommets, adenoids, tonsillectomy for adults and children and removal of head and neck lumps, bumps and skin lesions.

Mr Papesch's NHS practice is divided between Whipps Cross and Newham University Hospitals in east London, and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, where he specialises in benign and malignant head and neck tumours. He is a member of the British Association of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgeons (BAETS).

At his private practice at Spire Roding Hospital in Essex (on the east London borders), Mr Papesch welcomes both privately insured and self-funding patients.
