Background Information 
Professional profile:

I am a consultant ENT surgeon and subspecialist rhinologist at Southampton University Hospitals. I was a trainee on the south coast ENT registrar rotation. Throughout 1997 I was clinical ENT fellow in Cape Town, South Africa and I have spent further periods of training as rhinology fellow in various ENT departments throughout Europe and the USA.

Although trained as a general adult and paediatric ENT surgeon, the specialty of ENT surgery has grown enormously and it is no longer possible to keep up to date and provide a high quality service in every area of ENT practice. Therefore, my Southampton University Hospitals ENT collegues and I are swiftly moving towards subspecialisation both within our NHS department and in the private sector.

I have been developing the subspecialty of rhinology locally through the extended role of minimally invasive endoscopic techniques and have set up a research base through close association with other university departments. I perform nasal plastic surgery utilising both closed and open (external) rhinoplasty techniques and I have a major interest in chronic facial pain.

Personal profile:

I am married to a consultant paediatrician, who has a major interest in dyspraxia, and we have two sons. My major interests outside work are sport related, although I have a long term ambition to own and manage a small restaurant.
