Professional profile:

After registrar and senior registrar training at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London I was appointed Consultant ENT surgeon at Barts in 1989. In 1992 I moved to the coast as Consultant ENT surgeon at Southend Hospital NHS Trust, where I practice as a rhinologist and otologist.

I provide a service in extended applications in rhinology including endoscopic surgery of the sinuses and orbit/ lacrimal system and closed and open structure surgery for functional nasal deformity

I am on the teaching faculty of the national courses In endoscopic sinus anatomy and surgery and in advanced skills in open structure rhinoplasty in Cambridge and Dundee. I am also on the teaching faculty of the Bristol course in endoscopic sinus anatomy and surgery.

I also provide a service in complex otology viz stapedotomy, ossiculoplasty and combined mastoidectomy.

We regularly audit our results against published national and international standards.
