Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Shamuga Surenthiran at Spire include:
Audiological medicine: Hearing Loss (adult and paediatric), Neuro-otology Balance disorders
Allied Health Professionals: Hypnotherapy
I qualified at King’s College Hospital Medical School, London and did most of my postgraduate training in London and in Manchester, where I was also a lecturer at the University of Manchester. I am one of the UK’s leading specialists in the treatment of balance disorders and have a national and international referral base, receiving referrals and seeing patients from across the UK and from around the world. I estimate I have seen patients from every continent.
I set up the Balance Centre in the Neurosciences Unit at Medway Maritime Hospital, which is widely recognised as a Centre of Excellence in the management of balance problems.
With regard to balance disorders, a study of 50 patients I have seen has shown that, on average, they had been unwell for 44 months before they saw me and in that time had seen at least two other hospital specialists (about five times) and their GP an average of eight times. However, these same patients were, on average, 70% better nine months after their first visit to me. I also diagnose, quantify and am able to recommend the most appropriate treatment/management for hearing loss and tinnitus.
I lecture regularly at national and international conferences and courses. I have previously organised the Vestibular Rehabilitation Course (basic and advanced parts), which was one of only two or three such courses of its kind worldwide and is on the Faculty of the Leicester Balance Course.
I am actively involved in research and also work with the School of Psychology, University of Kent on a number of research studies. This has already resulted in successful PhD and MSc submissions for members of the research team, journal articles and conference presentations. I regularly lecture and present at national and internationally conferences, seminars and courses to doctors, allied health professionals and lawyers.
My research interests include balance disorders and tinnitus.
Special clinical interests: Dr Surenthiran specialises exclusively in the management of balance disorders (vertigo, unsteadiness, dizziness, and giddiness), hearing loss and tinnitus and is known nationally and internationally for his expertise in the management of balance disorders in particular. He is on the European General Medical Council’s Specialist Register as a specialist accredited in the diagnosis and treatment of balance disorders, hearing loss and tinnitus. He is also a very experienced expert witness dealing with the medico-legal aspects of balance disorders, hearing loss and tinnitus and is an adviser to the General Medical Council.
