I am an ENT / Thyroid Surgeon with an NHS practice at Wythenshawe Hospital. I am also the Clinical Director for theatres at Manchester Foundation Trust.

I graduated from the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford and commenced my surgical training in London, moving to Manchester as an ENT registrar from 2004 - 2011. I spent a year in 2010 in Adelaide, Australia on a prestigious international fellowship with Professor Simon Carney and Dr Sam Robinson where I was able to devote time to advanced rhinology training and developed my expertise in the surgical treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.

I have performed over 5,000 operations and regularly contribute to national audits with excellent outcomes.

I am passionate about teaching. I participate in regular audit and I regularly evaluate the outcome of my surgery. Every facet of my clinical work is underpinned by the desire to provide high-quality, safe healthcare and I hugely appreciate the feedback and testimonials that my patients provide which is available on my website:

I believe in conservative management ahead of surgery and in formulating a unique treatment plan for every patient based on both their disease and individual wishes and circumstances.
