Mr Ravi Sharma
Consultant Paediatric Otolaryngologist
M Phil, FRCS (ORL-HNS), FRCS Ed, DLO, MBBS
I endeavour to provide the best possible clinical care to all patients, be it in the private sector or in my clinical NHS practice.
I qualified in Delhi, India in 1987 with overseas experience working in India and Bahrain. I did my postgraduate surgical training in ENT surgery at Yorkshire deanery where I developed a sub-specialty interest in paediatric otolaryngology.
I did focussed paediatric ENT training at Sheffield Children's Hospital and a year’s clinical fellowship at Evelina Children's Hospital (part of Guys and St Thomas' Hospital), London where I gained valuable experience in airway reconstructive surgery in children. I have also done a rhinology fellowship with world renowned FESS surgeon, Prof Stammberger in Austria.
I have conducted research to study the hearing loss with age in mice, for which I was awarded an MPhil degree from Keele University in 2006. I have over 25 publications in the field of ENT.
I am employed as a consultant ENT surgeon at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, the largest children's hospital in the UK. I am part of the regional cleft team providing hearing surgery for children with cleft palate serving the population of the North West and North Wales.
My practice involves specialised airway assessment and treatment of children with complex breathing disorders. My interests lie in diagnosing, investigating and treatment of children with sore throats, hearing problems and sleep disorders arising from enlarged tonsil and adenoids. I am the lead surgeon for provision of surgical treatment of drooling in children.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Ravi Sharma at Spire include:
Consultant paediatric otolaryngologist, Alder Hey Children's NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool.
Honorary clinical lecturer, University of Liverpool.
Outside my professional work, I am a family man with a lovely wife and two beautiful daughters at high school. My wife is extremely supportive despite being in full-time employment herself. We encourage good family virtues in our children and have fun cycling and walking together.
I enjoy meeting people, travelling and reading books. The leisure activities include playing badminton, swimming and cooking.
