Mr Michael Armstrong
Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon
MBChB, FRCS (Edin), FRCS (Lon), FRCS-ORL (Ed), FRCS-ORL (Lon)
I graduated from Edinburgh University Medical School in 1986. My pre-registration year was completed in general surgery under the Queen's Surgeon in Edinburgh and in respiratory medicine. Thereafter I qualified in general surgery before resuming my training in ENT Surgery at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in London.
I returned to Edinburgh to complete my training. As a Registrar I developed a service for the diagnosis and treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. I also trained in New York under Professor Blitzer to set up a national clinic in the treatment of head and neck movement disorders with Botox, which was the first of its kind in Scotland and second in the UK.
I was subsequently appointed as a Consultant Otorhinolaryngologist in 2000 and practice in the Borders and Edinburgh.
I have provided an ENT private practice for adults at Spire Murrayfield Hospital since 2001.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Michael Armstrong at Spire include:
Ear Nose and Throat (ENT)
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Murrayfield and Shawfair Park.
Rhinology. Snoring / Obstructive sleep apnoea. Laryngeal dystonia. Head and neck movement disorders.
I enjoy people. I enjoy meeting patients and providing them with the information that they need to allow them to make the right decisions about the most appropriate treatment for them. I have a wife and four young children, which occupy my free time and are a source of joy.
