Consultant ENT Surgeon


"Spire Gatwick Park Hospital's total focus is on patient care in everything they do."

Specialises in

  • Grommets insertion
  • Sinus surgery
  • Tonsillectomy and adenotonsillectomy
  • Middle ear and outer ear surgery
  • Sees adults and children at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital

I have been an ENT Consultant since 2016. I specialise in general ENT with specific interest in ear disorders, balance disorders and children ENT.

To date I have performed over 1,000 tonsillectomies including more modern intracapsular techniques. I have also performed over 1,000 ear operations including mastoid surgery, eardrum reconstruction and implementation. I have performed over 500 sinus operations and over 10,000 operations in total in my 13 years experience in ENT.

I see the majority of the children and patients with balance problems in my NHS base of East Surrey and Crawley Hospitals so have a lot of experience in these areas.

My training in ENT was supplemented by further training in complex ear surgery and cochlear implant surgery in children as young as 11 months. I continue to provide support for colleagues in caring for patients requiring ear surgery.

I have been the Clinical Lead for the ENT department in Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust since 2021.

I am in the process of becoming an Appraiser of doctors in all areas of practice.
