Mr Guna Reddy-Kolanu
Consultant ENT Surgeon
BSc BM DOHNS FRCS
"Spire Gatwick Park Hospital's total focus is on patient care in everything they do."
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 am the Clinical Governance and Audit Lead for the ENT department in Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.
I am in the process of becoming an Appraiser of doctors in all areas of practice.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Guna Reddy-Kolanu at Spire include:
Ear Nose and Throat (ENT)

My professional practice is strongly influenced by my personal life of being a family man with two kids and two dogs and by my joy of being fit, healthy, and fulfilled. My desire is that all patients should have the opportunity to be in good health for both them and their loved ones.
