Professional profile

I am an experienced surgeon, with extensive experience in all aspects of ear, nose and throat (ENT). I am the lead for ENT in Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Trust. I qualified and trained in London, going on to complete fellowships from the Royal College of Surgeons and at leading centres in the USA to further specialist techniques.

I specialise in head and neck surgery, voice and vocal cord issues, snoring surgery, thyroid surgery, transoral Laser as well as complex paediatrics. This is in addition to routine ENT issues such as sinus surgery, tonsilectomy and management of glue ear.

To date, I have performed over 300 complex head and neck cancer procedures, over 400 surgeries on the voice box and airway. I also have huge experience in paediatric surgery having worked at Great Ormond Street.

As part of a commitment to education and sharing my techniques, I teach on a number of courses including the airway management, head and neck anatomy and at the Royal College of Surgeons.
