Mr Prasad Kothari
Consultant ENT Surgeon
MDS, FDSRCS, FRCS, FRCS (ORL-HNS)
I provide a comprehensive service for all paediatric and adult ENT conditions. My special interests are head and neck cancer, thyroid surgery and salivary gland disease.
My dual training in dentistry and ENT, gives me a unique advantage in understanding and dealing with problems related to mouth and face. I also have an interest in the treatment of swallowing disorders. I work closely with a speech therapist and dieticians to provide a fully comprehensive solution for this problem. My other clinical interests are the treatment of snoring and sleep apnoea and I work with consultants from other specialities to provide a truly multi-disciplinary team approach for treatment.
I qualified as a medical graduate from the University of London in 1998 at St Bartholomew's and Royal London Hospital. Prior to this, I trained as a dentist and was awarded a Master's degree and fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. I then finished my surgical training and embarked on my higher surgical training in ENT and head and neck surgery. I have a general training in ENT and also received specialist head and neck cancer training in Holland and India. I am accredited by the Specialist Advisory Committee in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and have been awarded a certificate of completion of specialist training by the training authority of the Surgical Royal Colleges.
I have published many scientific papers and presented at national and international meetings.
