Consultant Ear Nose and Throat Surgeon
MBChB, MS, MD, FRCS (ORL-HNS)
"I love working at Spire Hospitals; the facilities and equipment I need in the clinics and theatres are readily available. The entire staff is committed and supportive; keeping patients at the centre of what they do."
I have been practising ENT surgery since 1996. I graduated from Alexandria University in 1994 with a grade “excellent with honours.” I completed ENT training at Alexandria Main University Hospital and was subsequently appointed as a lecturer in Alexandria University. I moved to the UK in 2004 where I completed my M.D thesis, and a few more years of ENT training including completing two advanced fellowships in surgery of the nose and the sinuses. I was appointed as a consultant at BHR University Hospitals in February 2013. In 2014, I spent six weeks visiting a world class ENT centre of excellence in Italy where I gained further experience in advanced endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery.
I have a broad experience in all ENT fields and the expertise to perform a wide variety of ENT procedures. I have a special interest in nose and sinus surgery including corrective surgery for nasal blockage, endoscopic sinus surgery, endoscopic removal of nasal and sinus tumours and cosmetic nasal surgery (rhinoplasty). Additionally, I have a special interest in surgery of benign neck lumps, as well as voice and swallowing disorders. I perform all general ENT procedures eg tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, grommet insertion and septoplasty.
To date I have performed over 4,000 procedures covering all aspects of ENT.
I am currently the clinical governance lead for ENT at Queen’s Hospital. In addition to my position as a UK consultant, I am also an associate professor of ENT at the University of Alexandria, Egypt.

I have completed two major research projects which led me to the awards of Masters and M.D degrees in ENT. Additionally, I am regularly involved in research studies which help me to identify the best practice for management of my patients.
I am a reviewer for Clinical Otolaryngology Journal, a highly cited ENT journal, and one of the two main UK published ENT journals. I am also a reviewer for a number of online ENT journals.

I live in Chelmsford with my wife and three children. I enjoy a variety of outside interests, as I am very keen on sports, and practise body building regularly. I love nature and enjoy bird watching. I also enjoy reading a wide range of books, particularly in the fields of history and zoology.
