Professional profile

Availability at Spire Roding Hospital: Mondays 2.00 pm - 4.30 pm and Fridays 6.00 pm - 8.00 pm. Clinic availability at Spire Hartswood: available on request.

I am a Consultant Surgeon with expertise in all aspects of adults and childrens ear, nose and throat conditions at Spire Roding Hospital, Redbridge and Spire Hartswood Hospital, Brentwood, our clean and comfortable private hospitals.

My main passion is to provide care to patients with complex ear problems. My immense wealth of experience comes from my initial training in busy ENT centre in India and then further training in the UK. I have experience of performing more than 500 cases of cholesteatoma. I use laser in-ear surgery to improve surgical outcome. I receive referrals from GPs and colleagues from my NHS Trust and neighbouring NHS Trust hospitals.

My advanced training in voice disorders was completed at University College London. I have subspecialist interest in managing patients with voice and swallowing disorders. I also offer rhinoplasty procedure for both functional and nasal valve problems and also perform stapes surgery for patients with otosclerosis.

I have undertaken postgraduate training in centres of excellence in India and was awarded a Masters Degree. After completing my further training in the UK, I was awarded Fellowship (FRCS) from the Royal Colleges of Surgeons.

I have publications in peer-reviewed journals. I regularly present my work at international and national conferences.

I am a tutor on “Front of Neck Access course” and revised tracheostomy guidelines for our NHS trust. I have also introduced “Airway alert pathway”.
