Professional profile

Spire Wellesley, Southend availability: Mondays 5.30 - 9pm and Saturday mornings 9 - 12.30pm. Spire Hartswood availability: Wednesday mornings.

I have 20 years’ experience in ENT and have been a consultant within the NHS for the past 10 years. My specialist training was in London, where I received training in all aspects of ENT namely Otology, Rhinology, Paediatrics and Head and Neck surgery. I undertook my sub-specialty training in Head and Neck cancer surgery at the Royal Marsden, Charing Cross and University College Hospitals. I have been the clinical lead for Head and Neck cancer in Essex since 2012 leading the multidisciplinary team at Broomfield Hospital.

I treat all general ear, nose and throat conditions. I perform surgical procedures including tonsillectomy, grommets, endoscopic sinus surgery, septoplasty and polypectomy. I specialise in complex Head and Neck conditions including Thyroid and Voice problems. I treat children in my NHS and private practice.

My NHS and private practice are similar. I have performed over 1,000 adenoid and tonsillectomy operations. I have carried out over five hundred complex head and neck procedures and over five hundred major rhinology procedures FESS, polypectomy and septoplasty. I perform forty thyroid/parathyroid procedures per year, my outcome data is recorded on the BAETS database.

I am the Chair of the Head and Neck Essex Cancer Network.
