Mr Anil Banerjee
Ear, Nose and Throat Consultant
MBBS, FRCS, FRCS (Gen surgery), FRCS (Ent)
Following medical qualification from Newcastle Upon Tyne University in 1987, I trained in the Midlands and Australia. I was awarded the prestigious Royal Brisbane Infirmary Otolaryngology Fellowship in 1997 and spent a year there enhancing my otological and rhinological skills in particular.
In 1999 I was appointed to the post of ENT consultant at the University Hospitals of Leicester and in 2003 I was appointed as Clinical Director for head and neck surgical services in the same hospitals.
My practice covers all aspects of ENT but I run specialist clinics for ear disease in adults and children. I have a specialist practice in snoring and use state of art equipment for diagnosis and treatment. I also run specialist clinics in balance as well as nasal allergy/sinusitis.
An audit of my allergy/sinusitis clinic in the NHS has been presented at the Royal Society of Medicine as an example of specialist practice clinics.
I have served on several national committees and am currently Vice President of the Section of Otology at the Royal Society of Medicine. I am also a council member of the British Otology Society and am currently involved in constructing a curriculum of training for future ear surgeons. I am Editor in Chief of "The Otorhinolaryngologist," the premier medical education journal for ENT Surgeons in the UK.
I have extensive experience in nose reshaping procedures also known as rhinoplasty, septoplasty and septorhinoplasty operations. These procedures are sometimes referred to as 'nosejobs'. I have performed these over the last eleven years. I regularly operate on patients with congenital or post traumatic nasal deformities who have varying degrees of functional and cosmetic nasal problems. I attend facial plastic surgery meetings in the USA each year to continue enhancing my skills in nose reshaping surgery. I also have extensive experience in ear reshaping procedures such as pinnaplasty for a variety of ear deformities sometimes referred to as 'bat ears' or 'lop ears'. I have designed an operation to reconstruct the ear canal in patients with extreme problems. I have lectured on this new procedure and others like it, in the UK and internationally.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Anil Banerjee at Spire include:
Ear Nose and Throat (ENT)
Mr Banerjee also treats Balance disorders, Hearing loss, Nasal allergy, Snoring, Obstructive sleep apnoea and Children's ENT diseases.
Spire Leicester Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

I am married with three daughters. I play the guitar and piano (both badly) and like windsurfing, squash and golf. I suffer under the load of being a Sunderland AFC supporter and therefore have had little recourse to joy since the FA Cup Final of 1973!
