Professional profile

I am a revered and internationally respected ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon. With a full remit of expertise for both complex and restorative adult and paediatric, ENT conditions. I am Clinical Lead for ear, nose, throat services and paediatric surgery for the surgical division at Barking Havering Redbridge NHS Trust.

I have over 20 years of experience treating children with various ENT conditions including; tonsillitis, glue ear, sleep apnoea and nasal obstruction. I also offer the new coblation tonsil procedure, which is less painful and helps in quicker recovery. I am the preferred choice ENT surgeon for parents.

After specialised training in the UK, I was awarded a Fellowship (FRCS) from the Royal College of Surgeons and have also completed a postgraduate training course in India for my master’s degree. I regularly publish results from international and UK research. I am a frequent lecturer on the worldwide stage.

Further to advanced training from a leading London teaching hospital, I perform complex nose (including rhinoplasty) procedures. I take referrals for patients having symptoms with nasal obstruction and sinus symptoms. I offer advanced day case procedures for these patients, which includes endoscopic sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty.

Following advanced training from University College London, I am also a specialist for voice and swallowing disorders. Having revised tracheostomy guidelines for the NHS Trust, I am a tutor for the ‘Front and Neck Access Course’ and also introduced the ‘Airway Alert Pathway’ concept.

My significant experience also includes performing more than 500 cases of cholesteatoma, LASER in-ear surgery which minimises discomfort and facilitates a faster recovery. I have performed more than 1,000 ear surgery procedures including ear drum perforation repair with no facial palsy complications. Other specific procedures include stapes surgery for patients with otosclerosis. I have pioneered the use of Narrow Band Imaging in cholesteatoma surgery.

Ensuring that all patients are afforded time, care and understanding for their medical problems, I am patient and prefer to personally address all queries from patients and their families. This facilitates a scenario of trust and confidence where patients feel in control and confident of their care and treatment.
