Mr Hassan Elhassan
Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon - with interest in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
MBBS, BSc, DO-HNS, FRCS
"Spire Hospitals have provided me with the specialist equipment that I need to treat my patients with chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps. My patients are delighted with the treatment received."
I am a specialist in sinus surgery and nasal surgery. I am particularly skilled at helping patients with sinusitis, nasal polyps, blocked noses and breathing problems. I have developed specialist surgical skills and techniques by training and visiting the best centres of sinus surgery excellence in the world.
I have performed more than 3,000 ENT operations, with the majority of these being nose and sinus surgeries.
I am a local ENT surgeon, having attended Barts London Medical School, University of London, and surgical training in London, the Southeast and South Wales. I received fellowship training in Sydney Australia and have attended nose and sinus centres of excellence in Zurich, Varese and Accra.
I offer all rhinology procedures in my NHS practice and am dedicated to getting the best outcomes for my patients whilst using the best medical technology to achieve this. I also offer a general adult and paediatric ENT practice for most conditions.
My NHS practice is based Homerton University Hospital and my private practice is via telephone or video consultation, as well as at London Spire East Hospital.
I am a keen clinical teacher and has chaired the Junior branch of the Association for the Study of Medical Education and was awarded University colours for his work on the undergraduate curriculum. I organised a national conference on medical education and convened the first cadaveric sinus surgery dissection course in Wales.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Hassan Elhassan at Spire include:
Ear Nose and Throat (ENT)
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire London East Hospital.

I was appointed Deputy Clinical Director for ENT in London region. I contributed to the design of the High Volume Low Capacity ENT pathways as part of the Elective Recovery Program. I also co-authored the unified consent forms for the ENT pathway. Part of my remit has involved co-ordinating the Mutual Aid ENT pathway in North East London where elective surgery patients are offered treatment in the neighbouring trusts.
