Mr Max Whittaker
Consultant ENT Surgeon
MB BS, DO-HNS, FRCS, MSc
"The Spire London East team have been fantastic in providing high quality of care for my patients. The atmosphere is friendly, supportive and collaborative with a focus on the entire patient journey."
I am a Consultant ENT Surgeon treating general Ear, Nose and Throat conditions, with a specialist interest in complex Otology and balance disorders in both adults and children.
I graduated from University College London in 2003 and am a UK Otolaryngology CCT holder. I completed specialist training in London and the South East of England, and a subsequent Fellowship in Advanced Otology and Skull Base Surgery at Guy’s & St Thomas' Hospitals. I attended Observerships at the world-renowned House Institute in California, and Toronto General Hospital focusing on Endoscopic Ear Surgery, and now routinely provide minimally invasive ear surgery.
In 2018 I was appointed as Consultant ENT Surgeon at the Homerton Hospital, where I am currently Clinical lead. My practice consists of general ENT in both adults and children, with subspecialty focus in Otology.
I am a founding member of London Surgeons. This group of consultant surgeons works with the aim of providing high quality care covering all aspects of Ear, Nose and Throat surgery. The team brings together leaders in the ENT field and offers a down to earth, patient centred approach using evidence-based practice and latest advances in the field.
I have pioneered the North East London Teleotology programme. This revolutionary approach enables remote consultations conveniently timed around work and life commitments, and has proved extremely effective in reducing time to diagnosis and treatment.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Max Whittaker at Spire include:
Ear Nose and Throat (ENT)

I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife and two daughters, and I have a particular passion for rock climbing, SCUBA diving and travel.
