I have been a Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon for 19 years. I enjoy the role, and the multi-faceted nature of the specialty. I specialise in laser surgery for tonsillectomy, nose unblocking, snoring, sleep apnoea, head and neck cancer and facial plastic surgery. I particularly specialise in tonsil problems, tonsillitis, tonsil stones, bad breath etc, plus nose blockage due to allergy or physical obstruction.

To date I have performed over 1,200 laser tonsillectomies under local or general anaesthetic, 800 septoplasties for nose unblocking. I've performed 800 neck tumour operations and over 80 laryngeal cancer laser resections. I have performed over 16,000 flexible upper airway examinations using endoscopes in clinic.

I have previously been Associate Clinical Director at Barts Hospital London.

Professional leadership

I am the ENT representative for the MAC at The London Independent Hospital, London.

Barts Health NHS Trust.

I greatly enjoy working, nearly as much as I enjoy playing. I'm a season ticket holder at Chelsea FC, I have five children and like to get outside as much as possible.

I'm most likely to say: 'Lets go camping for the weekend and take the BBQ'. And I'm least likely to say: 'It looks cold outside let's watch telly'.
