Professional profile

I trained in ear, nose and throat surgery in Oxford and Manchester. In 1995 I undertook a fellowship at the Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery department, University of Illinois, Chicago, and completed my doctorate thesis a year later. In 1999 I was appointed as a Consultant ENT Surgeon at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, before returning as a Consultant to the University Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at the Manchester Royal Infirmary in January 2004.

I specialise in Nasal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, including rhinoplasty.

I am the current President of the ENT Facial Plastic Surgery Society.

I am active in teaching and training and I am a faculty member of several national and international courses reflecting my expertise in nasal plastic surgery.

I am a member of the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery. I am also a member of The British Assocation of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (BAAPS), one of only four ENT surgeons who is a member of this Association and the only one outside of the South of England.

In 2014 I was featured in Tatler's Cosmetic Surgery Guide as "Best for Noses".
