Mr John Phillips

Consultant ENT Surgeon


Specialises in

  • Balance disorders
  • Voice disorders
  • Hearing loss and ear conditions
  • Sinus surgery
  • Laryngoscopy investigation

I am trained in all aspects of ENT surgery, but my fellowship allowed me to gain in depth experience in treating patients with complex ear disease. I have a particular interest in patients with tinnitus and dizziness, and these two conditions are the focus of much of my research.

I am a Consultant ENT Surgeon at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Cromer and District Hospital. I initially trained at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London and was awarded a degree in Neuroscience at University College London. I then took up my consultant position in Norwich after completing a fellowship in Otology and Neurotology at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, Canada. During my fellowship I spent a small period of time at British Columbia Childrens Hospital.
