Mr Apostolos Karkanevatos
Consultant Otolaryngologist and Facial Plastic Surgeon
MD, MPhil, FRCS ORL-HNS
I completed my higher surgical training in the North West and have been an ENT consultant and facial plastic surgeon for 17 years working at the Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust.
My main clinical interests are facial plastics (rhinoplasty, otoplasty, head and neck skin cancer), otology (cholesteatoma surgery, ossiculoplasty), rhinology (endoscopic sinus surgery), voice pathology (benign vocal cord lesions, vocal cord palsy) and paediatrics (grommets, cholesteatoma surgery, adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy).
I am the skin cancer MDT surgical lead at the MCHT since 2006. I have been the clinical lead for the ENT department at the MCHT since 2017.
During my training I got involved in basic science research in auditory neuroscience and was awarded an MPhil by Keele University in 2001. I visited the University California San Francisco on a TWJ fellowship for 9 months and expanded my experience in otology, neurotology and facial plastics in 2003. I have published a large number of research and clinical papers in peer reviewed journals and I regularly attend meetings, courses and conferences regionally, nationally and internationally as an invited speaker.
