Mr Derrick Siau
Consultant ENT Surgeon
MA MB BChir FRCS (ORL - HNS)
I am a UK trained ear, nose and throat surgeon and graduated from the university of Cambridge. I treat a wide range of ENT conditions and believe in conservative management ahead of surgery. I focus on patients' choice and individual circumstances in formulating a holistic and personal treatment plan for every patient based on both the disease itself and my patient's circumstances.
As a medical student, I developed an interest in surgery and spent time at the Kuching and Miri General Hospitals in Borneo, where I developed an interest in ear, nose and throat surgery. I commenced my surgical training in Manchester, working at the Manchester Royal Infirmary. I was then appointed to the ENT training programme in Manchester where I was an ENT registrar from 2008 - 2014. In 2014 I devoted six months in advanced rhinology training under the auspices Mr John de Carpentier. I was able to further develop my expertise in the surgical treatment of nose allergies, sinus disease, tear duct obstruction and nasal deformities.
In June 2014 I was appointed as a consultant at both Macclesfield District General Hospital and University Hospitals of South Manchester. During this period, I helped develop and reorganise the ENT services at Macclesfield District Hospital, as well as becoming heavily involved in teaching and service development. I currently manage both general adult and paediatric ENT conditions as well as specialist clinics in balance disorders and otology.
I offer a Sleep and Snoring Clinic, taking a multidisciplinary approach to the management and treatment of sleep and snoring disorders with Dr Ari Manuel, Respiratory, Sleep and Ventilation Consultant. This specialist clinic provides patients with a personalised treatment plan and supports with a wide range of diagnostics through to treatments.
I have been recognised and accredited specialist status by the specialist advisory committee in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery and the General Medical Council. My certificate of completion of training (CCT) was awarded in August 2014.
I am passionate about teaching and am heavily involved with Edge Hill University where I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer for the post-graduate MSc course. I also participate in regular audits and regularly evaluate the outcome of any surgery performed on my patients. I continuously aspire to provide high quality, safe healthcare centred on the individual patient.
