Professional profile

Availability at Spire Hartswood: Tuesday afternoon, Thursday evening, Friday evening.

I have been a Consultant ENT Surgeon for nine years and have particular expertise in nasal and sinus surgery (including Rhinoplasty), as well as snoring and paediatric ENT. I also hold Honorary Senior Lecturer and Associate Professorship appointments at academic institutions. I practice privately at Spire Hartswood Hospital, Brentwood, Essex and Spire Roding Hospital, Redbridge, Essex.

I specialise in ENT surgery in particular with a special interest in rhinology and paediatric ENT. My main areas of expertise include cosmetic and functional septorhinoplasty surgery, of which I undertake over 100 procedures per year, as well as sinus surgery including modern, minimally invasive techniques such as balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinusitis. I am one of the few surgeons in the UK to specialise in nasal reconstruction and nasal valve surgery, including titanium breathe implants.

To date, I have undertaken nearly 1,000 rhinoplasty operations, over 1,500 paediatric ENT procedures (including tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, insertion grommets), over 50 cosmetic ear procedures (such as pinnaplasty) and approximately 250 operations for snoring assessment and treatment, carried out over a 10 year period in both the NHS and private sectors.

I have been Clinical Audit Lead for ENT at Queen’s Hospital. I am also Surgical Tutor jointly appointed between Queen’s Hospital and The Royal College of Surgeons of England.

In addition to my clinical roles I am also Honorary Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, Essex and Associate Professor of ENT at The AUC Medical School, USA.

I am also an Examiner for the DOHNS (ENT) examination for The Royal College of Surgeons of England, and am a Council Member at The Royal Society of Medicine (Laryngology & Rhinology division).

Research and Publication

During my final years of training I completed a higher research degree (MD) in the diagnosis of benign versus malignant laryngeal pathology. I also undertook further training in specialist rhinology units in Chicago and Amsterdam, following which I have developed a clinically based research interest in nasal airflow and the sensation of a blocked nose. I have over 40 publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, including several book chapters.

I regularly review ENT articles for Clinical Otolaryngology and Laryngoscope.
