Mr Roland Hettige

Consultant Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeon


"The Spire Hospital's commitment to excellence really ensures my patients get the very best of specialist care in a timely manner."

Specialises in

I am a fully trained Ear, Nose & Throat consultant surgeon. I specialise in Rhinology which encompasses Rhinoplasty (functional due to nasal blockage and purely cosmetic); blocked and runny noses; nasal allergy; sinus problems and polyps; loss of smell; sinus headaches; chronic ear aches; snoring and sleep apnoea. I am also fully trained in general ENT and Children and Young Person's ENT conditions.

I have acquired key specialist surgical skills having operated: - 250+ Rhinoplasties: external and closed (no scar); functional and cosmetic; primary and revisions; with grafting and reconstruction with donor rib cartilage (Tutoplast) - 750+ Sinuses: advanced polyps and extended procedures, including Frontal and Sinus Balloon Dilations - 400+ Nasal Airway Septal straightening procedures: including primary and revisions - 750+ Tonsil and Adenoid procedures: adults and paediatrics; modern techniques (Coblation); tonsillotomy and tonsillectomy; for recurrent tonsillitis and obstructive sleep apnoea.

I have spent the last 10 years gaining super-specialist expertise in advanced nasal and sinus surgery both in London and Oxford. When I took up my current consultant post at Wexham Park Hospital I became the lead surgeon responsible for the Rhinology service. I routinely accept referrals from other colleagues to perform difficult and revision surgery and my unique skills and experience now attract referrals throughout Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and the London boroughs.

I am on the Clinical Effectiveness and Audit Committee (CEAC) for the local NHS Trust. I am also on the executive panel for SFOUK (Student and Foundation Otolaryngology UK), a National Body designed at promoting ENT as a career and educating junior doctors and medical students, and also on the executive committee of the electronic data-management system of the Trust.

In addition to my clinical work, I was proud to be part of the faculty of this years hugely successful European Rhinological Conference in London.

I am a keen footballer and tennis player and although surgery is my passion, I still make time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life such as baking and spending time with my young family.
