Mr Darryl Coombes

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon


Specialises in

I aim to provide the highest quality level of care for all my patients. From the initial inquiry, the consultation, treatment and follow-up each patient is treated with respect, discretion and honesty. I am known amongst my peers and patients for my outstanding surgical skills, artistic eye and my holistic friendly approach to my practice. Most importantly, I strive to provide clear communication throughout the process by offering an accurate and realistic assessment of the treatment with your safety and wellbeing in mind.

I am qualified in both dentistry and medicine at King’s College, University of London in 1993 and 2000 respectively. I obtained my specialist training in oral and facial plastic surgery at major UK NHS centres throughout England, including the world renowned Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, where I was appointed as a consultant in 2008. I have broad experience in major reconstructive facial surgery for trauma and cancer and I am also a designated member of the Multidisciplinary Skin Cancer team at the Queen Victoria Hospital.

I have developed an international reputation in the field of facial, head and neck plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery worldwide. I perform and train other surgeons on a wide range of specialties including rhinoplasty and head and neck skin cancer.

In 2011, I received a prestigious Knighthood of the Order of St John in Malta – which affords me the title Chevalier for the ground-breaking operations I performed on the Mediterranean island, surgeries from which many Maltese and other European doctors had shied away. Along with my international influence, I continue to lecture and train next generation surgeons at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead on advanced facial plastic surgeries.
