About me

After registrar and senior registrar training at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London I was appointed Consultant ENT surgeon at Bart’s in 1989. In 1992 I moved to the coast as Consultant ENT surgeon at Southend Hospital NHS Trust, where I practice as a rhinologist and otologist. I retired from full time nhs work in July 21015 but carry out operating sessions ad hoc.

I provide a service in extended applications in rhinology including endoscopic surgery of the sinuses and orbit/lacrimal system and closed and open structure surgery for functional nasal deformity. I do not carry out cosmetic surgery.

I am on the teaching faculty of the national courses in endoscopic sinus anatomy and surgery and in advanced skills in open structure Rhinoplasty in Dundee. I am also on the teaching faculty of the Bristol course in endoscopic sinus anatomy and surgery.

I also provide a service in otology e.g. grommets, myringoplasty / tympanoplasty.

We regularly audit our results against published national and international standards.
