About me

I endeavour to provide the best possible clinical care to all patients be it in the private sector or in my clinical NHS practice.
I qualified at Delhi, India in 1987 with overseas experience working in India and Bahrain. I have done my postgraduate surgical training in ENT surgery at Yorkshire deanery where I developed a sub speciality interest in Paediatric Otolaryngology.
I did focussed paediatric ENT training at Sheffield Children's Hospital and a year’s clinical fellowship at Evelina Children's Hospital (part of Guys and St Thomas Hospital), London where I gained valuable experience in airway reconstructive surgery in children. I have also done a Rhinology fellowship with world renowned FESS surgeon, Prof Stammberger in Austria.
I have conducted research to study the hearing loss with age in mice, for which I was awarded an M Phil degree from Keele University in 2006. I have over twenty five publications in the field of ENT.
I am employed as a Consultant ENT Surgeon at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, the largest children's Hospital in the UK. I am part of the regional Cleft team providing hearing surgery for children with cleft palate serving the population of the Northwest and North Wales.
I am the clinical director for ENT and Audiology at the hospital. I am an examiner for ENT and MRCS trainees at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and undergraduate students of Liverpool University.
My practice involves specialised airway assessment and treatment of children with complex breathing disorders. My interests lie in diagnosing, investigating and treatment of children with sore throats, hearing problems and sleep disorders arising from enlarged tonsil and adenoids. I am the lead surgeon for provision of surgical treatment of drooling in children.
Specialist clinics (Alder Hey Hospital, Liverpool):
• Joint Allergy ENT clinic with Consultant Paediatric Allergist
• Complex Airway Clinic with Consultant Paediatric Long term ventilation and Respiratory medicine
I have developed a rapid response team with colleagues from Alder Hey Hospital and Liverpool Women’s Hospital to assist babies born with potential airway problems (EXIT procedures).
