I am committed to providing the highest possible standard of care to all of my patients. My practice includes all areas of general ENT for both adults and children. I have particular expertise in problems of the nose and sinuses, snoring, voice problems, thyroid surgery, allergies and paediatric ENT. I offer advanced treatments in these areas. Treatments for sinus problems include balloon sinuplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery. A wide variety of treatments, both medical and surgical are available for snoring problems. I work in multidisciplinary teams (MDT) in many areas of my practice in order to offer the best care possible. This includes a pioneering reflux MDT in which I offer expertise on the management of throat symptoms caused by ‘silent’ reflux (laryngopharyngeal reflux). I also work in specialised teams in my paediatric practice, and thyroid cancer practice, as a member of the West Kent Thyroid Cancer MDT. I undertake both routine, and complex, revision surgery and regularly provide second opinions on challenging cases.
