About me

Mr Sanjay Verma completed his medical training from Cambridge and after award of a coveted TWJ fellowship carried out a year in advanced otology and paediatric ENT surgery under Professor John Rutka at the Toronto General Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children. It was here that he gained the latest knowledge and skills in the diagnosis and treatment of hearing and balance disorders, as well as children’s ENT problems. In 2012, Mr Verma was invited to the renowned Causse clinic in Beziers, France, where he gained further experience in laser ear and hearing implant surgery, as well as surgery for bat ears in children. He has subsequently introduced laser ear surgery (for cholesteatoma and stapedectomy) and set up the Implantable Hearing Device/ BAHA MDT clinic in Leeds.

Mr Verma is also interested in advanced nasal and sinus surgery. He has developed a subspecialist interest in endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and was the first to perform Balloon Sinuplasty at the Nuffield Leeds hospital. He also performs surgery to reshape the nose and its passages (septorhinoplasty), to improve breathing, snoring and cosmetic appearance.

As an ENT consultant at the Leeds General Infirmary and Wharfedale General Hospital in Otley, Mr Verma has a dedicated general adult and paediatric NHS practise, with a special interest in ear, nose, and sinus conditions.

He is committed to training the next generation of surgeons. As the Royal College of Surgeons Tutor for Leeds General Infirmary, Mr Verma oversaw the delivery and standards of surgical training throughout the Trust. As Clinical Governance Lead he introduced a strong governance framework to the ENT department at Leeds, and is presently Educational Lead for the Head and Neck directorate.
