About me

Experienced Consultant ENT/ Head & Neck surgeon Mr Verma has developed his knowledge and surgical skills over two decades of specialist training in centres of excellence at home and abroad.

He undertook his medical training at the University of Cambridge, where he graduated with distinction. After a period of specialist ENT training in the Cambridge region, he was awarded the coveted Thomas Wickham-Jones ENT fellowship to Toronto General Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada. It was here that he gained the latest knowledge and skills in the management of adult Ear, Nose 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 experience in laser ear and hearing surgery, as well as cosmetic surgery for bat ears in children.

Mr Verma is also interested in advanced Nose 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 regularly performs surgery to reshape the nose and its passages (septorhinoplasty), to improve breathing, snoring and cosmetic appearance.

Mr Verma also regularly sees patients with Neck lumps, Voice and Swallowing problems, and is able to perform flexible nasoendoscopy in clinic to visualise the throat.

Since 2009 Mr Verma has been appointed as an ENT consultant to Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, where he has a dedicated Adult and Paediatric ENT practise. He has been instrumental in introducing laser ear surgery (for cholesteatoma and stapedectomy), implantable hearing devices and coblation tonsillectomy, and has set up the joint ENT/Neurology balance clinic and Implantable hearing device multidisciplinary clinic at the Leeds General Infirmary. He is also Clinical Lead for the Skull Base (Acoustic neuroma) ENT service.

He is committed to training the next generation of surgeons. He has been the appointed Royal College of Surgeons Tutor for Leeds, overseeing the delivery and standards of surgical training throughout the Trust. Presently, he is Educational Lead for the Head and Neck Directorate and sits on the Regional Committee for Higher training in ENT.
