Mr San Sunkaraneni is a Fellowship-trained Consultant ENT surgeon, and was appointed to the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford, UK in 2012.
He graduated from Guy's and St Thomas's Medical School, London. During his medical school training, he spent a year undertaking a Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Anatomy, where his interest in the anatomy and surgery of the head and neck region began.
He underwent his general ENT training at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge and in the Wessex Deanery on the south coast of England. He was then selected from a highly competitive international field to spend a year undergoing Fellowship training at the renowned St Paul’s Sinus Centre, Vancouver, Canada.
During this year, he gained substantial experience in rhinology, particularly computer assisted sinus surgery (CASS) and endoscopic (keyhole) skull base surgery, including the removal of sinonasal and brain tumours through the nose.
He was awarded the 2010 Travelling Prize by the Royal Society of Medicine, and in the same year was awarded the Travelling Fellowship by the British Rhinological Society.
Mr Sunkaraneni has been recognised and accredited specialist status by the specialist advisory committee in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery and the General Medical Council.
With research interests in nasal and sinus disease, Mr Sunkaraneni is a Principal Investigator involved in a national multi-centre NIHR funded research programme, looking at the causes of sinusitis and new treatments for it. He peer reviews research papers for scientific journals and has lectured at major conferences in the UK and North America.
Mr Sunkaraneni is the Course Director of the Guildford Sinus and Skull Base Surgery Course, which he set up in 2013. With an active interest in medical education, he also teaches on other surgical courses in the UK and overseas.
