I am an experienced, fellowship trained ENT consultant for both adult and paediatric patients. My NHS post is at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital where I manage all forms of ENT problems. My areas of specialist interest are nasal reconstruction for both functional and cosmetic problems, chronic sinus disease and paediatric ENT. I run specialist clinics for all these areas and I am also the lead surgeon for cancers of the nose and sinuses in our hospital.
My private practice is based at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, The Royal Free Hospital Private Patients Unit (Hampstead and Hadley Wood Sites), the Wellington Hospital and Diagnostic Centres and The London Clinic. Providing excellence in care for all patients is what I strive for. Keeping in touch with all current treatments and guidelines helps me to achieve this. Hopefully patients always feel that I have tried my best for them.

Sinusitis; endoscopic sinus surgery; balloon sinus surgery; nasal blockage; septorhinoplasty; rhinoplasty; cosmetic nasal surgery; deviated nasal septum; paediatric ENT; snoring; tonsillitis; hearing loss; voice problems; facial plastic surgery; cancer; grommets; balance; vertigo
