About me

My NHS practice is based at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals and I hold practising privileges at London Bridge Hospital. I am a Consultant ENT Surgeon covering the whole breadth of rhinology with a specific focus on the management of snoring, sleep disordered breathing, nasal deformities, advanced sinus surgery and skull base surgery.

My postgraduate training covered all aspects of ENT surgery, and took place in the UK, Czech Republic and the Netherlands. As a result, I have a wealth of international experience and I am fluent in English, Slovak, Czech and Dutch.

After finishing my specialty training, I undertook a year-long fellowship in rhinology & facial plastics at St George’s University Hospital, London under Mr Abbad Toma and Mr Mehmet Manisali. Following this I gained further experience in anterior skull base surgery through a fellowship at the Academic Medical Centre University Hospital in Amsterdam under Prof. Wytske Fokkens.

My professional interests align particularly with research and education. To this end I am a co-author of SurgTech (offering crowdsourced surgical training videos), a regular faculty member on various instructional courses and have presented at multiple international conferences in my field around the world. I sit on the executive board of the European Rhinologic Society and I am also frequently the responsible officer for research programmes at major international congresses. My PhD research is primarily focussed on “rhinitis in athletes” and I have written or co-authored 34 peer-reviewed scientific publications and 5 book chapters (https://goo.gl/VDbyMC). I have been awarded several academic prizes for my research, including the European Rhinologic Society travel grant and Ilorin Award of Excellence.

My background as a former professional triathlete has instilled in me a passion for perfectionism and taught me a principle of fair play. These personal attributes were reflected in Fair Play prize awarded by the Olympic Committee.
