Joseph Manjaly is a Consultant Otologist, Auditory Implant & ENT Surgeon, specialising in ear and hearing problems for adults and children.
His practice stands out in that he has solely chosen to focus on ear and hearing problems with the benefit of being able to offer advanced specialist surgical skills and a full range of hearing rehabilitation options beyond what is typically available in a standard ENT clinic. He is fellowship-trained in otology and auditory implant surgery and takes pride in effectively treating patients with hearing loss, ear discharge, discomfort, tinnitus and dizziness. He has a busy NHS practice at the world-leading Royal National ENT Hospital in Central London, part of University College Hospitals NHS Trust. He is also a core member of the Microtia & Craniofacial multidisciplinary team based at the Royal Free Hospital, London.
He regularly undertakes operations that include tympanoplasty for ear drum retractions & perforations, ossiculoplasty using microscopic techniques and prostheses, stapedectomy for otosclerosis, and tympanomastoid surgery for cholesteatoma. He is rare in routinely offering middle ear surgeries under local anaesthetic which allows a quicker recovery and the ability to monitor hearing during surgery. As a hearing implant surgeon he performs Cochlear implantation, Bone Conduction implantation and Active Middle ear implantation. As part of this full range of treatment options he advises on when hearing aids are most suitable and thus provides the maximum number of options for hearing rehabilitation whatever the degree of hearing loss.
After schooling at Eastbourne College in Sussex & King Edward’s School Birmingham, Joe’s medical career began at the University of Bristol where he qualified in 2008. He subsequently earned a position on the North Thames ENT Higher Surgical Training Programme after ranking amongst the highest trainees in the country. Training in all aspects of ENT surgery followed at units including London North West University NHS Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Imperial College NHS Trust and the Royal National Throat Nose & Ear Hospital. After being awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS-ORLHNS), he successfully interviewed for the internationally-renowned fellowship in Otology & Implant surgery at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust where he started to further focus his skills in the area of hearing restoration surgery for children & adults.
Whilst ear and hearing problems are Joe’s super-specialist area, he has more than 10 years NHS experience treating a full range of ENT conditions, including blocked noses and sore throats. If after consultation and medical treatment it is recommended that any nose or throat surgery is required, Joe offers the benefit of recommending the best available colleague for your particular condition from a wide personal network in the ENT world.
In addition to his clinical work, Joe makes an active contribution to ENT in the UK and beyond. He has presented research internationally and is an Honorary Clinical Associate Professor at the UCL Ear Institute. He leads an otology strategy group that drives excellence within research, education and service development in ear and hearing surgery at the Royal National ENT Hospital. He has a long-held interest in teaching and training regionally & nationally. He is the author of the popular trainee textbooks 'ENT OSCEs' and 'Advanced ENT Training', both published by CRC press. He has also held a number of national positions, including as council member for the British Society of Otology and the Royal Society of Medicine Otology Section.
Joe is a keen musician and performs in a function band semi-professionally around the country. He understands the hearing needs of musicians. A healthy life outside medicine is evident in Joe’s personable nature. He is a keen sports supporter and a dedicated husband and father.

To quote an example:
"After almost 20 years with otosclerosis in my left ear, I was excited to discover the stapedectomy procedure made possible by the work of Mr Joseph Manjaly at UCLH. From the moment I met Mr Manjaly I was impressed by his helpful and professional approach. The life changing surgery under sedation rather than a general anaesthetic was painless and recovery went smoothly. The ultimate reward was getting my hearing back to an extremely good level and I now hear absolutely normally. To say that I'm thrilled would be an understatement and I highly recommend this form of procedure to anybody in a similar situation."
I audit and reflect on all my surgical outcomes on an annual basis.
