He undertook his research thesis at the University of Sussex and the Royal Society of Medicine subsequently awarded him their Otology prize for this body of work. He has published widely on a number of topics including balloon sinuplasty, rhinoplasty, facial surgery and antibiotic-associated hearing loss
