I qualified in Medicine in 1985 and have been a Teaching Hospital consultant in Leeds since 1995.
My training included periods of acaedemic research studying nasal disease at the famous Common Cold and Nasal Research Center (Cardiff) and the prestigous International TWJ Fellowship at the University of California San Francisco, studying ear disease.
I have a wealth of experience with over 30 years spent practising ENT diagnosis and surgery in adults and children.
I also have a specific interest in paediatric ENT problems and deal with all the difficult referrals into Leeds. I am particularly interested in all forms of nasal / sinus surgery. What I do best however is listen and diagnose then explain the various treatment options available.
Private appointments can be booked via Spire Hospital Leeds, my secretary or via the Doctify website Doctify.co.uk/specialist/mr_lindsey_knight
