I am a Consultant Paediatric ENT surgeon with over 15 years of experience of working in both 'general' paediatric ENT and also with complex airway problems in children. I also have a practice in ear reconstruction and surgery to the outer ear.
My practice is devoted entirely to Paediatric ENT and I do not see adult patients either privately or on the NHS.
Areas of interest
Paediatric ENT. I have an interest in all aspects of paediatric ENT including ear infections, hearing loss, glue ear, tonsillitis, snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.
I have a particular interest in intracapsular tonsillectomy and chair the international training courses run in the UK to train surgeons in this technique.
My NHS practice incorporates ear reconstruction and surgery to the outer ear and I am therefore in an ideal position to offer surgery for prominent ears.
Procedures carried out:
Pinnaplasty and prominent ear surgery
