About me

My clinical practice is almost entirely devoted to benign and malignant diseases of the head and neck. I am one of the few surgeons in the United Kingdom with expertise in Transoral Robotic Surgery and Transoral Laser Microsurgery for head and neck cancers. I have accrued the largest experience in Transoral Robotic Surgery in the UK. My research interests are primarily on the processes of care, decision making and functional outcomes in head and neck oncology. I have published over 170 papers, reviews and book chapters on head and neck oncology. I am chief investigator for the NIHR funded TUBE trial and contribute as co-investigator and principal investigator for several other national trials. Currently, I serve as Chairman of the research council for the British Association of Head and Neck Oncologists, and as member of the following national bodies: Head and Neck Cancer Clinical Studies Group of the National Cancer Research Institute, the Interventional Procedures Panel of the National Institute for Health Research and the ENT-UK Head & Neck Society and the Guidelines committee for the 2016 National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines on Upper aerodigestive tract cancer. I have co-edited the fourth and fifth editions of the UK National Head and Neck Cancer Multidisciplinary Management Guidelines, and also co-edit the section on "Head and Neck Disease" for the forthcoming 8th edition of Scott-Brown's Otolaryngology, the leading multi-volume multi-author textbook in the specialty in the world, planned for publication in July 2018. I am an Associate Editor for Head and Neck, the top ranked journal in the field, Senior Reviews Editor for the Journal of Laryngology and Otology, one of the oldest journals in the field (est. 1887) and serve on the editorial board for the Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology.
