What Can I Help With?
I am an Ear Nose & Throat surgeon, specialising in ear and hearing problems for adults and children.
With treatments and technologies constantly advancing, I believe that sub-specialising in a smaller area within ENT is the best way of offering the best, up-to-date and more technically challenging options available. By choosing to focus on ear and hearing problems, I am 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.
Whilst ear and hearing problems are my super-specialist area, I am fully qualified to assess and treat a full range of ENT conditions. If after consultation and medical treatment, any nose or throat surgery is required, I offer the benefit of recommending the best available surgeon for your particular condition from a wide network of colleagues in the ENT world. This approach mirrors my busy NHS practice in which I receive referrals from other ENT consultants regionally and nationally.
