I am a full time ENT Consultant with a special interest in advanced rhinology (including snoring and sleep apnoea, balloon sinuplasty) and head and neck surgery (including neck lumps, thyroid lumps and voice problems). I deal with the full range of ENT disorders including tonsillectomy, grommets, blocked ear (tubuloplasty), deviated septum (septoplasty), functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), allergy tests and allergic rhinitis, snoreplasty, parotidectomy, hearing loss, tinnitus and head and neck cancer. I am the clinical lead for sleep apnoea, head and neck cancer and parathyroid surgery in my NHS hospital. My research interests include balloon tubuloplasty for Eustachian tube dysfunction, biomarkers for thyroid disorders and sleep disorders after cancer treatment.
