About me

As a highly respected Consultant ENT Surgeon at the esteemed Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals, I bring a wealth of international experience to the treatment of a wide range of rhinological conditions, with a particular focus on rhinoplasty, snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, rhinitis and rhinosinusitis, sinonasal cancer, and advanced skull base surgery. My postgraduate education was further enhanced by a year-long fellowship in rhinology and facial plastics at St George's University Hospital in London, followed by a fellowship in anterior skull base surgery at the Academic Medical Centre University Hospital in Amsterdam.

In addition to my work within the NHS, I maintain a private practice at London Bridge Hospital and HCA The Shard, where I am a proud member of the HCA Head and Neck team treating sinonasal malignancies. I am deeply committed to research and education, and have made notable contributions as a co-author of SurgTech and as a frequent speaker at international conferences. I am also a valued member of the executive board of the European Rhinologic Society and serve as the Chair of the Education Committee, where I play a critical role in advancing the knowledge and skills of my colleagues through innovative educational initiatives.

My passion for minimally invasive techniques in rhinology has led me to explore the potential of cutting-edge technologies, including the application of robotic surgery in the field of skull base surgery. In the management of snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea, I am a strong advocate of ExciteOSA, a minimally invasive procedure that offers high levels of patient safety and satisfaction. I believe in offering a range of treatment options to my patients and am dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for their health and well-being.

My PhD research on "rhinitis in athletes" has earned numerous academic awards and recognition. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I was one of the first researchers worldwide to describe the loss of smell in patients and made significant contributions to the tracheostomy service, as evidenced by my numerous published articles on the subject.

As a former professional triathlete, I bring a unique perspective to my work, characterized by a drive for excellence and a commitment to fairness, which was reflected in the Fair Play Prize awarded by the Olympic Committee.

My background as a former professional triathlete has instilled in me a passion for perfectionism and taught me a principle of fair play. These personal attributes were reflected in Fair Play prize awarded by the Olympic Committee.
