About me

Mr Sipaul is a widely experienced Consultant Ear, Nose & Throat (E.N.T.) Surgeon. He has been a consultant at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust since 2014. He is also a visiting consultant at Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester. He has full registration with General Medical Council (GMC) (registration number: 5195961) and is a member of the British Medical Association. He is up-to-date with his 5-year cycle revalidation with GMC. Apart from general E.N.T. problems and surgeries, his other interest is in the diagnosis and management of head & neck cancer. He is also part of a handful of surgeons in the region who perform sialendoscopy to relieve/reduce obstruction of salivary gland ducts either from stone/s or narrowing. This can help to avoid excision of the salivary gland itself. More often than not, he is able to reassure patients with vague throat symptoms that there is no concerning pathology in a single clinic visit by performing flexible naso-pharyngo-laryngoscopy. He was the first surgeon in the world to devise, develop and describe a particular type of skin flap in front of the ear to reconstruct cutaneous defect in and around the opening of the ear canal. Together with his Specialist Registrar at that time, he published the paper entitled �A one-stage method for external auditory canal reconstruction: the Wessex pre-auricular flap� in the European Annals of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck diseases journal (Aug 2022).
Mr Sipaul has been described by patients and colleagues as a caring, compassionate and consummate clinician.

1. Email to Mr David French (Chief Executive of University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust) from a patient (Mrs E.K) on 24th June 2023: �On the 12th of May in the afternoon I was admitted to the day surgical unit at Southampton Hospital. Unfortunately I can only recall the name of the surgeon, Mr Fabian Sipaul, to whom I am truly grateful to for the skilful way he removed a benign tumour from my neck. The scar is so discreet and the side effects from the surgery minimal.�
2. Email to Patient Support Services at University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust from a patient (Mrs LC) on 16th Oct 2022: �October 13th was my throat lazer surgery to treat leukoplakia. My consultant Mr Fabian Sipaul is my current Hero. Truthful and reassuring, concerned, and a superb surgeon, just what was needed.�
3. iWantGreatCare website: �I was impressed with the care and treatment given to me by Mr Sipaul recently. He was very approachable and professional and came to see me after my neck operation, before I was discharged from hospital. He explained what he did and when I would be seeing him again for a review and biopsy results. (Written by a patient at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust on 3rd March 2019.)

He completed medical school at University College Cork, Ireland in 1997 with MB BCh BAO & BMedSci. His basic surgical training took place in East Anglia at James Paget Hospital followed by E.N.T. at Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. Further E.N.T. training and a year of research was in Bristol. The research grant was an award from Royal College of Surgeons, England (Augustus Newman Foundation). He was successful in obtaining entry into the highly competitive Severn Deanery Otolaryngology Specialist Registrar (SpR) Training programme which took 6 years at various hospitals in Bristol, Gloucester and Bath. He obtained his FRCS (ORL-HNS) (Fellowship Royal College of Surgeons in Oto-Rhino-Laryngology & Head and Neck Surgery) before embarking on a 2-years overseas fellowship as additional specialist training. The first was in Christchurch, New Zealand primarily in Head & Neck Surgery and the second in Adelaide, Australia mainly in Advanced Rhinology & Anterior Skull Base and some Head & Neck Surgery.
