About me

Mr Salam has over 25 years experience as a consultant ENT surgeon in both NHS and Private sector. He has special expertise in nasal surgery, endoscopic sinus surgery and nasal allergy. He has performed over 2000 endoscopic sinus surgery procedures. He has written several publications on this type of surgery in peer review journals. His results were published at the RCS National Sino-Nasal Audit and were among the top 10 surgeons in the UK. He is the first surgeon in East anglia to perform the non-invasive "Balloon Sinoplasty" technique for sinus disease. This work was presented at home and abroad.

Mr Salam is the first surgeon in the UK to introduce the "Balloon Tuboplasty Dilatation" technique for Eustachian tube dysfunction. He published his work in international journals and presented it in national and international conferences. His work showed the efficacy of this technique in dealing with such a difficult problem.

Mr Salam is currently doing private ENT work only at the "Nuffield Hospital Ipswich" after retiring from his post in the NHS in 2023. He was in charge of the Voice clinic at Ipswich Hospital HNS Trust where he treated patients with voice disorders in conjunction with speech therapists. He was also in charge of the facial plastic clinic for treatment of facial skin lesions.

Mr Salam was the Audit lead for ENT and is interested in auditing all his surgical results and clinical practice. He also used this forum for teaching and training junior doctors. He has yearly appraisal of his clinical practice and up to date revalidation through the GMC. He is keen to have regular feedback from patients and staff for all aspects of his clinical and surgical practice.

Mr Salam organised and lectured in regional and national courses for endoscopic sinus surgery and other aspects of ENT surgery. He spent eight years in a senior management post as Chairman of "Special Surgery Division" in Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust where he was responsible for seven surgical specialties
