About me

I have been a Specialist Children’s Ear Nose and Throat Consultant Surgeon in London for 15 years at Evelina London Children's Hospital Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Trust.

This followed 11 years ENT training, including a Children's Ear Nose and Throat Fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital and an MSc in Evidence Based Healthcare from Oxford University.

I have done over 4000 tonsillectomy operations, over 3000 adenoidectomy operations, and over 1000 grommet surgeries. I work closely with paediatricians, and am very enthusiastic about the progress children can make.

I see private patients at 61 Wimpole St, The Portland and Cromwell Hospitals.

My aim is to give a gentle, rounded approach, carefully taking into consideration the needs of each individual child and the concerns of each child’s parents.

In the past six years I have been carrying out coblation intracpasular tonsillectomy for sleep apnoea, this is less invasive technique with less pain than that previous common techniques. I have featured in The Healthy Child magazine with Dr Ranj Singh discussing this technique

With the current Covid Pandemic, I have modified my practise to make children and their families as safe as possible, for example in addition to routine measure, wearing a mask that filters my breath out, plus hand washing and disinfecting surfaces between every child seen.
