Personal Profile

I am a Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon at the Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough. I also lead the Multidisciplinary Balance Team at the Royal London Hospital. I hold two Professorships, a visiting Chair in Otorhinolaryngology, and another in Medical Innovation.

I studied Medicine at University College London and graduated in 1995. Whilst at University College London I was awarded both the Maurice Elton prize in Oncology and the FMR Walshe prize in Neurology.

I completed my Basic Surgical Training at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals in London and was awarded membership to the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1999. I completed a Diploma in Laryngology and Otology in 2000 and secured a Higher Surgical training post on the South Thames Rotation.

As part of my training I also spent a year as a Fellow at the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. I was awarded the FRCS in Otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery in 2006 and was awarded the certificate of surgical training in 2007.

I have a specialist interest in Dizziness and Vertigo. I was previously a Consultant ENT surgeon at Medway Maritime Hospital where I initiated a 'One-Stop' balance service. I was also a Consultant at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals where my primary role was as a Consultant on the Multidisciplinary Balance Team. This balance clinic was featured on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Case Notes’ programme, describing the latest diagnosis and treatment of dizziness and balance problems.

I undertake medical research and in recent years developed a surgical procedure for cholesteatoma (chronic ear disease) that maintains functional hearing. I have also developed a method of treating Meniere’s Disease that may eventually lead to a potential cure.
