I would like to introduce myself as an ENT Consultant based at St George's University Hospital.  Previously, I had been a Consultant in Portsmouth and Chichester, and was invited to London to help develop an Academic Department of ENT and Head & Neck surgery. Currently, I am working closely with the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research.


I have gained a wide experience in treating all aspects of general adult and paediatric ear, nose and throat disorders, including ear & hearing problems, nasal and sinus problems. 


My specialist interest is in Head & Neck surgery and Thyroid & Parathyroid Surgery, having completed an Advanced Fellowship in Endocrine and Head & Neck Surgery at the Toronto General Hospital and the Mount Sinai Hospital.


I am currently a specialist advisor for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), and also one of the few surgeons in the UK who routinely performs minimally-invasive 'key-hole' thyroid and parathyroid surgery, having trained under the pioneers of this technique; Professor David Terris (USA) and Professor Paulo Miccoli (Italy).

Current professional roles:
•    Hon. Senior Lecturer, St George’s University of London.
•    Hon. Professor, Faculty of Science, University of Portsmouth.
•    Hon. Senior Lecturer in Surgery, CRUK Cancer Centre, University of Southampton.
•    National Specialty Research Lead for Endocrine Surgery, Royal College of Surgeons of England.
•    National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Head & Neck Cancer CSG SLT Subgroup Committee.
•    Specialist Advisor, Interventional Procedures, National Institute for Health & Care.
