Profile

I am a Consultant ENT Surgeon in Manchester practising all aspects of adult and paediatric ENT. My particular areas of interest are the surgical management of benign and malignant head and neck diseases, including thyroid and salivary gland surgery, as well as adult airway and voice surgery.

My NHS practice is based at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, The Christie and in East Cheshire (Macclesfield).

 

After completing medical school in Sheffield with distinction I completed my surgical training in and around Manchester. To complete my training I was awarded a surgical fellowship at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London, where I was trained by senior surgeons from ENT, Maxillofacial and Plastic Surgery in advanced head and neck, facial plastic and airway surgery.
