Passionate about your care
I am a Consultant ENT Surgeon with a specialist interest in Endocrine surgery. I am highly trained in all aspects of Thyroid and Parathyroid surgery. I am the head of the Portmouth University Hospitals Thyroid Cancer Multidisciplinary team. I run the PHUT Joint Parathyroid Clinic with one of my Medical Endocrinology colleagues, seeing approximately 150 new patients with parathyroid disease annually. PHUT is one of the busiest Thyroid and Parathyroid Centres in the UK, performing around 250 operations per year.
My ENT training was based in the Wessex Region, working alongside a eminent Surgeons across Hampshire, Dorset and South East Wiltshire. I passed my FRCS examination in April 2016 and was awarded the Gold Medal for the highest exam score in the UK. Following my UK based training, I undertook a Fellowship in Advanced Head and Neck, Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery at the world renowned Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia, under the tutelage of Professor Ben Panizza.
Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery
I have received extensive training in all aspects of thyroid and parathyroid surgery, both in the UK and abroad. I use the latest technology in all operations, to give you the best chance of a successful outcome. I am one of only a handful of surgeons in the UK able to offer both Parathyroid Autofluoresence and Rapid Access Intraoperative PTH testing. As an ENT surgeon I am also passionate about voice outcomes after Thyroid/Parathyroid surgery, and routinely use the latest intraoperative nerve monitoring techniques in all cases.
