I am an ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon with fellowship training in rhinology, anterior skull base and facial plastic surgery. I have a special interest in treating conditions of the nose and sinuses, from nasal obstruction and sinusitis to benign and malignant tumours. The management of hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia, a genetic condition associated with frequent nosebleeds, is another special interest. In addition, I treat all general adult and paediatric ENT conditions and work closely with allergists and respiratory physicians to manage patients with complex upper and lower airway diseases. I have extensive experience in both minimally invasive endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery as well as open techniques. I have expertise in both functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery and am an international consultant for the Harley Street Nose Clinic.
I studied medicine at Cambridge University and trained at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London, graduating in 1999. This was followed by further specialist training in otolaryngology head and neck surgery in London, gaining my Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2010. I completed additional subspecialty fellowship training with rhinology, skull base and facial plastic surgery fellowships in Brisbane and London from 2011 – 2014. After relocating to Melbourne in 2014 I took up the post of Consultant ENT Surgeon/Rhinologist at Monash Health, and gained Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2016. I am a member of the Australian Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, the Australia and New Zealand Rhinologic Society, the Australasian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and the European Rhinologic Society. I am a clinical associate professor at Monash University and through my public appointment I run a specialist rhinology clinic at Monash Health.
Research is a keen interest and I have published extensively in scientific literature and also authored a number of book chapters in my areas of expertise. I am currently an investigator in a number of local, national and international clinical trials in the field of ENT.
