A/Prof Catherine Sinclair

ENT Surgeon

I am a Head and Neck Surgeon and Laryngologist, dual board certified in Australasia and North America. My sub-specialty interests are thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, thyroid radio frequency ablation, parathyroid diseases, salivary neoplasms, neck masses and laryngology. I also perform my own diagnostic ultrasounds in office biopsies.

I completed dual fellowships in head and neck surgery and laryngology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the New York Center for Voice and Swallowing, respectively. I subsequently worked as the Director of Head and Neck Surgery at Mount Sinai West in New York between 2011 and 2020 before relocating back to Melbourne, Australia in January 2021.

I have published numerous peer reviewed papers and consensus statements on thyroid disease, thyroid cancer and operative techniques during thyroid and parathyroid surgeries. I am frequently invited to speak and moderate at international conferences.

In 2016, I pioneered a new continuous neuromonitoring technique for the vagus nerve, which optimises voice preservation during thyroid surgery. In 2019, I performed the first radiofrequency thyroid nodule ablation in New York and initiated one of the first thyroid radiofrequency ablation programs in the United States. I am excited to introduce these techniques into Australia.
