Mr Kelly was amazing from start to finish looking after my little boy Fletcher when having grommitts and addanoids removing. From the consulation where he made fletcher and myself feel very comfortable, having fun with fletcher etc. He responded to emails very prompt whenever I had a question. The operation went very smooth, Mr kelly being there every step of the way and with the follow up. Can't thank him enough.

He was very easy to talk to and really listened to my concerns. Made sure I understood everything he was telling me. Followed it up with a letter to explain again all he had told me and told me to phone , write or email him if I had any questions, he couldn’t have done more , excellent care !

I was delighted with my consultation with Mr Kelly. He was personable and empathetic as well as being an expert in his field. I had sudden onset tinnitus at the beginning of lockdown and was finding it difficult to understand and manage my symptoms. Mr Kelly listened carefully as I described the tinnitus and he examined my ears. From this he was able to determine the cause and how to alleviate the symptoms. I cannot thank him enough.

Response from Mr Gerard Kelly

Thank you for your kind words. Usually tinnitus is a noise heard from activity in the inner ear, usually where there is an inner ear (or 'sensorineural') hearing loss. This can happen with aging or noise exposure or trauma or with some medications - really lots of reasons! Tinnitus is unusual in people where hearing is normal. In tinnitus which arises from an inner ear problem, usually there is no cure, treatment relies on managing the tinnitus. Sometimes tinnitus is caused by something which can be cured (this is unusual), where there is wax and dead skin pressed on the ear drum for example, microsuction and removal of this blockage and removal of pressure on the ear drum MIGHT help! It might be worthwhile to have someone who has experience and knowledge of ears to see you, if microsuction is to be carried out in this situation (where wax might have to be pulled off the ear drum) an ENT surgeon should do this.

I am extremely happy with the tonsillectomy. Dr. Kelly took very good care of me and made me feel comfortable throughout the procedure.

Response from Mr Gerard Kelly

Thanks for your kind words, it is sometimes difficult to know how the recovery after tonsillectomy is going, the tonsil area initially will look white and red and have a debris coating! Sometimes this is mistaken for infection, but often this is not infection but normal! Recovery always has some pain, and this can be severe (I know, I have had a tonsillectomy)! I have put on my website a time lapse video of healing after tonsillectomy, so this might be useful to see if you have had or are considering this surgery (www.LeedsENT.com in the 'treatment videos' section).
