Henry has been a substantive NHS and Private Consultant ENT Surgeon since 2004. He offers a comprehensive adult and children's ENT service but has specialist expertise in nose and sinus problems (Rhinology) and Nasal Plastic cosmetic and nasal airway reconstructive surgery (Rhinoplasty).
Following diagnosis of a collapsed nasal passage which had led to seriously disturbed sleep owing to the inability to breathe properly, I was referred to Mr Sharp who listened with interest to what I had to say. He then explained what could be done to rectify the situation and this would involve surgery inside the nose to correct the collapsed (and also misaligned) passage and restore the ability to breathe normally once again. This operation is known as a septoplasty. I was put on the waiting list and on the 30th April 2018 admitted to Kent and Canterbury Hospital to undergo the procedure. Mr Sharp and his team met with me and I underwent the surgery under general anaesthetic. After the operation I was advised that the procedure had gone well and discharged the same day. I was told that recovery would be rather slow for the next couple of weeks but would slowly improve after this. Six weeks after the operation, I can confirm that my life has been transformed. I am now breathing fully through both nostrils and am beginning to achieve sustained periods of sleep as things improve. I attended a review with Mr Sharp and he was very pleased with my progress. I cannot thank Mr Sharp and his team enough. The quality of care received coupled with the expertise of Mr Sharp cannot be faulted and I remain indebted to them. Thank you all so much. Mike Thompson
