I practice as a general ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon seeing both adult and paediatric patients throughout hospitals in Worcestershire where I have been a consultant since 2003. Over this time I have developed a special interest in facial plastic surgery. This means that I see patients with lesions of the face and neck which are benign but generally cancerous working closely with the dermatologists who refer patients to me for treatment. Facial plastic surgery also involves cosmetic surgery of the ear and nose in which I also have an interest. I'm a member of both European and UK national facial plastic learned societies which ensures that I'm kept up to date with modern practice.
