Lasers have revolutionised treatment for the most delicate parts of the body - the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT). In London, Mike Dilkes has helped pioneer use of lasers and other innovative treatments, bringing the highest standards of medical practice and the best state-of-the-art technology.
Imagine getting back home the same day as your treatment, and getting back to normal activities the very next day! That's possible with Mike Dilkes at ENT Laser Surgery, London's private ENT clinic.

Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon at a major London Teaching Hospital
In my practice, I want minimal in-patient stay, minimal complications and a happy patient. Over 95% of my private patients are treated as day-cases. My readmission rate is well below the national average: my aim is to have my patients back into normal activity as soon as possible after any operation.
Lasers have been very useful in medicine, so a lot of what I do relates to this. Laser light can be very accurately focussed and pulsed into tiny spots that treat tissue in one of the most delicate parts of the body - the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT).
Technological advances are happening all the time in medicine and the world generally. For this reason I have pioneered numerous techniques in the U.K., such as:
- intracapsular laser vapourisation tonsillectomy
- laser turbinoplasty
- photodynamic therapy for cancer
- laser mole removal
- water jet dissection
- ImmunoCAP biochip allergy testing
