THE EAR, NOSE & THROAT EXPERT

Private medicine can be very expensive. That's why I don't  do clinics in the West End any more and have set up my own clinic called HealthHub. This is in South Central London, only a few minutes from Central London by bicycle, train or car. I can control prices here, so ENT consultations including endoscopy in clinic are £250, rather than £600+ in the West End. The same applies to insured patients, where in some Harley Street clinics the entire year's fee allowance can be expended in one consultation. I also know where the best value is for tests, scans/imaging and operations, so patients get my 23 years experience and know how, but at a reasonable price. Patients come from all over the UK, Ireland and the rest of the world.

I use lasers and other innovative treatments to help bring costs down, as the use of lasers allow treatments to be quick and uncomplicated. Common procedures include laser tonsillectomy using local anaesthetic spray, intracapsular laser tonsillectomy under general anaesthetic, laser vapourisation of facial moles and lumps,  nose unblocking septoplasty and laser turbinoplasty, plus other forms of snoring treatment such as uvulectomy or laser palatoplasty (LAUP).

Imagine going back to work straight after having your laser tonsillectomy ("lunchtime treatment") in clinic, or just a few days after nose unblocking or snoring surgery under general anaesthetic in Hospital. Almost all Hospital surgical cases are performed as day surgery - so no overnight stay. Most general anaesthetic patients are only kept in for 4 hours post op.

I'm a great believer in medical technology, and have recently innovated digital HD endoscopy in clinic, giving a very clear and magnified view. I use it for the entire examination, including ears, so that there is no patient - doctor touching at any point. The patient has his/her own screen to observe, the examination is recorded, played back and discussed in front of the patient by the doctor, then downloaded onto a USB business card so the patient can look at their findings at home. I use a head mounted HD camera to record procedures where possible, this is also downloaded onto the card, so the patient goes home with the entire consultation and treatment in their pocket.

 
 

LEADING ENT SURGEON

Dr Mike Dilkes MB,BS., MS (London), FRCS(ORL-HNS), FRCSEd, FRCS, is one of the foremost Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeons in practice today.

Mike has performed over 800 major head and neck tumour resections and nearly 5,000 laser procedures during his 22 years as a specialist, 20 years at Bart's NHS in Central London, one of the country's foremost teaching hospitals. He now focusses on cancer diagnosis, tonsillectomy by laser, snoring/sleep apnoea and nose unblocking treatments with or without surgery.

Mike is based in London, U.K. He has a stellar track-record in ENT treatments and ENT laser surgery and has authored many scientific papers, chapters (inc. Gray's Anatomy), a book on snoring, a book on Allergy and has appeared in the media (TV , radio and newspaper) over twenty times. He is a Master of Surgery and honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of London. 

GREAT VALUE, HONEST PRICING

We strive to offer patients great value. 

 

Mike Dilkes therefore left Harley Street and set up his own Care Quality Commission (CQC) approved and BUPA registered clinic called HealthHub. It is in Central South London, by train 9 minutes from Victoria Station, 12 minutes from Blackfriars. The clinic is directly below platform 4 of Herne Hill overland train station, it takes less than 2 minutes from leaving the train to entering the clinic.

 

This clinic is a fully equipped ENT facility with all of the latest technology for examination and treatment. Prices here are less than half of Harley Street or private hospitals, yet with often better equipment and the same doctor.

So for insured patients, less of your annual allowance is used. For self referral and self pay patients, lower prices but still the best quality.  

 

Call 0207 870 9166 for an appointment or contact us.

 

MIKE DILKES IN LONDON (UK)

Dr Mike Dilkes runs a full clinic service for Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) problems. From tonsils to blocked nose, allergies to cosmetic surgery, and  snoring, mole and small tumour removal.

Mike Dilkes concentrates his work in three main centres to more efficiently handle the high demand for his care. Local anaesthetic laser procedures and minor operations are performed at HealthHub, a fully equipped Consulting Suite conveniently placed in South Central London Zone 2.  


General anaesthetic operations are performed as day cases either at: 

1) Spire London East Hospital, a large private hospital with good parking, just off the North Circular Road about 10 minutes from the Northern exit of the Blackwall Tunnel, 5 minutes from the southern end of the M11 and 15 minutes walk from Redbridge Central Line tube station. 

2) The Weymouth Hospital, a centrally placed private hospital on Weymouth Street, within easy walking distance of Oxford Circus, Baker Street, Regents Park or Great Portland Street tube stations.

Clinic out patient consultations are usually held at HealthHub for price and quality reasons, although clinics are also available at Spire London East Hospital. 

 
HAPPY PATIENTS

I live in San Francisco. I’ve had the great privilege of having Mike Dilkes perform a laser tonsillectomy on me. He is my hero. Many many years of suffering with frequent episodes of tonsillitis, he cured that in minutes with his expertise.

We came from Holland just to see Dr. Dilkes for a tonsillectomy by laser. My daughter was very nervous but Dr Dilkes was amazing at dealing with her and putting her at ease. Procedure took a few minutes and after that we were off to return home. She avoided a long recovery, hospital stay and general anaesthesia. Will recommend this to anyone looking for a non invasive way of dealing with their tonsils.

After chronic tonsillitis for years, Dr Dilkes booked me in for an operation the following week. Extremely fast service.
