A leading ENT Consultant & Laser Surgeon

ENT Laser Surgery Philosophy

In my practice, I want day case surgery only - everyone goes home 4 to 6 hours post op. I don't pack noses or do anything that might cause discomfort or a delay in discharge. I encourage early return to work, for example if your tonsils are laser vapourised under general anaesthetic on a Friday morning, you go home on Friday afternoon, take it easy over the weekend and return to work on Monday, albeit taking painkillers and anti-inflammatories.


My re-admission rate with complications is 0% over the past 6 years at the main hospitals where I work - Spire London East and HealthHub. Unexpected overnight stay is very rare, almost everyone goes home the same day.

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). This means that most nose and throat surgery in particular can be performed as day cases, as blood loss is minimal due to the coagulating effect of lasers, and the procedure is clean and quick.

Technological advances are happening all the time in medicine and the world generally. I like to travel and observe these new procedures, implementing those that appear to show benefit. 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

  • Local anaesthetic laser tonsillectomy
