AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Proficiency in innovative surgical techniques in ENT, including:
The Breathe Implant; a titanium nasal implant that is a breakthrough in nasal surgery for patients suffering from nasal valve collapse. The implant is used to open the nasal valve and improve patient breathing. Conducted the first such operation in the United Kingdom in May 2009.
Incision-Free Pinnaplasty; innovative cosmetic surgery, for the benefit of the patient by eliminating the scar tissue normally associated with this operation. The procedure also reduces the risk of infection and promotes rapid skin repair after surgery.
Balloon Sinuplasty; a new minimally invasive technology known as sinuplasty balloon can safely and successfully dilate blocked sinus ostia in some patients with chronic sinusitis. The technology works a bit like balloon angioplasty to open up the blocked coronary arteries.
Expert in endoscopic surgery, laser surgery and pediatric ENT.
Qualified at the Atlanta Sleep School to treat sleep-related problems.
Expert in dizziness and balance problems as well as other conditions of the ear, nose and throat in adults and children.
