Q: What kind of conditions do you treat, or specialise in treating?

I am an ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon and deal with conditions affecting the 3 areas mentioned. In addition, my sub-specialisation is in head and neck surgery.

I also treat patients with tumours in the nose, sinus and nasopharynx, mouth and tongue (oral cavity), throat and tonsils (oropharynx), voice box (larynx) and inlet into the gullet (hypopharynx).

Q: Briefly describe a particularly difficult case that you successfully treated using your expertise.

A patient had an advanced cancerous growth involving the roof of the nose and extending into the cranial cavity (brain). Surgery was done in collaboration with a neurosurgeon in which the tumour was removed from the nasal cavity and the cranial cavity through a combined approach. The patient was given radiation therapy which started about 1 month after surgery. She has recovered well and has remained free from disease.
