I work in all areas of the ENT field and as with most ENT specialists spend much of my operating time removing tonsils and adenoids and inserting grommets. I also have special interests in middle ear surgery, endoscopic sinus surgery and have had great success with diagnosing and treating painful conditions of the ear as well as vertigo conditions.
