Welcome to my practice.
I am committed to providing high quality health care, by following best ENT practice guidelines at all times.
I treat both adults and children. Among the ENT problems that I treat are-
snoring and sleep apnoea
cancers of the mouth and throat
diseases of the tonsils and adenoids
I have a special interest and training in –
Head & Neck tumour surgery
Advanced endoscopic sinus surgery
Endoscopic skull base surgery
Treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea
I practice at St. Augustine’s hospital in Durban, one of the largest private hospitals in South Africa. We are equipped with state-of-the-art operating theatres, with the latest modern surgical equipment.
This includes image guidance/ surgical navigation equipment for revision and difficult endoscopic sinus surgery, and for endoscopic skull base surgery. Nerve monitoring equipment for parotid tumour surgery and for advanced ear and mastoid surgery is also available.
My rooms are fully-equipped for complete ENT examinations with maximum efficiency.
The fees for use of image guidance software and hardware, and for nerve monitoring equipment, are usually fully covered by your medical aid funder.
If you snore regularly, and are tired during the day, you may have obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)
I f you score more than 10 on the Epworth score shown below, you may benefit from a sleep study (polysomnogram) to diagnose OSA.

Consultations usually last around 20 minutes, but can be longer depending on your particular problem. I follow best ENT practice guidelines at all times.
Procedures such as nasal endoscopy (in cases of sinusitis and allergic rhinitis), flexible laryngoscopy ( in patients with hoarseness, or throat symptoms) , and tympanometry (in those with ear problems) may be performed in the rooms at the time of the consultation.
A surgeon you can rely on
