    Dr ElHassan is 'ace' with an excellent bed side manner and has wealth of experience as an ENT consultant. I have been suffering from blocked nose and loss of smell as a result of polyps and sinusitis - already had one surgery done) which Dr Elhassan was able to resolve. What baffled me most was that my smell sense was restored within a week of having the surgery done. I can now breathe and smell again. Thank you Dr Elhassan.

He puts patients at ease with his reassuring manner that comes from years of experience as one of London’s leading nose and sinus specialist. Mr Elhassan is one of London’s most advanced endoscopic sinus surgeons, performing this surgery on a weekly basis, often on patients who need revision procedures. He treats sinusitis, deviated septum and patients who have struggled with their breathing for a long time.
