Have you worked with this specialist?
I have known Mr. Kara since 2008. We worked as colleagues and we have interacted at numerous occasions in clinics, theatres at registrar level and as Consultant colleagues too. He initiated the coblation technique for tonsillectomies and audited his results diligently. He has always believed in evidence based practice and has a wonderful manor with his patients. He specialises in Rhinology and I would not hesitate in getting operated by him as I feel he would be the safest pair of hands for me if I were to need surgical intervention myself. I would highly recommend him for sinus surgery, tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, grommets and anything that he offers he does. He audits his practice regularly and was the clinical governance lead at the CDDFT ENT department. He is constantly developing and always has in store something new in the innovative mind!

Mr Kara is one of the leading rhinologists in the country, just look at his publications and the various Professors he is rubbing shoulders with. Truly world class and an amazing asset to Darlington. Incredibly conscientious and works so hard for his patients. Definitely the person I would go and see if my family or I had a rhinology issue. Fantastic surgeon.
