“Mr Arora was super friendly and took time to understand what was bothering me. He explained everything to me and I left with complete confidence that he was getting to the cause of my problem. 2 weeks later I was breathing properly and no longer need any nasal sprays. I could not be happier with the outcome and am glad I chose him as my consultant. “

    I have had several consultations before seeing Asit - allergic to London, asthma, house dusty mites. It was only when Asit went to work with an endoscope that my problem was patently clear. With a course of steroids, the condition improved temporarily as Asit explained but there was only one thing for it - a significant operation to remove extensive polyps from both nasal cavities and to straighten my septum. Well the operation was extensive but the results have been life changing and life affirming. Asit has been diligent in his follow up meetings with me. Perhaps his one draw back is that he works out several consultation rooms across London and pinning him down is a little difficult. But now I can sniff him out!!

    "Asit spent his final year of formal ENT training under my care, before moving on to several international Robotic Head & Neck Fellowships, and I knew then he would go far. It is thus no surprise that he is now at the vanguard of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) in the UK, running a supraspecialist and tertiary practice in both in the NHS and privately. And while Asit of course has robotic surgical skills, there is nothing 'robotic' about his manner ... he reamins ever charming, kind and caring."
