    About

    Mr Chatrath is an extremely experienced ENT surgeon with particular expertise in the fields of nasal and sinus surgery (including rhinoplasty), snoring and paediatric ENT problems. On completion of his medical degree in 1995 from Cambridge University and the University of London Mr Chatrath was nominated for the prestigious London Gold Medal Viva for achieving distinctions in three subjects. He undertook core surgical training in Cambridge and the higher surgical training program in Otolaryngology in North London. He has worked as a Consultant ENT Surgeon for the NHS at Charing Cross Hospital as well as working in the private sector. He is also Professor of Rhinology/ENT Surgery at Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent.

     

    In his career, Mr Chatrath has completed over 1000 rhinoplasty operations in addition to 1500 paediatric procedures. In addition to these operations, he completes numerous sinus operations using cutting-edge, minimally invasive techniques such as balloon sinuplasty to maximise patient outcomes. He is one of a very limited number of surgeons in the UK specialising in nasal reconstruction and nasal valve surgery. He is experienced using titanium breathe implants.

     

    Mr Chatrath recognises the importance of communication before and after surgical procedures, actively eliciting and answering queries throughout the care cycle. His roles as an examiner at The Royal College of Surgeons, member of the Clinical Audit & Practice Advisory Group and scholarly referee for the Clinical Otolaryngology and Laryngoscope journals demonstrate his position in the evolving field of ENT surgery.

    While I was aware of the procedure, it was much more uncomfortable and painful than I had anticipated. My symptoms are no better after the treatment. I would therefore appreciate some advice on how we can move forward with a view to controlling/alleviating the symptoms.

    My experience with Dr. Chatrath was excellent. I had severe polyps going all the way up my nose, and struggled to breathe normally. I also had a deviated septum. After a careful analysis, Dr. Chatrath offered me the choice of having an operation to fix these issues. Now, just 1 month post-operation, i can now breathe normally. A truly life changing experience. Highly recommend to anyone with sinus issues.

    I received excellent care throughout my treatment. Mr Chatrath was both friendly and highly professional. He took time to explain what he found, showing me the problems on the images he had taken. His approach to the treatment was considered and methodical, going for the least invasive options first but not taking undue time to move on to other options when things did not improve. I was very satisfied with all aspects of my treatment and would recommend Mr Chatrath to anyone in need of an ENT consultant.

    I have honestly never had such a good experience with an ENT specialist. Dr.Chatrath was truly excellent and cannot recommend him enough. He has all the most up to date, state of art equipment, and was able to show me the interior of my nose which instantly clarified the problems for me. (I have had allergic rhinites since my twenties with all its attendent problems.) Dr.Chatrath, explained the nature of this chronic problem, made a short list of procedures for me, and recommended a brand new antihistime which for the first time in my life did the job. I am currently considering a new surgery with Dr. Chatrath.
