    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.

    From the very instant I meet Mr Chatrath I felt at ease. He was quick to diagnose my condition and very very prompt in booking a slot for the operation. I felt it was no trouble asking questions outside of my appointments and my concerns were dealt with almost immediately. His secretary was very efficient and I would have no hesitation in recommending him and his team.

    Epistaxis (nose bleeding)
    I received first-class treatment from Mr Chatrath I had been admitted to hospital due to heavy nose bleeds and this problem went on for months and no one sorted the problem.I decided to find a consultant myself and made an appointment with Mr Chatrath. He was polite and gave me a thorough examination and explained everything to me. He started treatment straight away and after my third visit my problem had calmed and I didn't need to go back.He a first-class consultant and treated me with respect and made me feel relaxed and comfortable.He knew straight away what was wrong.I would highly recommend Mr Chatrath and if I ever needed any treatment again I would go back. Thank you for fantastic care.

    I approached Mr Chatrath originally as I had heard of the Earfold technique to correct ear positioning. I discussed this at the original consultation with Mr Chatrath who demonstrated what it would look like. He also explained pinnaplasty which we both felt would give a much better result in my case. I decided to go ahead with a pinnaplasty operation which Mr Chatrath carried out. 3 weeks after the operation I am writing this review and am delighted with the results. Selecting the pinnaplasty option was most definitely the best solution for myself. I should have done this years ago! I would certainly recommend Mr Chatrath to anybody considering an ear pinning operation.

    Adult Ear, Nose & Throat Surgery
    I had the Earfold procedure 4 weeks ago and I am very pleased with the results. Doctor Chatrath is an excellent and very experienced professional. The final position of my ears is even better than the one achieved during the initial test. The procedure under local anaesthetic took him less that 15 minutes per ear. I only felt some discomfort the first night for which I took paracetamol. The only recommendation is to be careful when you pull on/off your clothes for the first 2 weeks, don’t be rough otherwise it could be a little bit painful. I highly recommend the procedure and the Doctor.
