“I recently had to have a sinus operation and this was my first experience in Holly house hospital, Buckhurst hill. Mr Samuel Jayaraj has been fantastic with my medical care, usually i get myself into such a state before any surgery but this was the first time I actually felt everything was going to be okay & i was going to be well looked after. They gave me amazing care and every member of staff who took care of me were so kind and reassuring. I would highly recommend Mr Samuel Jayaraj and his team. The room i was given was lovely & clean. I would like to thank every one of the staff that took the time to care for me & make me feel comfortable during my stay there. “

    About

    Dr Samuel Jayaraj is a Consultant ENT Surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust and Whipps Cross University Hospital.

    He graduated in 1992 from the University of London and then trained in general surgery and ENT in London, Essex and Herts before he specialised at Charing Cross Hospital, The Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNE) and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

    In addition he has undertaken further subspecialty training abroad in Rhinology and Facial Plastic Surgery in Denmark, Switzerland and USA. He also pursued his interest in Otology by working at the House Ear Institute, Los Angeles.

    In 2005 he was appointed as Consultant ENT Surgeon at Whipps Cross University Hospital, becoming the Paediatric ENT Lead Clinician in 2008 and the overall Clinical Lead in ENT in 2010. In 2012 he was appointed as the Clinical Director of ENT at Barts Health (one of the largest ENT departments in the country).

    He has worked in ENT private practice since 2006 and in 2015 he was elected as Chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee at The Holly Private Hospital.

    In 2020 he was invited to join One Welbeck ENT as a Founding Partner and ENT Surgeon, Rhinology Specialist.

    His most recent research interests have been in loss of smell due to the Covid 19 pandemic and thus far this has produced 3 peer reviewed medical journal publications (he was a Principle Investigator in one of these studies). He was also one of the pioneers of balloon sinuplasty surgery in the UK and a co-author of the Cochrane Review in this surgical technique.

    Sam's personal statement:

    "Although I have been lauded for my management and training skills, my primary focus has and always will be on providing the highest level care possible to my patients. It is particularly gratifying for me to hear patients describing my consultations as being clear, compassionate and caring and I have immense satisfaction in seeing my patients recover so well after surgery."

    He has become the ENT surgeon that local GP’s trust to ask for advice and to take their own children to see.

    Dr Jayaraj is a vastly experienced and reputable surgeon who is proficient in general ENT procedures in children and adults and is super specialised in nose and sinus surgery including rhinoplasty.

    Very professional, first class surgeon, takes into consideration how each of his patients feel, treats patients with severe anxiety, very calmly, puts your mind at rest. For me, I wasn't told the full extent of what the surgery entailed because of my anxiety. I am very grateful for that. Doesn't rush your appointment, though he is extremely busy. Also doesnt fob you off, tries different meds first, last resort is surgery. I'm very pleased and felt safe in Mr Jayaraj's hands. Highly recommend for ENT sufferers. Thank you very much Mr Jayaraj

    Simply brilliant! Samuel explained everything clearly. Diagnosis, options, procedures and aftercare. After a not so great experience with a previous consultant Samual made me feel at ease and I had confidence in him to look after my little one. Would highly recommend.

    Mr Jayaraj was really approachable and helpful in explaining the process and issues with my nose and sinuses that were causing me breathing difficulties. It’s only a week, but I can already feel the difference in my breathing. I would wholly recommend Mr Jayaraj for anyone seeking a septoplasty or rhinoplasty.

    Fantastic ENT consultant and highly recommended, including for paediatric cases. Mr Jayaraj has an excellent bedside manner - he is friendly, great with kids and takes time to explain his diagnoses/treatment plans. He put us at ease throughout all appointments and most importantly, diagnosed and solved all conditions.
