    Professor Owen Judd qualified in Medicine from the University of Nottingham in 1998. He trained in Anaesthetics, Emergency Medicine and Paediatrics in the south west of England before concentrating on surgical training and completed basic surgical training in General and Vascular surgery, Cardiothoracic surgery, Orthopaedics, Trauma, Neurosurgery and Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery (ENT).

    He completed Higher Surgical Training in ENT in Plymouth, Southampton, London and the East Midlands and is a Fellow of all four Royal Surgical Colleges of England, Ireland, Edinburgh and Glasgow. He holds a rare duel fellowship being one of only a few surgeons to also hold a Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians.

    Prof Judd has a special interest in Laryngology (Voice disorders) and Neurotology (disorders of the brain and ear, especially balance, dizziness and facial paralysis). He undertook a highly prestigious specialist Fellowship in Neurotology and Otological implantation at Queen’s Medical Centre. Professor Judd now runs specialist Voice, Balance and Dizziness clinics for both adults and children alongside Otology (Ear), and general ENT clinics. He also has expertise in complex facial pain and migraine.

    Professor Judd’s surgical expertise includes an innovative new minimally invasive Endoscopic Ear Surgery. This allows complex mastoid and ear surgery, including Stapedectomy and Ossiculoplasty to be performed with no external scar and reconstructs to a normal ear. He is one of only a handful of Surgeons in the Country and indeed, the World to be an expert on this new evolving technique. He has lectured internationally on the technique.

    In voice disorders, Prof. Judd has surgical expertise in complex cases including the use of local anaesthetic, minimally invasive techniques for restoring the voice.

    He practices as a Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon with a special interest in Neurotology and Laryngology at the Royal Derby Hospital and is a recognised lecturer and teacher and holds a prestigious Visiting Professorship in Balance Medicine from the BMJ India, as well as an Honorary Associate (Clinical) Professorship in Medical Education of the University of Nottingham. Previously, Prof Judd held the position of Honorary Lecturer of the University of Leicester and has a Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Education. He has trained many medical students and junior doctors and is also a regular International speaker as BMJ Visiting Professor for the BMJ Masterclasses in Vertigo and Dizziness in India.

    Aside from this, Professor Judd is actively involved in research in all aspects of ENT, but especially complex ear disorders, balance disorders, and the voice. He has published over 60 peer-reviewed and invited papers in national and international journals and 5 book chapters. He has published two textbooks and is currently writing two further books. During his spare time, Prof Judd enjoys sailing and taking care of his two delightful children.
