Hello. My name is Julian Hamann, and I'm a consultant Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon.
Over the last 20 years, I've learned that experience and expertise in the operating theatre are, of course, vital. But, by themselves, they're simply not enough.
It's also become clear to me that only giving each one of my patients proper, individual attention will produce the best possible outcome - not just physically, but emotionally too.
If a condition is impacting on your quality of life (whether the textbooks consider it 'serious' or not), I'm happy to meet, to talk, and to see what I can do to make things better.
I deal with a wide range of conditions in adults and, as a father of three, I have a special interest in dealing with children.
You can refer yourself to me directly or you can be referred by your consultant or GP. If you're in need of care, I'll be with you every step of the way to help.
