Elias practices in all areas of otolaryngology/ENT surgery and is an advocate of minimal access surgery (of the ear and sinus) and will offer an external incision-free and local anaesthetic option wherever possible to minimise risk and inconvenience.

After his specialist training, Elias undertook two years of surgical fellowship (further training to develop an advanced aspect of practice in a leading international centre), at the Toulouse Hospitals, France and at Guys & St Thomas’ / Evelina Children’s Hospitals.
His specialist training was in London (Great Ormond St, UCLH/Royal National ENT hospital, St Mary’s, Charing Cross, Royal Free and St Bartholomew’s Hospitals) and his general surgical training was on the Oxford rotation. He studied at Kings College, University of London and Caius College, University of Cambridge.
