Mr Sharp is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of all aspects of Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery, with super-specialist knowledge in the medical and surgical treatment of problems that arise with the structure and function of the nose in both his NHS and Private Practice (a Rhinologist and Nasal Plastic Surgeon).
His particular surgical interest is in rhinoplasty (a 'nose-job', or operation to alter the shape of the nose) and Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (F.E.S.S) which is surgery performed on the nose and sinuses for long standing sinus problems and nasal polyps.
