Mr Sanjay Verma is an experienced Consultant ENT/ Head & Neck surgeon who has developed his knowledge and surgical skills over two decades of specialist practice in centres of excellence at home and abroad. He undertook his medical training at the University of Cambridge, where he graduated with distinction. After a period of specialist ENT training in the Cambridge region, he was awarded the coveted Thomas Wickham-Jones ENT fellowship to Toronto General Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada.
It was here that he gained the latest knowledge and skills in the management of adult Ear, Nose and Throat disorders. In 2012 Mr Verma was invited to the renowned Causse clinic in Beziers, France, where he gained experience in laser ear and hearing surgery, as well as cosmetic surgery for bat ears.
Mr Verma also subspecialises in Nose and Sinus surgery. He has developed an interest in sinus surgery (FESS). He regularly manages nasal and sinus conditions, performing septoplasty and turbinate surgery to ease nasal blockage, improve breathing and help snoring. Mr Verma also regularly sees patients with voice and swallowing/ globus problems, and is able to perform flexible nasoendoscopy in clinic to visualise the throat.
Since 2009, Mr Verma has been appointed as an ENT consultant to Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. He has been instrumental in leading middle ear and mastoid surgery, sinus surgery and tonsillectomy techniques and has set up the joint ENT/Neurology balance clinic at the Leeds General Infirmary. He is also Clinical Lead for the Lateral Skull Base (acoustic neuroma) ENT service.
He is committed to training the next generation of surgeons. He has been an appointed Royal College of Surgeons Tutor for Leeds, overseeing the delivery and standards of surgical training throughout the Trust. Presently he is Educational Lead for the Head and Neck Directorate, ENT lead for the Special Senses Teaching programme and sits on the ENT UK Committee for Global Health.
Mr Verma is married with two sons and lives in North Leeds. He is widely travelled and participates in Rural ENT Camps for the Thai Red Cross. He is also a committee member of the Yorkshire Indian Society and helps raise funds for charities in the UK and India. Schooled at King Edward’s, Birmingham, Mr Verma retains a perhaps misguided passion for the fortunes of Aston Villa football club.
