Professional background

Mr Jonathan Joseph is a consultant ENT surgeon at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital with honorary contracts at the Royal Free Hospital and the Whittington Hospital. His responsibilities include the treatment of all forms of ENT disease both in adults and children.

Mr Joseph has a specialist interest in rhinological disease and he is the lead surgeon for sinonasal cancer treatment at UCLH. He is fellowship trained in the treatment of complex nasal and sinus disease, both medically and surgically, along with septorhinoplasty to treat inherited and acquired nasal deformity.

Mr Joseph is the clinical lead for paediatric ENT and runs specialist paediatric outpatient clinics and surgical theatre lists.

He always works hard to deliver the highest level of care to all of his patients. Mr Joseph’s philosophy is that if someone has been referred to him for a specialist opinion, then he must provide the best possible care and management of their condition. Mr Joseph wants his patient to go away feeling like he has tried his best for them.

Mr Joseph attends regular specialist meetings and keeps up to date with the literature in his specialty. This ensures that he has the knowledge to deliver excellent care to all patients.

Outside of work Mr Joseph has a number of interests. He is a keen cyclist and cycles to work most days from his home in Finchley, North London. Mr Joseph plays in a weekly 5-a-side football game which is very sociable but also highly competitive! Most of all however he has his family. He is married with 3 sons which certainly keeps him busy but they give him great joy and pride in helping them develop and grow.

Research interests

Mr Joseph is actively involved in recording subjective and objective outcomes following structural nasal surgery. We have the largest practice of its kind in the UK so we aim to harness the wealth of data we have available to learn more about nasal obstruction and the surgical treatments for it. He is also engaged in research into novel techniques for treating rhinitis and sinusitis.

Body dysmorphic disorder is another area of interest for Mr Joseph. He has published on this subject and continues to explore its complexity.

Mr Joseph is leading the development of awake ENT surgery at UCLH in the bespoke procedure zone of RNENT & EDH. He is researching patient experience along with subjective and objective outcomes.
