Professional background

Premjit Randhawa graduated from the University of Leicester and subsequently completed his higher surgical training in London (North Thames region) working in many centres of excellence and training under internationally renowned nasal and sinus surgeons. He hold a Masters in Allergy and Immunology which he obtained with distinction from Imperial College London. He provides the full breadth of elective and emergency ENT services here at UCLH in both adults and children. His sub-specialist practice is in the field of rhinology and facial plastics surgery and he manages all aspects of diseases related to the nose and sinuses. He has advanced skills in septorhinoplasty (functional, augmentation, reconstructive) and endoscopic sinus surgery. A large proportion of the surgical procedures he perform are revision surgery owing to the tertiary referral service at the RNTNEH.
