Mr Jonathan Joseph is a Consultant ENT Surgeon at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital and the Royal Free 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 in his hospital. The training and experience he has gained allowed him to treat complex sinus disease, both medically and surgically and he also performs nasal reconstruction to treat inherited and acquired nasal deformity.

Another aspect of Mr Joseph’s practice is to run specialist paediatric ENT 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.
