Ear Nose & Throat Surgery
23 years of experience
Head & Neck Surgery, Paediatric (Pediatric) Ear, Nose & Throat Surgery

Ms Jaan Panesar is an ENT consultant ENT surgeon who specialises in head and neck cancer, paediatric ENT and facial plastics.

Having trained at numerous centres of excellence, Ms Panesar has a comprehensive understanding in all aspects of paediatric ENT, with particular expertise in children with adeno and tonsillar disease, hearing loss and airway disorders. On account of her extensive medical background, she is known for using a multidisciplinary approach to patients with head and neck cancer and snoring.

Ms Panesar has completed both medical study and practice across the world. She studied medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago, before later completing her specialist training in Otolaryngology at The Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, Northwick Park, Charing Cross and St Bartholomew's Hospitals. Ms Panesar has furthermore worked at Great Ormond Street and completed a two-year paediatric research fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

Her position as a successful woman in a highly demanding and male-oriented speciality is not to be overlooked and, unsurprisingly, she was covered in the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Herald and Post: "Hospital consultants, and particularly surgeons, can sometimes appear aloof and even arrogant, but it's certainly not the case with Jaan Panesar, whose friendly and engaging personality seems sure to put her patients at ease."

Providing those patients with the best care and treatment she possibly can is her priority. She says: "The general public has some pretty high expectations on the standards of conduct and service they want to see from the medical profession, and rightly so. We have a duty to strive to meet those standards."

In her personal life, Mrs Panesar is a lover of culture: she enjoys classical music and jazz and has a passion for collecting art. Alongside this, she is a food and wine enthusiast and to this extent, she particularly enjoys cooking and baking for her four young children.

Jahangir (Jay) Ahmed is an experienced and highly regarded consultant in ENT, specialising in Head & Neck, Laryngology and Thyroid surgery at Barts-Health and UCLH NHS trusts. He is the current lead clinician for ENT at The Royal London Hospital, and a core member of the regional head and neck cancer and Thyroid MDTs.

Mr. Ahmed was educated at the University of Cambridge and Imperial College School of Medicine, graduating in 2001 with the Gold medal in Pathology. He also attained an MA in experimental psychology from Cambridge. He was awarded a PhD in molecular oncology (2015) for his work at The Barts Cancer Institute on harnessing viruses for immuno-therapy of cancer.

He completed higher surgical ENT training in London teaching hospitals including The Royal London and St Bartholomew’s, Charing Cross, The Royal National Throat Nose and Ear and Great Ormond Street Hospitals. These are internationally recognized centres of excellence and academia, where he gained quality experience in the breadth and depth of ENT.

Mr. Ahmed has a high-volume practice and expertise in the surgical management of head and neck tumours from all subsites including tonsil, tongue, pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box), salivary gland and thyroid.

He is one of the core thyroid surgeons in the Barts Health Thyroid Multidisciplinary team (MDT); this is one of the largest thyroid cancer groups in the UK. He is one of the few surgeons on the panel designated to perform neck dissection in thyroid cancer patients with advanced disease.

Mr. Ahmed is skilled in transoral (scarless, through-the-mouth) laser and robotic surgery, with one of the highest-volume transoral robotic surgical practices in the UK.

He has significant experience in managing voice, complex airway and swallowing problems. Uniquely he runs a tertiary level practice in the surgical management of sleep disordered breathing ranging from snoring to severe obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) refractory to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). Indeed, the team’s latest surgical audit has demonstrated tremendous success with 90% of OSA patients on CPAP who were treated by robotic surgery, not needing to use their CPAP machine post operatively.

Mr. Ahmed also performs a significant volume of advanced endoscopic sinus surgery, utilsing advanced technology such as image navigation and is therefore in a unique position to be able to offer safe, state of the art surgical treatment from nasal passage to voice box.

He has a keen research interest in minimally invasive transoral surgery and molecular treatment of cancers. He is a clinical lecturer at Queen Mary University of London. He has published over 30 articles in peer reviewed scientific journals and over 12 book chapters in respected surgical and basic scientific textbooks.

He is also part of the faculty in a number of London based instructional training courses in ENT. His involvement in academia and teaching means he keeps abreast of the latest evidence-based treatment protocols and technology in ENT.

Mr. Ahmed has gained a reputation for providing the highest quality care to every patient he treats. He is a firm believer of personalized medicine and aims to provide bespoke, individualized treatment plans for his patients. He will be readily accessible throughout their clinical journey and beyond, to ensure as comfortable an experience as possible.
