    About

    Miss Katherine George is a Consultant Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon specialising in conditions of the face head and neck. On account of her clinical expertise, Miss George is one of the few surgeons in the UK trained in minimally invasive salivary gland surgery.

    She qualified in both dentistry and medicine, achieving distinctions when she graduated from St Bartholomew's and the Royal London Hospital Medical School. She is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and has won several awards and prizes for both academic and clinical excellence throughout her career.

    Miss George is a core member of the multidisciplinary skin cancer team at Kings College Hospital and specialises in the surgical treatment of facial skin cancer as well as an Advanced Trauma Life Support Instructor, which teaches fellow medical professionals about the current approach to the management of trauma patients.

    Miss George was the first person in the world to use intracorporeal lithotripsy to break a salivary gland stone into small pieces, thus preventing the need for invasive surgery.
