    About

    Professor Simon Lloyd is a consultant ENT surgeon at the Manchester Royal Infirmary and Salford Royal Hospital specializing in neuro-otology and skull base surgery. He is also Professor of ENT Surgery at Manchester University. Following his qualification in 1996, Prof Lloyd trained at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine, Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital in London and he undertook skull base surgery training at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. Professor Lloyd also undertook several overseas fellowships. 

    He is part of the Manchester Skull Base team, the Manchester Auditory Implant team and the Manchester Neurofibromatosis type 2 and Paraganglioma (glomus) teams all of which are the busiest of their kind in the UK. Prof Lloyd’s practice is particularly focused on chronic middle ear disease, auditory implantation and diseases of the skull base including acoustic neuromas/vestibular schwannomas and is considered an international expert in his field. However, he manages all forms of ear, nose and throat conditions in adults and children. He uses the latest medical and surgical techniques including innovative middle ear injection therapy for the treatment of sudden hearing loss and dizziness and the state of the art surgical techniques including the use of endoscopes and lasers.

    Prof Lloyd is a council member of the Royal Society of Medicine, Secretary to the British Society of Otology, Secretary to the British Skull Base Society and a fellow of the European Academy of Otology and Neurotology. 

    He is the author of numerous scientific publications and the Royal Society of Medicine has recently awarded him a prize for the best researcher in ear surgery over the past 5 years.

    After recent out patient consultations and day surgery at The Alexandra and The Wilmslow, I’m very pleased to provide a review for Professor Lloyd. He was clear in his explanations, reassuring, calm and thoughtful in his observations, and about other unrelated symptoms, offering further investigations and advice. A thoroughly kind and considered surgeon who I have no hesitation in recommending. Also his secretary Nicki, was incredibly kind and helpful, and quick to respond to all my queries.

    Professor Lloyd is the most incredible surgeon, subject matter expert and gentleman. Quite frankly, I was suffering with a life-long and debilitating condition that had affected my life for 20 years. I met Professor Lloyd in 2018 after a very quickly turned around diagnosis after my referral to him. He is calm (and calming), I am a hugely anxious patient and Professor Lloyd has made my health-journey so reassuring and has given me the best possible result for me. I went from having incredibly poor hearing to an incredible result. My case was complex and Professor Lloyd has not only saved my life, but made my quality of life superb. Professor Lloyd is a careful listener, with a kind-heart and always appreciative of patients' needs. I can only say the best things about him and I wouldn't have a bad word said about him. Professor Lloyd gives the very best advice taking in to account patient thoughts/needs/lifestyle. I am delighted with the result. I went from being absolutely terrified of my diagnosis and what it meant for me to being a new person at the end my surgeries. I will be forever in Professor Lloyd's debt. (Thank you Professor Lloyd! You have changed my whole existence and I will always be grateful to you and your expertise)
