    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.

    Tonsil and Adenoid Infections Tonsillitis Tonsillectomy
    After a long period of tonsillitis, I had a consultation with Professor Lloyd about having my tonsils removed. He explained the procedure thoroughly and in a way which was very understandable and quickly put me much at ease. From then until the surgery, we knew we could contact his secretary Nicki with any queries and that she would be very reassuring and happy to answer straight away. On the day, Professor Lloyd was very caring and had an excellent bedside manner. I would highly recommend Professor Lloyd to anybody.

    Tinnitus Grommet Insertion Dizziness
    I had a grommet fitted in my ear as I had been suffering bad tinnitus and dizziness post radiotherapy for a brain tumour. The procedure was very successful. I had every confidence in Professor Simon Lloyd. He was very pleasant to deal with and most importantly he fixed my problem with dizziness and tinnitus.

    Labyrinthitis Hearing Loss Vertigo
    I visited Professor Simon Lloyd after episodes of severe vertigo. His manner is calm and reassuring and he answered my many questions, no matter how random. I was diagnosed with Labyrinthitis and was prescribed medication, an MRI and vestibular physiotherapy. I also had two follow-up consultations during my recovery. I want to thank Professor Lloyd for his care as I’m now greatly improved after initially feeling utter despair with my symptoms. Nicki, his PA, is also very friendly and helpful. Thank you both.
