    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.
