Alongside general ENT disorders, he has a specialist interest in Paediatric ENT diseases and has completed a prestigious international advanced fellowship at the Children's Hospital of Westmead in Sydney, Australia. During this period he developed additional skills in the management of routine ENT problems in children alongside management of complex breathing and hearing disorders in all children including those with additional needs. As a father of three himself, he is passionate about ensuring that children are looked after in a holistic way.
In addition to children's surgery, Rohit also sub-specialises in tumours of the Head and Neck region and is a core member of the Christie Hospital Head and Neck Cancer Team and the Christie Hospital Thyroid Cancer team.
