Mr Fayad was honoured to deliver a Presentation on his pioneering speciality “Septorhinoplasty with Titanium Breathe Implant” to the 115th Annual Meeting of OTO-EXPO, in San Francisco (September 2011).   This annual event draws the world’s largest gathering of otolaryngologists – attended by more than 6,000 medical experts and professionals from around the world, including practicing otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons and associates, researchers in otolaryngology, senior academic professors and department chairs, leaders of international societies, fellows in training, and residents.
Areas of expertise

Mr Fayad has pioneered the titanium Breathe nose implant, a breakthrough in nose surgery for patients with nasal valve collapse.  Mr Fayad performed the first operation of this kind in the UK in May 2009. The implant is used to open up the nasal valve and improve the patient’s breathing.  (Prior to the Breathe implant development, the main treatment was to wear “Breathe-Right” strips over the nose to keep the valve open).

Another new procedure offered by Mr Fayad for the first time in 2009 was the “incision-free pinnaplasty” (ear pinning for patients with prominent ears). This not only has cosmetic benefits by eliminating the scar normally associated with this operation, but also reduces the risk of infection and promotes fast skin repair following surgery.

Mr Fayad offers one of the newest ENT procedures, balloon sinoplasty, to help patients with chronic rhinosinusitis and nasal polyps.

Mr Fayad’s expertise covers endoscopic surgery, laser surgery and paediatric ENT.

Mr Fayad’s expertise also covers a wide range of conditions including the treatment of snoring and sleep disorders, vertigo and balance problems as well as other conditions of the ear, nose and throat in both adults and children.

George Fayad is lead Rhinologist and Chairman of the ENT Department at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, where he also runs the allergy clinic. Here he has set up the one of the first multidisciplinary units in the UK and introduced a combined clinic for patients suffering from a combination of nasal polyps, allergy and asthma.

Mr Fayad has also been involved in many research and audit projects, ranging from nasal problems during pregnancy, to new treatments for snoring. He has also been researching a cure to nasal allergic polyps and asthma.
