Mr Oliver Dale BMBS BSc FRCS PhD

I am a Consultant ENT, Head & Neck and Thyroid Surgeon at University Hospitals Bristol. I have a specialist practice in head and neck surgery, which includes the treatment of neck and thyroid lumps, as well as voice and swallowing problems, throat cancer and salivary gland disorders.


I also have a special interest in the treatment of nose and sinus problems, including endoscopic sinus surgery for sinusitis, and septoplasty and turbinate surgery for nasal blockage. 


I completed higher surgical training in ENT surgery in Bristol and Oxford, before undertaking an international fellowship in Australia, where I had the opportunity to work with world leading experts in the field of advanced head & neck cancer and robotic surgery. 


I am a core member of the Head & Neck and Thyroid Multidisciplinary Teams at University Hospitals Bristol. I have also worked closely with the Neurosurgical team at Southmead Hospital in Bristol to treat adults and children with tumours of the nose, sinuses and skull base. 


I have a strong interest in research, and was awarded a PhD for my work into head & neck cancer in 2016.

I have won several national awards including the Margaret Witt Scholarship for Clinical Excellence and the Modi Research Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons.
