About Mr Kelly

As a consultant surgeon in one of the largest hospital trusts in Europe, I have a major surgical interest in neuro-otology and skull base surgery. I have helped set up a Neurofibromatosis Type II clinic, one of only a few in England, which has attracted national funding.

I am advancing minimally invasive sinus surgery and frontal recess surgery by my leading on balloon sinuplasty in Yorkshire. I have achieved funding for the ENT department in Leeds (now close to £200,000 in charity grants in the last 3 years) for the purchase of state of the art equipment. I have trained and am one of few surgeons in the UK to carry out totally endoscopic ear surgery (TEES).

Gerard Kelly ENT Surgeon

I have a commitment to teaching and clinical research and contribute to medical education, training and assessment in my college, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the University of Leeds. I have had a management role in clinical director of the Department of Otololaryngology in the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

I am actively involved in teaching and training, having demonstrated this in gaining my Masters of Education (Clinical Education) in 2007 when I carried out a research project in the perceptions of surgical training and I aim to pursue surgical training and medical education as a major part of my career. I have a higher degree from the University of Edinburgh (MD).

August - September 1988

Pathology research project with Dr GBM Lindop, Department of Pathology, Glasgow University, sponsored by the Scottish Home and Health Department. This was the first study to show the morphology of the mammalian peripolar cell. I became familiar with the use of both scanning and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The project was selected as Glasgow University’s entry in the Cappell Award.

March 1997 - September 2001

Project investigating the chemical enhancement of facial nerve repair in the department of clinical neurosciences, the University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Mr MA Glasby, reader in experimental neurology. This project involves the creation of a model for facial paralysis and repair using ‘neurotrophic growth factors’ in an effort to improve upon current outcome results. This was the subject of my MD thesis.

September 2006 - September 2007

A prospective study ‘A quantitative study on the differences in perceptions of training requirements between otolaryngology surgical trainers and trainees’. This work formed the basis of my 12000 word thesis in my Masters of Education degree at the University of Leeds. I passed this in October 2007 (with merit). This work was presented to the North of England Otolaryngology Society Spring Meeting in March 2008.
