Adam Frosh Chairs ENT Emergencies Study Day at University of Hertfordshire

university of hertfordshire logoMr Frosh is a regular speaker at local and international conferences.

Recently he organised and chaired a study day for Hertfordshire GPs on emergencies in Ear Nose and Throat Surgery. There was very good feedback for the day, which enabled GPs to be more confident in handling emergencies themselves and when to call for specialist help.

More details of the event are available here.

Adam Frosh has article published on ear discharge

Mr Frosh regularly has publications in the peer-reviewed medical press, including a number in the Lancet and the BMJ (British Medical Journal). A summary of some of his articles is to be found here.

This latest article was about a lady who had earache and a discharging ear caused by a rare condition that needed an unusual treatment. More information about ear infections, that can cause this discharge, is available here.

If you are bothered by ear ache or a discharging ear, this can usually be managed simply in the outpatients. If you would like to make a private appointment, please see the contact details here.

Simple Outpatient Procedure Cures Majority of Patients with Vertigo

Mr Frosh is one of only a few doctors locally (Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and North London) who are able to do the “Epley Manoeuvre” in patients with a form of Vertigo/ Dizziness known as “Benign Paroxysmal Positonal Vertigo” (BPPV).

This condition causes short episodes of vertigo (intense dizziness) when you move your head in certain directions. This can seriously interfere with the quality of sufferer’s lives and their ability to carry out day to day activities. More information about this condition is available here.

Mr Frosh has recently audited his results of using the Epley manoeuvre. Over 80% of patients are cured with just one treatment and even more are cured after a second treatment. This means patients will not have to take medication, but are simply cured and able to get the quality of their lives back.

If you believe you have this condition, you should be assessed to confirm the cause and to receive the appropriate treatment. You can ask to be referred on the NHS by your GP or contact Mr Frosh privately.
