Professor Rea Travels to Beijing

In May 2018 Professor Rea enjoyed a wonderful trip to Beijing and thanks his very generous hosts for their warm welcome. As a faculty member of Masterclass International, Professor Rea was visiting to lecture on a range of topics related to disorders fo the ear.

National Conference for the Elderly Lecture

Professor Rea presented a lecture to the National Conference for the Elderly. He spoke on how hearing loss might impact the life and balance of a fictional elderly lady. The lecture coincided with the publication of the new NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines on hearing loss management in England, launched by the department of health. The key points were far too many people in the UK suffer unnecessarily with hearing loss, and there are lots of aspects to ones life that can be improved by addressing it. He has an extensive range of investigations available at The London Road Clinic for those wishing to explore their hearing, tinnitus, or balance difficulties.

Upgraded Sleep Apneograph Equipment

Professor Rea has taken his first patient through overnight testing with our new upgraded sleep apneograph equipment which assesses the complicated range of disorders which might lead to snoring or its more dangerous relation sleep apnoea. The good news is both conditions can often be successfully treated.

BACO Conference

Professor Rea organised the balance section of the British Association of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgeons (BACO) conference in Manchester. Referred to by some as the “ENT Olympics” with over 1400 delegates from around the world this was a very successful event. Sessions on migrainous vertigo, central (brain) causes of dizziness, electrical implants to improve balance, and future treatments of Meniere’s disease were given by a panel of international experts who he then grilled during the panel discussion. Professor Rea gave his own lecture on intra-tympanic therapies for Meniere’s Disease. Excellent sessions on the patulous Eustachian tube, Eustachian tube dilation, and sudden hearing loss ran during the same session which was very well received.

Professor Rea Published in Leading Textbook

Professor Rea has had 2 major book chapters published in one of the world’s leading text books of ENT: Scott Brown’s Otolaryngology - a mammoth 3 volume textbook. His chapters were on otosclerosis (a common cause of conductive hearing loss) and acute otitis media in children (the commonest cause of ear infections in children and one which he treats on a very regular basis). It is always a great honour to be asked to write for this internationally renown reference book which is studied by doctors around the world. He would be very happy see you or your children at The London Road Clinic if you (or they) are struggling with either of these conditions.
