Profile

Mr Kevin Kulendra was appointed as a full-time consultant ENT surgeon at West Middlesex and Chelsea and Westminster hospitals in 2017. He offers general adult and paediatric ENT surgery having paediatric, adult, and head and neck clinics with regular participation in both the West Middlesex H&N and Imperial Thyroid MDTs. This was following two fellowships in facial plastic surgery and rhinology. The European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery (EAFPS) fellowship involved predominantly rhinoplasty including experience at The London Clinic and head and neck skin cancer surgery with local flap reconstruction from 2016-2018. This was followed by a rhinology fellowship (endoscopic sinus and anterior skull base surgery) in 2018. During his facial plastic surgery fellowship, he also gained experience with further facial aesthetic procedures including otoplasty (prominent ear surgery) and non-surgical treatments including the use of botox, fillers and lasers visiting Professor Sykes in California who practices facial plastic surgery in Sacramento and Beverly Hills. Mr Kulendra qualified from St George’s University Hospital with a distinction in his medical finals in 2004. He secured his national training number in 2010 and was awarded his CCT in ENT and joined the specialist register in 2016. During his higher surgical training and fellowships, he has published more than 20 scientific publications including work in three book chapters (nasal septal perforation and cosmetic surgery chapters in well known ENT textbooks Scott-Brown’s Otorhinolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery and Key Topics in Otolaryngology, respectively). Much of his work has been presented at national and international meetings and has been awarded national ENT awards, such as the British Rhinology Travelling Fellowship for both his audit and research work within the field of ENT. With more than 10 years of experience in ENT and now gaining further experience in facial plastic surgery, he seeks to continually evolve service delivery. Since starting his own company KNK ENT&FPS he seeks to provide a bespoke high quality ENT and facial plastic surgery service to accommodate patients’ medical and social requirements. He has a keen interest in hockey and cricket having captained both hockey and cricket 1st XI teams at medical school as well as captaining the 1st XI University of London Hockey and United Hospital Cricket Teams.
