Mr Cyrus Kerawala graduated in medicine from St George's Hospital in 1992. Since he specialises in the surgical ablation and reconstruction of head and neck cancer patients he also chose to study dentistry, gaining another honours degree from The Royal London Hospital. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of both England and Edinburgh.
After experience in general surgery and neurosurgery, Mr Kerawala spent five years of specialist training in the North East of England. He passed the Intercollegiate Examination in Maxillofacial Surgery in September 1998 and has been on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council since August 1999.
In 2005 Mr Kerawala was awarded the BAOMS Surgery Prize by his national association in recognition of his national and international contribution to patient care. Mr Kerawala's surgical interests concentrate on mucosal and cutaneous malignancy of the head and neck, particularly reconstruction of the post-ablative defect. His main research areas concern free tissue transfer, marginal control of disease, management of the neck and salivary gland cancer.
He devotes a significant amount of time to teaching, professional training and continuing medical education. Mr Kerawala has presented over 100 papers at international and national meetings and has been invited to lecture throughout Europe, America, Asia and Australia. In addition he has published over 50 papers in peer-review journals, written five chapters for textbooks and edited a further book.
