Dr Broadhurst provides a large number of highly specialised procedures, which can be performed either in the operating room under general anaesthetic or in an office-based setting under local anaesthetic. Over the last 10 years there has been a strong move towards office-based procedures in the upper airway that are performed under local anaesthetic without sedation. These have been well established as safe and effective and provide patients with significantly reduced downtime and recovery and reduced cost from hospitalisation. When Dr Broadhurst first established the clinic he was the first ENT Surgeon in Australia to be performing these awake, unsedated office-based procedures. He now is involved regularly, both nationally and internationally, in teaching other ENT Surgeons these procedures.
