Mr Arya is a Consultant ENT Surgeon at Nuffield Health The Grosvenor Hospital, Chester. His current NHS consultant base is Wrexham Maelor Hospital where he is the ENT lead in the snoring and sleep disordered breathing and head and neck cancer services.  

Mr Arya has worked in many major ENT centres across the UK including Bristol, Nottingham and Liverpool. He completed a Master’s degree in research methodology at the University of Liverpool in 2007 and was appointed as a clinical research fellow at the University where he completed research in laryngeal carcinoma (for an MD thesis).

He has over 30 research publications and presentations and has won several research prizes. He was appointed as the UK Interface Fellow in Head and Neck Surgery in 2009 which provided him with extensive subspecialty training.

As well as treating patients with all manner of general ear, nose and throat conditions, Mr Arya’s special clinical interests include snoring/sleep apnoea and sinus surgery. He offers injection snoreplasty (an outpatient-based procedure) for patients who snore as well as balloon sinuplasty for patients with sinus problems.

He is also interested in allergy testing and treatments and is hoping to be able to introduce immunotherapy treatments in the near future.
