He is part of the multidisciplinary team at the Head and Neck Unit, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. Conventional surgical techniques for tumors are supplemented by the endoscopic transoral laser technique, in which the carbon dioxide laser is used to extirpate cancers and a variety of other pathologies without needing to incise the neck.

Mr Khalid Ghufoor has set up the transoral robotic surgery (TORS) at the Royal London Hospital, the cutting edge technology being used allows for advanced tumor resections from the throat.
