Alasdair Robertson is an ear, nose and throat surgeon based in the Queen Elizabeth University Hosptial in Glasgow. He qualified in medicine at Glasgow University in 1995. He gained wide experience in ENT by working in various ENT departments in Scotland, then England and Wales before returning to Glasgow in 2009 to take up his current consultant post.
Mr Robertson has a special interest in diseases of the nose and sinuses (rhinology) however he still treats all general ENT conditions. His NHS practice includes adult and childhood ailments. Innovation in surgical treatments is constantly improving patient outcomes. Mr Robertson is an enthusiastic proponent of cutting edge treatments. Balloon sinuplasty is a novel technique for treating chronic sinusitis. He has been to New York and Madrid to study this exciting new surgical procedure and has pioneered its introduction into NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Nasal allergy affects 1 in 4 people in the UK, current medications are effective and safe however, they are not acceptable to everyone. Immunotherapy either by mouth or injection is an alternative treatment that Mr Robertson is able to advise on and administer. Allergy testing is important in the management of nasal disease and can be easily carried out at an outpatient consultation.
