Originally from South Africa, Dr Thomas Stewart graduated from the University of Sydney Medical School in 2007. Following internship and residency, he gained further surgical experience in Ear, Nose and Throat surgery while obtaining a Masters of Medicine in Clinical Epidemiology, also from the University of Sydney. He was accepted onto the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery specialist training scheme in NSW in 2014, and was awarded his Fellowship in 2019.
Following this, Dr Stewart completed the United States Medical Licencing Examinations, obtained his New York State Medical Licence, and received further subspecialty training in Laryngology and Neuro-Laryngology in New York City.
He is one of only a handful of ENT Surgeons in Australia to have completed a fellowship in this field. This was conducted under the tutelage of Dr Andrew Blitzer, a world pioneer in this field. Here, Dr Stewart developed further skills in laryngeal in-office surgery, intralaryngeal botulinum toxin therapy.
He is a member of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Australian Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgeons, Laryngological Society of Australasia, and Australian Voice Association, in addition to being affiliated with the Doctor Liang Voice Program and the University of Sydney.
Dr Stewart benefited from his extensive training across many tertiary metropolitan hospitals in Sydney, including both the Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Sydney Children’s Hospital. He practises the breadth of General ENT, with a specialty interest in Laryngology and Care of the Professional Voice. As the father of two young children, he is finely attuned to the unique challenges of paediatric care, and is particularly passionate about this aspect of ENT.
