Profile


MR GLENN WATSON - Born 1959

 

Mr Glenn Watson

I am a fully qualified Otolaryngologist, otherwise known as an Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Surgeon.

I completed a science degree with Honours and subsequently a medical degree at Monash University, Melbourne. Following my graduation from medicine in 1989, I trained as a Resident and Registrar at the Alfred Hospital and subsequently Monash Medical Centre.

Thereafter, I trained in ear, nose and throat, head and neck surgery gaining my Fellowship to the College of Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Surgery in 2000.

I was appointed as a Specialist ENT Surgeon at the Western Network Hospitals, and Werribee Hospital in 2000 and I continue this commitment.

I carry out private operations at the Epworth Freemasons, The Avenue, Cotham and Western Private Hospitals. In addition to this, I maintain my commitment to country Victoria by consulting at The Healthcare Centre (Morwell) and operating at The Latrobe Regional Hospital (Taralgon). I have maintained this appointment since the year 2000 and continue to provide this service to the Latrobe Valley.

In working at these hospitals, I am involved in the training of medical students and up and coming ear, nose and throat surgeons. My special interest is Paediatric Otolaryngology, Nasal Surgery and in particular Endoscopic Sinus Surgery as well as the treatment of patients with Vertigo (dizziness).
