The bulk of his training was focussed on nasal and facial plastic disorders under leading international experts. After completing his training, he secured the coveted Royal College of Surgeons of England advanced rhinology & facial plastic fellowship at Charing Cross & The Royal Brompton Hospitals – one of the only accredited fellowships dedicated to both complex rhinoplasty and advanced sinus surgery in Europe. Although fully trained and certified in all aspects of ENT & head and neck surgery, Mr Unadkat’s practice is primarilyfocussed on disorders of the nose and sinuses. He has authored over 30 peer-reviewed publications and several book chapters with ongoing active research interests in functional nasal surgery and has secured industry funding to look at the interplay between nasal surgery, snoring and sleep disordered breathing.

He is the inaugural president of the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery (EAFPS) Junior Members Board and is invited speaker to several national and international meetings.
