Consultant surgeons at a Hendon hospital are set to feature in a prestigious guide to Britain’s top doctors.

Three consultants at BMI The Garden Hospital in Sunny Gardens Road have been chosen by a panel of GPs and consultants to be included in the Doctor’s Guide, a supplement by Tatler magazine.

Consultant orthopaedic surgeon Panos Thomas, consultant physician Dr David Levy and consultant ear, nose and throat surgeon Elliot Benjamin are among Britain’s top 250 doctors in a list of experts renowned for their skills in everything from combatting allergies to performing vascular surgery.

The Tatler guide says of Mr Thomas: “The current national tutor in orthopaedic sports surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons, Mr Thomas is a sports and knee surgeon, and was the orthopaedic specialist for the London Olympics.

“He has treated a number of elite athletes and is a consultant to several football clubs in the Premiership and all the other divisions of the Football League."

Mr Thomas said: “My colleagues and I are deeply flattered by this recognition. 

"Very few jobs on the planet require 15 years of intensive training before qualification and this recognition from Tatler highlights the hard work and dedication we have shown to our respective fields throughout our career.”
