Individualised Care for ENT Conditions

At the heart of Dr. Hall’s practice is ensuring all his patients are treated with compassion and as individuals. He and his team always strive to provide the best advice and treatment options so that every patient receives optimum care for their head, neck, and ENT related conditions.  

Passionate about his specialist field, Dr. Hall is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) and has completed three separate fellowships in Head and Neck surgery. He has worked in hospitals in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the United States 

It was in the United States, where Dr. Hall was selected to train in transoral robotic surgery (TORS). Armed with this expertise, he became the first surgeon in New Zealand to perform transoral robotic surgery in 2016. He is now one of the few leading ENT surgeons who can operate using TORS in New Zealand.

The use of a TORS machine greatly improves surgeons’ accuracy, shortens recovery time and may eliminate the need for chemotherapy and/or radiation – all while dramatically reducing the risk of injury during surgery and other long-term complications. 

Dr. Hall continues to be highly involved in teaching and training, as well as speaking at many medical conferences, sharing his ENT expertise with fellow medical experts across the field. While working abroad, he conducted translational research in thyroid cancer and parathyroid glands, succeeding in growing parathyroid cells in the laboratory.

Francis has presented his results at academic scientific meetings in New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, Canada and America. He has published numerous papers in international peer review journals, has written several book chapters and edited a whole section on sinonasal cancer in a 2016 book (Surgical Techniques in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery). 

His ongoing dedication to the head, neck and ENT specialist fields allows him to provide his patients’ with the most up-to-date treatments available. Spending time to listen, understand and address his patients concerns about their condition allows him to diagnose and develop a treatment plan that is most suitable for them.

If a patient has been referred by their local GP, Dr. Hall will always review the referral notes meticulously, to ensure no detail is missed.
