During training in otolaryngology (Ear Nose & Throat Surgery) & Head Neck Surgery, Dr. Duggal identified a growing need to provide more specialised care for those people with ENT, Head Neck, Skull base conditions and those wanting facial aesthetic correction.

Few doctors, however, had travelled abroad to gain a greater knowledge of advanced procedure in Sleep and Snoring Surgery.
