Dr Ryan Sommerville BSc, Post Grad Dip (P Health), MB BS, FRACS (ORL)

Dr Sommerville is an Australian trained Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Surgeon. After completing his specialty training in 2008, Dr Sommerville worked as a private Consultant ENT surgeon on the Sunshine Coast in Qld, and publicly at Logan Hospital in 2009.

His sub-specialty training in Skull Base Surgery was undertaken in 2010 in Bergamo, Italy under Professor Giovanni Danesi, who is widely regarded as one of the best Skull Base surgeons in the world.

Dr Sommerville was fortunate enough to be the first ever Fellow for Professor Danesi. Professor Danesi’s presence at teaching courses in ENT and Skull Base surgery is highly valued, and Dr Sommerville was lucky enough to have a full year of daily tutelage, learning surgical skills but also Dr Danesi’s strategy of management of complicated skull base disease.

While in Italy Dr Sommerville was able to further his skills in both all aspects of Skull Base Surgery, be involved in research in skull base disease, as well as the opportunity to be on the teaching faculty of two international courses, one on Middle Ear Surgery and the other on Anterior and Lateral Skull Base Surgery, and to present research at international skull base conferences.

At present he is working publicly at The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, and also enjoys teaching medical students and ENT trainees. As well as his sub-specialty interests, Dr Sommerville has excellent general training in and genuinely enjoys all aspects of ENT surgery, both paediatric and adult, and would be very keen to assist General Practitioners or other Specialists with their patients.

Dr Sommerville lives in Brisbane with his family, and enjoys most sports, particularly cycling and running.
