Doctor Theodore Athanasiadis
Dr Athanasiadis (MMBS, PhD, FRACS) is the medical director of the Adelaide Voice Clinic. He also works as a laryngologist at Flinders Medical Centre and Senior lecturer at Flinders University in South Australia. He is director of the laryngology fellowship at Flinders and currently President of the Laryngology Association of Australasia. He has authored over 20 publications and book chapters and lectured widely both nationally and internationally on laryngological issues.
With support from the Passe and Williams Foundation, Theo completed a PhD in sinonasal bleeding and wound healing as part of his training in Otolaryngology. He was fortunate to receive the Marjorie Hooper Travelling Scholarship from the RACS allowing him to complete a further year of sub specialty training in laryngology. On returning to Adelaide, Theo established voice centres both at Flinders University as well as in private practice working in close collaboration with speech pathologists, singing teachers and voice and swallowing scientists. With these collaborations he has fostered and expanded the laryngology research program at Flinders with active research interests in the areas of chronic cough, respiratory papillomatosis and vocal fold augmentation.
