Professor Peter John Wormald is one of the world's foremost sinus surgeons and a recognised world leader in sinus related technology.

Professor Wormald was appointed to the Chair of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery in 1998, a joint appointment between the Adelaide and Flinders Universities. He was previously an Associate Professor at the department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Hong Kong. He spent two years working with Professor Andrew van Hasselt and developing his interest in endoscopic sinus surgery and rhinology. Prior to that he worked as a senior consultant at the Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town. He was born and educated in South Africa before moving to Australia where he and his family have now proudly taken up Australian citizenship.

Professor Wormald has super specialised in rhinology, sinus surgery and skull base surgery and now practices almost solely as a rhinologist (nose and sinus specialist) and skull base surgeon. He has developed an extensive research program into the causes and development patterns associated with these diseases and has a special interest in innovative and new treatments of nose and sinus diseases.  He has been a leader in Australia and the world in new technqiues and procedures for the endoscopic management of skull base tumors and has in collaboration with intrument manufacturing companies developed and extensive range of both sinus surgical and skull base instruments

He travels extensively both nationally and internationally to lecture on this research and on new surgical techniques that he has recently developed for the management of extensive and resistant sinus disease. In addition, Adelaide is fortunate to have, in three of its hospitals, cutting edge sinus technology that is not available in most other states of Australia. This has led Adelaide to be considered as the centre of excellence for treatment of nasal and sinus diseases in Australasia and the world.

Recently more than 70 surgeons from Australia and overseas visited Adelaide to learn about new surgical techniques offering hope to sufferers of chronic sinus problems. The Advanced Endoscopic Sinus Surgery course was organised by Peter John Wormald, Professor of Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgery at Adelaide and Flinders University.
