He undertook his medical training at the University of Cambridge, where he graduated with distinction. After a period of specialist ENT training in the Cambridge region, he was awarded the coveted Thomas Wickham-Jones ENT fellowship to Toronto General Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada. It was here that he gained the latest knowledge and skills in the management of adult and paediatric Ear, Nose and Balance problems, including hearing loss, dicharging ears, tinnitus and vertigo. In 2012 Mr Verma was invited to the renowned Causse clinic in Beziers, France, where he gained experience in laser ear and hearing surgery, as well as cosmetic surgery for bat ears in children.

He has developed a subspecialist interest in endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and was the first to perform Balloon Sinuplasty at the Nuffield Leeds hospital.

He also offers paediatric Coblation Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy to relieve recurrent tonsillitis and airway obstruction.
