A/Prof Catherine Sinclair is a dual board certified, dual fellowship trained surgeon in laryngology and head & neck surgery. For the past decade between 2010-2021, she has worked in New York with the New York Center for Voice and Swallowing, also serving as the Director of the Division of Head and Neck Surgery at Mount Sinai West Hospital. In this role she worked extensively with vocal performers and professional voice users.
Catherine’s clinical research interests are in neurolaryngology, with an emphasis on the laryngeal adductor reflex and laryngeal sensory neuropathy.
She is a world leader in intraoperative neuromonitoring for laryngeal nerve protection and in 2016 developed a novel continuous laryngeal nerve monitoring technique for surgeries where the vocal nerves are at risk of injury. This technique is now being used worldwide to protect the laryngeal nerves from intraoperative injury. She is a pioneer of non-surgical ablative options for thyroid nodules.
Catherine has authored multiple publications and is the incoming Editor-In-Chief of VideoEndocrinology. She relocated to Australia in January 2021 and we are delighted to have us join our laryngologist team .
