About Dr Sharon Williams

Ear, Nose, & Throat Specialist

I obtained my MBBCh at the University of the Witwatersrand in 1986 and was fortunate to spend an elective period in Plastic Surgery & Child Psychiatry at Harvard University 1984, the year Archbishop Desmond Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize.

I did my internship in 1987 at Baragwanath Hospital, now known as the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital and considered the third largest hospital in the world.

I then worked at various teaching hospitals in the Johannesburg / Gauteng area and made my home in Cape Town after getting married.

I completed my Otorhinolarngology training at Groote Schuur Hospital in 1994 and during my Registrarship, I won the ENT Registrar’s prize in Otorhinolaryngology in 1992 & was invited to spend 2 months in Professor Snow’s Otorhinolaryngology & Head & Neck Surgery unit at the Vrye University in Amsterdam.  Here I was involved in research particularly molecular biology & its applications in Head & Neck cancer, as well as attending ENT clinics. As I have a BSc(Path) in Immunology & Haematology I remain interested in the basic sciences and this is one of the reasons why I have a particular interest in allergy, being an altered immune response.

I started Private practice as an ENT Specialist / Surgeon in 1995 at City Park Hospital & continued in a part time post in Otorhinolaryngology at Red Cross Children’s War Memorial Hospital until early 2002. Red Cross Children’s Hospital is the largest, solely children’s hospital in Southern Africa.

I am a general ENT specialist, seeing patients from birth to their later years and have special interests in Paediatric ENT, the Professional voice, hearing loss & vertigo & allergic rhinitis.

In my pursuit of a more wholistic approach to Medicine and ENT, I completed the Certificate Course in Integrative Medicine 2010 in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Stellenbosch.

I endeavour to remain up-to-date by regular reading of journals, attending both local and international conferences and courses in otorhinolaryngology and allergy as well as integrative and functional medicine.

I am proud that my son is currently studying speech and hearing therapy at my old alma mater, Wits and hope I can take a little credit for piquing his interest in the subjects of speech therapy and hearing therapy (audiology) and certainly as a result remain very current in these fields.

Cape Town City Bowl Practice

The Netcare Christian Barnard Memorial Hospital Practice in the Foreshore is set in the newest, state-of-the-art hospital offering easy access to patients from the northern and southern suburbs. At this practice I am able to do audiology investigations during the consultation, thus saving patients from having to to plan a follow-up appointment to discuss the audiology results.
