Dr Mark Rosenthal is a leading London-based consultant respiratory paediatrician. He specialises in chest and airway problems in children, which includes conditions such as asthma, pneumonia, croup and recurrent chest infections. He treats recurrent cough, wet coughs and breathlessness.
He is one of very few paediatricians in the UK who dedicates himself primarily to paediatric respiratory medicine. He practises at various prominent clinics in the capital, including The Royal Brompton Hospital, which is the national referral centre for diseases of the lungs and heart. The centre is home to one of the largest clinics for cystic fibrosis in the world.
Aside from his expertise in conditions that affect the lung/chest, Dr Rosenthal also addresses sleep disorders (such as insomnia) and associated symptoms that some children face, including recurrent waking, early waking, night terrors, snoring, restless sleep and nightmares. Dr Rosenthal is aware that children have become more technology dependent than ever before and he helps implement strategies to stop this from affecting children's sleep.
Dr Rosenthal is also a fellow of The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and a member of prestigious institutions that are related to his specialty, such as The British Paediatric Respiratory Society.
He has been invited to give lectures across Europe and in countries such as the USA, Japan, Peru and South Africa. He has also appeared as a medical expert in legal cases in the UK high court and court of appeal and given evidence to a House of Lords select committee on allergy. He continues to be an active researcher and contributes work to various medical journals.
