Upon commencing practice in 1993, Dr Diamantis established his areas of interest which included functional rhinoplasty, all aspects of sinonasal surgery, upper airway surgery for snoring and sleep apnoea, together with adult and paediatric ear surgery care.
Dr Diamantis graduated from the University of Adelaide Medical School in 1985 and immediately commenced surgical training under the auspices of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. He became a fellow of the college graduating as an Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeon/Head & Neck Surgeon in 1991, and indeed, was ranked second in the country at his fellowship exam.
In 1992 Dr Diamantis worked as a senior registrar at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woodville South Australia and followed this with a visiting fellowship with Dr Gaylon McCollough in Birmingham Alabama, USA. During his time with Dr McCollough, Dr Diamantis undertook advanced training in a number of aspects of facial plastic surgery and the rhinoplasty techniques imparted by Dr McCollough have contributed to his current closed rhinoplasty approach that leaves no facial scars on the patient whatsoever.
Upon commencing practice in 1993, Dr Diamantis established his areas of interest which included cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty, all aspects of sinonasal surgery, upper airway surgery for snoring and sleep apnoea, together with all aspects of general paediatric ENT care.
In 2006 the practice was expanded into the Northern Territory and continues to this day. Dr Diamantis undertakes a full range of ENT surgery at the Darwin Private Hospital but for a few more complex procedures he recommends that the surgery be undertaken in Adelaide where specialised facilities are available.
In 2010 he was honoured by the Adelaide Medical School for its 125th Anniversary celebrations by having his portrait drawn by a leading South Australian artist, and which was subsequently published to celebrate the medical school’s milestone. The publication honoured some seventy to eighty South Australians who have worked in all fields of medicine and Dr Diamantis was the only Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeon to be awarded that honour.
At the time of publication, Dr Diamantis is state chairman of the Australian Society of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery Society and councillor of the federal society. Away from the rigours of a busy surgical practice in two states, Dr Diamantis spends time with family and friends, is an avid follower of the Adelaide Crows and an enthusiast of all three types of State and International Cricket. Beyond this, he produces prize winning extra virgin olive oil from his southern Fleurieu Peninsula farm.
