Lance Maron is an ENT in private practice at the Parklane Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa. Besides fulfilling the scope of a general ENT, Dr. Maron has a particular interest in Paediatric Otorhinolaryngology and Advanced Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery. He has also established “The Voice and Swallowing Centre @ Netcare Parklane Hospital” - a multidisciplinary centre that cares for voice and swallowing disorders.
At the age of 5, he had his first taste of the performing arts when he was cast in a movie. He then went on to play lead roles in many professional theatre productions as a child and adult. He also appeared on television and had a small lead role in the BBC made feature film “A Private Life”.
With this passion and personal experience in the performing arts, Dr Maron set out to gain a deeper understanding and insight into the super specialty of Laryngology (concentrating on the management of complicated voice disorders and care of the professional voice). This has enabled him to combine his capabilities as a performing artist and medical doctor.
He has worked on various South African theatre productions as resident ENT, assisting with education of the cast regarding voice care and prevention of vocal injury and management of vocal medical problems. These include the South African productions of: The Lion King, Rent, Hairspray, Mama Mia, Dreamgirls and Jersey Boys.
Since 2008 he has formed part of the academic faculty of several international laryngology conferences and workshops and is a member of the International Association of Phonosurgery and the Voice Foundation.
Dr. Maron was on the organizing committee of the annual ENT Congress “2010: A Laryngeal Odyssey”. He currently forms part of a Multidisciplinary Reflux Focus Group and served as editor and contributing author of “ENT FOCUS”, a local publication distributed to ENT’s, Paediatricians and GP’s.
