Overview
Dr. George Scangas’s primary research interests include chronic rhinosinusitis, endoscopic sinus surgery, patient-reported outcome measures, and healthcare economics. He has published several articles on the cost-effectiveness of endoscopic sinus surgery for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis both with and without nasal polyps. Dr. Scangas combines his clinical interest of caring for patients with diseases of the nose and sinuses with his research on clinical outcomes towards the ultimate goal of improving quality of life for his patients. A graduate of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Scangas is currently finishing the Harvard Otolaryngology Residency Program and will be staying at Harvard to complete the Rhinology/Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery Fellowship in 2017.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
