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.
