Suresh Raja, MD
Dr. Suresh Raja received his medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1991, and completed his general surgery residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City and his Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery residency at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, also in New York City.
Dr. Raja is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and is active in the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.
Dr. Raja has fostered a keen interest in all of the revolutionary techniques regarding the surgical treatment of chronic sinus disease for the past two decades. While at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, he studied under world-renowned pioneer of endoscopic sinus surgery, Professor and Chairman, Steven Schaefer, M.D. After finishing his residency, he continued to become adept in computer image-guided sinus surgery and the use of microdebriders while practicing at New York Otolaryngology Group in Midtown Manhattan, a premier sinus surgery practice for the next four years.
Since 2001, he expanded his surgical practice rapidly and gained a deeper understanding of how high humidity conditions and weather patterns affect sinonasal disease, especially after the recent hurricanes. He has performed more than 3000 routine endoscopic sinus surgeries during his career and he strongly believes that the in-office CLEARSinus Procedure® is the next frontier in minimally invasive management of chronic sinusitis and is looking forward to curing as many patients as he can.
