Dr. Pasha has a special interest in revision and complex cases. Having performed over 2,500 nasal procedures, he is experienced in the higher skill set required for advanced procedures. For these cases, Dr. Pasha may request that a special imaging study (CT scan) be performed in order that it may be used in the operating room for stereotactic guidance.
