Dr. Raithatha couldn’t have brought his sub-specialist skills to ENTA at a better time. The Practice will shortly be announcing the formation of its newest division, the Advanced Sinus/Skull Base Center. This sub-specialty team will consist of its ear nose and throat surgical specialists who dedicate a portion of their practice to diagnosing and endoscopically treating nasal and sinus disorders, and further recognize those physicians who possess additional expertise through either fellowship training or because a majority of their practice is spent performing advanced nasal, sinus and skull base surgery or-on an oncologic basis-sinus and skull base cancers.

Added ENTA President, Dr. Wayne Eisman, “Roheen is superbly qualified to serve both the general ear, nose and throat needs of his local patient populations, but also the more complex sinus and skull base conditions he faces. We welcome him with open arms to our Practice, and our newest sub-division and center of excellence.”
