Dr. Aaron Rogers is a local leader in the treatment of nasal and sinus disorders. He trained at Emory University completing hundreds of sinus procedures under the supervision of academic rhinologists and endoscopic neurosurgeons there. His research centered on nasal polyposis and chronic sinusitis in addition to studying the effects of topical glucocorticoids (steroids) on the nasal and respiratory tissues. At Advanced ENT he initiated and oversees the Otolaryngic Allergy program, offering allergy testing and modern allergy treatment options (such as “Allergy Drops“) for patients suffering from nasal and pharyngeal allergy symptoms. Diagnnostic olfactory (smell) testing is also performed. He also brought Balloon Sinus Dilation, or Balloon Sinuplasty, and the Intersect Propel steroid-eluting sinus implant to the Advanced ENT practice. After performing the first in-office sinus balloon procedure in Atlanta in 2010, he has made this a meaningful part of the treatment options offered to patients suffering from chronic sinusitis and nasal congestion. In 2017, Georgia’s first cryotherapy procedure for vasomotor rhinitis was performed by Dr. Rogers.
Lending endoscopic skills from sinus surgery, Dr. Rogers also performs advanced salivary endoscopy and minimally invasive procedures for salivary stone extraction (submandibular and parotid stone retrieval). In 2018 it is expected that laser salivary lithotripsy will be FDA approved – we will be an early center adopting this technique.
Obstructive sleep apnea, snoring and other sleep disorders have special interest to Dr. Rogers as well. Dr. Rogers works with two local sleep laboratories for diagnostic testing and has ability now to perform most sleep apnea tests from home. We have a full-time Certified Sleep Technician on-site to help with testing and fitting of CPAP devices. Dr. Rogers also offers oral appliance therapy (a specialized retainer to wear at night) and an array of sleep apnea surgeries.
Advanced ENT’s sinus radiology workhorse – the IAC-accredited Cone Beam CT scanner – is lead by Dr. Rogers as the Medical and Technical Director.
Dr. Rogers is active in the medical device innovation community both locally in Atlanta and in Silicon Valley, consulting with a number of device companies. Meaningful and innovative technology we hope will ultimately improve the quality of specialist healthcare and reduce costs for all.
Dr. Rogers has written several scientific publications, editor of a nationally-distributed pocket guide for ENT trainees, and authored a chapter in the textbook Skull Base Surgery Techniques and Concepts. Additionally he has presented medical research at many recent leading national scientific conferences.
Dr. Rogers has availability for Private & Concierge Care off-site as well.
Dr. Rogers’ personal interests include outdoor activities and spending time with his family. When not at work he can usually be found running, hiking, or fly fishing.
Local hospital affiliations include Northside Hospital, Atlanta Outpatient Surgery Center, St. Joseph’s Health Center, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite and Meridian Mark Surgery Center.
Dr. Rogers is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, American College of Surgeons, the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy, and the Georgia Society of Otolaryngology.
