G. Aaron Rogers, MD FACS

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“ or sublingual immunotherapy) for patients suffering from nasal and pharyngeal allergy symptoms. Diagnostic 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.

Radiofrequency thyroid nodule ablation has also allowed us to bring in-office treatment of thyroid nodules to our patients. This technology allows treatment of troublesome non-cancerous nodules under simple local anesthesia with an office ultrasound procedure.

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 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 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. Dr. Rogers completed ear nose and throat residency program and internship at Emory University. He grew up in Florida, attending Florida State University and the University of South Florida for college and medical school.
