Dr. David A. Gudis, M.D., is the Chief of the Division of Rhinology and Anterior Skull Base Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at Columbia University Irving Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. In addition to being a board-certified otolaryngologist, Dr. Gudis is dual-fellowship trained both in Rhinology: Advanced Endoscopic Sinus and Skull Base Surgery and in Pediatric Otolaryngology. Dr. Gudis was recruited to Columbia in 2015 and treats the full spectrum of sinonasal and skull base disorders in both adults and children. His practice includes the treatment of refractory and recurrent sinus disease, sinus and nasal tumors, minimally invasive endoscopic skull base surgery, and endoscopic orbital surgery. He collaborates closely with Neurosurgery, Oculoplastics Surgery, and Pulmonology in the care of complex patients.

Dr. Gudis pursued his medical education at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, where he was the recipient of the Russel J. Stumacher M.D. Award. He then completed his residency in Otorhinolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). He completed a fellowship in Pediatric Otolaryngology and Craniofacial Surgery, followed by a fellowship in Rhinology: Advanced Endoscopic Sinus and Skull Base Surgery, at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina.

Dr. Gudis' clinical interests include the medical and surgical treatment of chronic sinusitis, revision sinus surgery, sinonasal polyposis, sinonasal tumors, skull base tumors, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks, endoscopic skull base surgery, and endoscopic orbital surgery. His research interests include rhinologic conditions in patients with pulmonary disease, such as cystic fibrosis and asthma, and novel surgical techniques for minimally invasive endoscopic skull base surgery for brain tumors and orbital tumors. He has authored over thirty peer-reviewed publications and textbook chapters, and he is regularly invited to present his research at national and international conferences. He is on several national committees for Rhinology, Pediatric Otolaryngology, and Humanitarian Efforts for otolaryngology societies.

Dr. Gudis is passionate about health care and education for patients home and abroad. He is the recipient of several grants funding humanitarian missions to provide surgery, clinical care and research in underserved regions around the world, including in Haiti, Rwanda, Kenya, Ghana, the Dominican Republic, and Peru.
