Dr Deya Jourdy | ENT Doctor Westchester NY | White Plains NY | Yonkers NYDr. Deya Jourdy, M.D. is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery. A magna cum laude graduate of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, Dr. Jourdy graduated medical school at Weill Medical College of Cornell University. He then completed his joint residency at the Columbia University and Cornell University campuses of the New York Presbyterian Hospital (where he received the prestigious Distinguished Housestaff Award for exemplary service), and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. After his residency, Dr. Jourdy completed additional sub-specialty training at an internationally recognized premiere fellowship in Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery, devoted exclusively to the treatment of advanced sinus disease and minimally invasive skull base and orbital surgery, at the University of Miami.

Dr. Jourdy has significant experience with newer minimally invasive approaches to the sinuses, anterior skull base and brain, pituitary gland, and orbits (eyes), to treat disorders in these regions without external incisions. He has had extensive training in utilizing minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of sinonasal disease, such as sinusitis, deviated nasal septums, epiphora (excessive tearing), inferior turbinate hypertrophy, mucoceles, nasal obstruction, nasal polyps, nose bleeds, orbital disease due to Grave’s disease, smell and taste disorders, and tumors (benign or malignant). In addition, Dr. Jourdy has had extensive training in minimally invasive base of skull surgery for the treatment of cerebrospinal fluid leaks, encephaloceles, meningoceles, pituitary tumors, and skull base tumors/lesions. Utilizing a combination of specialized high definition intraoperative digital imaging, custom designed micro-instruments, minimally invasive balloon sinuplasty techniques, office-based procedures, and computer guided navigation, Dr. Jourdy is able to provide his patients with the most cutting edge and yet least invasive approaches to address disease processes of the sinuses and anterior skull base. This offers numerous advantages in terms of the surgery, recovery, and quality of life for his patients after surgery if needed, and in certain patients, can help avoid large skull openings, brain retraction, and/or disfiguring facial scars. Dr. Jourdy is currently the only physician with this combination of advanced training in Westchester, NY.

Dr. Jourdy is presently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the New York Medical College. He has served as an instructor at multiple endoscopic sinonasal and skull base anatomy and surgical techniques courses. He has also presented at the national level and published numerous articles and book chapters in the otolaryngology literature focused on sinonasal disease and endoscopic skull base surgery. In addition, Dr. Jourdy is an active member of the American Rhinologic Society, the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy, and the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery.
