Ameet Kamat, M.D.

Dr. Kamat is a board certified, fellowship trained Sinus and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgeon. After graduating Magna Cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa from Brooklyn College and SUNY Downstate’s prestigious BA/MD program, he completed his otolaryngology residency at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. There, he received several honors such as the Chief Resident Award, Teaching Award, Research Award, and the Turner Award for Residency Excellence. Dr. Kamat then went on to complete a Rhinology and Skull Base fellowship at the world-renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Under the guidance of pioneers in the field, Drs. David Kennedy, James Palmer, and Bert O’Malley, Dr. Kamat became highly adept in medical and surgical therapies for advanced sinonasal disease in both adults and children. He has specialized training in revision sinus surgery, frontal sinus surgery, allergic fungal sinusitis, and cystic fibrosis related sinus disease. His other areas of expertise include allergic rhinitis, acute and chronic sinusitis, frontal sinus disease, nasal polyps, papillomas and other sinonasal tumors, mucoceles, tear duct blockage, snoring, deviated nasal septum, nasal obstruction, nose bleeds, sinus headaches, smell and taste disorders, and laser therapy for hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). He believes in providing his patients with personalized medical care for sinus disease, using a combination of both systemic and topical therapeutics and safe innovative techniques in sinus surgery that include image guidance technology, anatomy-specific precision instruments, drug-eluting stents, and balloon sinuplasty.

Dr. Kamat’s comprehensive endoscopic skull base practice emphasizes minimally invasive surgical approaches through the nose and sinuses to the pituitary gland, anterior skull base, middle cranial fossa and orbit. These approaches are patient-specific and can often be safer alternatives to procedures requiring facial/scalp incisions and craniotomy. They are also associated with reduced complications, faster recovery, and long-term well-being. Dr. Kamat has extensive experience with the management of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks and encephaloceles, pituitary tumors, and other benign and malignant tumors affecting the skull base. He ensures that his patients are offered clear options before creating their tailored treatment plan.

Dr. Kamat currently serves as a Clinical Instructor and Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at New York Medical College/Westchester Medical Center. He also holds hospital affiliations with White Plains Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital. Dr. Kamat continues to present at national conferences and publish numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters to further the burgeoning interest in sinonasal and skull base disease. He is a current member of the American Rhinologic Society, North American Skull Base Society, and American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

 


Jk Rasamny, M.D.

Dr. Jk Rasamny is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. A graduate of Duke University with a degree in Chemistry, Dr. Rasamny completed medical school at the University of Virginia and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. He completed his residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Virginia where he was the recipient of the prestigious Mulholland Society teaching award for his work with medical students. Then, Dr. Rasamny received a fellowship in Head and Neck Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania where he also served one year as a clinical instructor on staff in the Head and Neck Oncology division.

Dr. Rasamny’s practice focuses on the care of pediatric and adult patients with malignant and benign tumors of the head and neck including cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx, tumors of the paranasal sinuses, endocrine tumors involving the parathyroid and thyroid glands, tumors of the major and minor salivary glands, and cutaneous malignancies including melanoma of the head and neck. Dr. Rasamny is trained to perform open and endoscopic approaches for treatment of tumors of the skull base and paranasal sinuses as well as complex reconstruction of head and neck defects including the use of microvascular free flap techniques.

Dr. Rasamny completed his fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania under the tutelage of Dr. Gregory Weinstein and Dr. Bert O’Malley Jr. who are the inventors of Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS). As such, he has specific interest and experience in the application of TORS for the minimally invasive treatment of tumors of the tongue base, tonsil, pharynx, and parapharyngeal space.
Dr. Rasamny has presented at the national and local level and has published numerous articles and chapters in the Otolaryngology literature on issues ranging from facial reconstruction to transoral robotic surgery.
