Dr. Raza Pasha is an Ear, Nose, and Throat- Head and Neck Surgeon who has the unique distinction of being double board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology as well as specialty certification in Sleep Medicine. Dr. Pasha is one of the original founding partners of Altus Health, a Houston based conglomerate of medically-related, physician-managed entities. His business focus was initially in ambulatory surgical centers but currently has expanded into population health strategies.
Professionally, Dr. Pasha helped pioneer several surgical techniques from minimally-invasive, in-office procedures such as Balloon Sinuplasty to more advanced surgical operations such as the use of the Da Vinci robot and hypoglossal nerve stimulators for the treatment of sleep apnea. He is well published in peer-reviewed medical journals and has completed his own IRB approved research for the treatment of sinus related headaches. He also has lectured to his colleagues across the country at various academic institutions, seminars, and conferences on the latest surgical techniques for sleep apnea and in-office sinus techniques. One of Dr. Pasha’s more notable achievements was his sole authorship of a review book for residents in training in his field. The book, Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Clinical Reference Guide, is now in its fourth edition.
Dr. Pasha is an active advocate for health education. He is frequently featured in the press including The Learning Channel (TLC), KHOU Channel 11, KPRC Channel 2, KRIV Fox 26, About.com, and is often highlighted on Great Day Houston.
Aside from taking care of patients, Dr. Pasha also takes pleasure in keyboarding for a local doc-vested rock band and the occasional leisure dive in exotic worldly hot spots. When interviewed, Dr. Pasha jokingly debates the practicality of cashing out and settling in as the board shorts sporting, UFC t-shirt donning, village doc in Costa Rica.
