Stella Lee, MD, recently joined the Brigham family’s Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery as Associate Surgeon. She will also serve as Section Chief of Rhinology for the division. Rhinology is the medical science devoted to the nose and sinuses.
Dr. Lee earned her Bachelor of Science degrees in neuroscience and English from Duke University before attending Chicago Medical School. She completed her residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Yale University, followed by a fellowship in Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery at Johns Hopkins University.
Before joining the Brigham family, Dr. Lee served as Division Chief for Sinonasal Disorders and Allergy in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for ten years.
Dr. Lee is experienced in the comprehensive management of patients with complex rhinologic, allergic and skull base disorders. Her research interests include characterization of the inflammatory endotypes of chronic rhinosinusitis, the impact of environmental pollution on airway inflammation and advancing the care of patients with cystic fibrosis and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. She is a leader in the development of novel therapeutics and creation of new paradigms of how we conceptualize and treat sinus and skull base disorders.
Here at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, Dr. Lee will work closely with Regan Bergmark, MD, Alice Maxfield, MD, Anthony Prince, MD, and Rachel Roditi, MD, as well as develop collaborative patient care with Tanya Laidlaw, MD, and Katie Buchheit, MD. “I am looking forward to building a collaborative multi-disciplinary sinus center providing comprehensive care for patients with rhinologic, allergic and skull base disorders while contributing to the advancement of research in our field,” she says.
When she is not at work, Dr. Lee enjoys developing new plant-based recipes from her garden, re-discovering how to play Fantaisie-Impromptu and leading yoga sessions for her eight-year old son and two old English sheepdogs.
