    Dr. Shohet runs a clinical and academic practice specializing in Cranial Base Surgery, Rhinology and Sinus Surgery, and Craniomaxillofacial, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. Along with specialized training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Dr. Shohet received additional fellowship training in craniomaxillofacial, skull base, and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Bern, Switzerland. He now applies his skills in performing minimally invasive procedures which are often essential for the successful treatment of congentital abnormalities, trauma, or benign and malignant tumors of the head and neck, sinuses, and cranial base.

    As co-director of the program for the treatment of Thyroid Associated Ophthalmopathy (Graves Ophthalmopathy), a multidisciplinary collaboration of faculty from the departments of Otolaryngology, Ophthalmology, and Neurosurgery, the least invasive approaches are utilized to treat this potentially debilitating disease.

    Dr. Shohet is also the consulting Otolaryngologist for the World Trade Center Worker and Volunteer Medical Screening Program at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. This is a Center for Disease Control and Prevention/National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (CDC/NIOSH)-supported initiative.
