Jon Mallen-St. Clair, MD, Ph.D. is a board-certified otolaryngologist and fellowship-trained surgeon specializing in head and neck cancer and reconstructive surgery. He is trained in the medical and surgical management of all aspects of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery. As a head and neck surgeon trained in microvascular reconstruction. Dr. Mallen-St. Clair specializes in the surgical treatment of both benign and malignant head and neck tumors, as well as the surgical management of thyroid, parathyroid, and salivary disease. He has expertise in microvascular reconstruction of the head and neck and is highly skilled in minimally invasive techniques, including transoral robotic surgery (TORS).

After receiving his undergraduate degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Mallen-St. Clair was awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health Medical Scientist Training Program to study the role of chronic inflammation in cancer. He received his M.D. and Ph.D. from New York University School of Medicine and completed a 5-year residency in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles. He received further subspecialty training at the University of California San Francisco in advanced head and neck oncologic and microvascular reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Evan Walgama is a fellowship-trained sinus and skull base surgeon and serves as Co-Director of the Beverly Hills Sinus Center. He has trained under a number of nationally prominent sinus surgeons throughout his training and is proud to be able to offer the highest level of care available to patients in Los Angeles.

Dr. Walgama has a particular interest in chronic sinusitis, nasal polyposis, sinonasal tumors, and endoscopic skull base surgery. He enjoys the treatment of difficult to control sinusitis, particularly those patients who have required multiple previous sinus surgeries. His goal is to perform surgery that optimizes further medical management and keeps patients from having to return to surgery. He also treats complex skull base disorders such as pituitary tumors, cerebrospinal fluid leaks, chordomas, and benign and malignant tumors of the nose, sinuses, and nasopharynx. These challenging cases are often handled in collaboration with physicians from multiple other specialties to ensure the best possible outcome.

 Dr. Walgama graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor’s degree in philosophy. He received his M.D. from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas and was a junior member of Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. He completed a five-year residency in Otolaryngology at the same institution where he served as chief resident at Parkland Memorial Hospital. He then completed a one-year fellowship in Endoscopic Sinus and Skull Base Surgery at Stanford University under the mentorship of current American Rhinologic Society President, Peter Hwang, MD.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Walgama is active in clinical research. He has presented original research at national meetings and publishes in peer-reviewed journals in his specialty. He is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the American Rhinologic Society.
