Director, Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
CEO, BeeClear LLC
Steven L. Goudy, MD, MBA, professor of otolaryngology, director of pediatric otolaryngology at Emory University School of Medicine, founding director of the ACGME-accredited pediatric otolaryngology fellowship at Emory, and medical director of otolaryngology at Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta, is dedicated to providing top-level surgical care to the children of Georgia.
His clinical practice focuses on maxillary development, Pierre Robin sequence, vascular malformations, and velopharyngeal insufficiency. Working closely with colleagues at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Georgia Institute of Technology, and other local and state entities, Dr. Goudy and his team have developed novel and innovative solutions for care delivery that have brought value to families and improved treatment for patients.
Dr. Goudys research is focused on defining the biologic processes that guide facial formation for the development of better approaches to regenerating damaged and deficient facial bone and improving wound healing after surgery or injury. Current research projects include an NIH-funded studies to develop immunological approaches to improving oral cavity wound healing, leveraging the oral microbiome to improve oral wound healing and a project to devise cranial facial bone regeneration techniques for pediatric bone replacement procedures.
Dr. Goudy is dedicated to international service, particularly in the areas of surgical education and delivering surgical care to children with limited access to healthcare. He has traveled globally and performed mission work for more than 20 years in such countries as Guatemala and the Philippines, providing free surgical care to patients with cleft lip and cleft palate and engaging in medical education activities.
Dr. Goudy’s lab focuses on craniofacial bone regeneration and the basic biologic mechanisms that control facial bone and soft tissue regeneration. He currently collaborates with investigators at Georgia Institute of Technology and is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Children’s Research Trust.
