He is a pioneer in the field of minimally invasive procedures for the nose and sinuses and has served as a principal investigator for many clinical research studies in that field.
Dr. Nachlas received his undergraduate degree at Yale University, where he majored in molecular biophysics and biochemistry, and from where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa cum Laude. He attended medical school at the University of Chicago School of Medicine. He trained at Yale University (General Surgery) and Johns Hopkins University (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery).

Minimally invasive sinus surgery was introduced into the United States at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1985. As the Assistant Chief of Service at that time, Dr. Nachlas had the honor of being one of the leaders of that conference. That launched him into a career of pioneering advances in this field. He performed the first outpatient computer-guided sinus surgery in 1992 and the first in-office computer-guided balloon sinuplasty in 2014. He has worked closely with industry to develop the techniques used throughout the country today. Dr. Nachlas remains at the forefront of innovation in the field of minimally invasive surgery of the nose and sinuses.
