Janalee K. Stokken, M.D., is a Mayo Clinic sinus surgeon (rhinologist) and skull base surgeon who specializes in all aspects of rhinology: inflammatory sinus disease, sinus and skull base surgery, and surgery for thyroid eye disease. Dr. Stokken's primary research interests are improving outcomes and surgical techniques for patients undergoing surgery related to the sinuses, skull base and thyroid eye disease. Dr. Stokken has a particular interest in educating surgical residents. As program director of the Mayo Clinic Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Residency (Minnesota), she was the driving force behind a major curriculum overhaul and improvements in the simulation-based training programs offered to trainees. She also has an interest in researching techniques for optimizing outcomes and education for residents.
One of Dr. Stokken's top priorities is investigating clinically relevant questions that can immediately improve the quality of care for patients and assist in patient and clinician decision-making. Another key component of her research is identifying residents in need of additional support early in their training and providing resources to improve educational outcomes. Ultimately, Dr. Stokken hopes that her research will improve the lives of the patients she treats and improve education for the residents she is so passionate about training.
