Dr. Stacey Gray is an otolaryngologist with fellowship training in rhinology and endoscopic sinonasal and skull base surgery. She received her medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 1999. She completed her residency in otolaryngology—head and neck surgery at Harvard Medical School in 2004 and her fellowship in rhinology and endoscopic sinus surgery at Mass. Eye and Ear in 2005. She then joined the faculty at Harvard Medical School and the surgical staff at Mass. Eye and Ear in 2005. Now, Dr. Gray is the Director of the Sinus Center at Mass. Eye and Ear, is the co-director of the Harvard Rhinology and Endoscopic Sinus and Skull Base Surgery Fellowship, and is an Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology at Harvard Medical School. She also serves as the Program Director of the Harvard Otolaryngology Residency Program.

Dr. Gray, alongside Dr. Eric Holbrook, developed the Sinus Center at Mass. Eye and Ear, which she now directs, with the goal to synthesize comprehensive management for patients presenting with complex chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Each year, the Sinus Center treats more than 10,000 patients.

Dr. Gray has been an invited speaker at national and international meetings to lecture on endoscopic management of sinonasal and skull base pathology as well as surgical education and has published more than 60 peer-reviewed papers in the field. She serves on the editorial board of the American Journal of Rhinology and Allergy, the Instructional Course Advisory Committee for the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, and as Chair of the Membership Committee of the American Rhinologic Society. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Harvard Medical School Young Mentor Award for her contributions to teaching and education.

Dr. Gray’s clinical interests include diseases of the nose and sinuses and endoscopic approaches to the skull base. Her research interests focus on improving outcomes for patients with complicated rhinologic or skull base disorders in addition to the treatment of patients with prior radiation therapy for sinonasal malignancies. Her research interests also include improvements in residency education.
