AKASH ANAND, MD

A native of New Orleans, Dr. Akash Anand received his undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University. He then went on to Tulane University School of Medicine and received his medical degree in 2006. Dr. Anand stayed on at Tulane to complete a one year internship in General Surgery and a four year residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. After graduating from residency in 2011, he relocated to Charleston, South Carolina for a one year fellowship in advanced head and neck cancer surgery and microvascular reconstruction at the Medical University of South Carolina.

In July 2012, Dr. Anand returned to New Orleans to work at the Ochsner Clinic. During this time he founded the Snoring Center and focused primarily on advanced sleep and sinus disorders, until founding his own practice,GNO Snoring & Sinus, in 2014.
