Merry E. Sebelik, MD, FACS is a Professor in Emory University’s Department of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, serving in the Division of Head & Neck Surgical Oncology with the Winship Cancer Institute, a NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center.
She received her medical degree and Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery training at the Medical College of Wisconsin as well as fellowship training in Head & Neck Surgical Oncology at UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX.
Dr. Sebelik's clinical practice has an emphasis on endocrine surgery of the head and neck, with recent training in minimally invasive techniques for management of benign thyroid pathology. She has incorporated surgeon-performed, point-of-care ultrasound into staging, treatment planning and preoperative surgical assessment of her patients. Additionally, she participates in research studies addressing expanded indications for ultrasound use in clinical care and employs ultrasound imaging in translational research.
She is an American College of Surgeons National Ultrasound Faculty member and conducts training courses in head and neck ultrasound and participates as a didactic and practical instructor in courses at AHNS, ACS, and AAO-HNS meetings. She co-directed an ACS exported Thyroid and Parathyroid Ultrasound Course at the University of Cape Town in 2018, to Head and Neck Surgeons living and working in Sub-Saharan Africa. Most recently, she joined local and international instructors to deliver additional Head & Neck Point-of-Care ultrasound training at the 3rd Annual African Head & Neck Society meeting in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Dr. Sebelik has a strong interest in addressing deficits in surgical care in low and middle income countries, and has worked with the World Health Organization's Global Initiative for Emergency and Essential Surgical Care. She currently serves on the Global Surgical Education Subcommittee of the American College of Surgeons Operation Giving Back, as well as the Global Affairs Committee of the American Head and Neck Society. She serves as a faculty mentor in Emory University’s Global Health Resident Scholar Program, partnering with otolaryngology training in Ethiopia. She recently joined with colleagues in the African Head and Neck Society to co-author Clinical Practice Guidelines for Thyroid Nodules and Cancer in Developing Countries.
Through her interest in global surgical deficits, Dr. Sebelik has been privileged to collaborate with colleagues and trainees in many low and middle-income countries, and thus facilitate care to head & neck patients who may otherwise have little access to surgical care.
