UR Medicine's Treatments for Nose & Sinus Disorders
If your sinus disorder is complex, you may be referred to UR Medicine’s Department of Otolaryngology (ENT). Our providers have expertise in both medicinal and surgical treatments for the full range of nose and sinus conditions.
Our nose and sinus specialists (called rhinologists) often consult with experts in allergy, pulmonology, neurology, neurosurgery, gastroenterology, and sleep medicine to provide you with a full spectrum of care.
Your provider will likely complete a detailed head and neck physical exam, which includes using a nasal endoscope to look at your nasal cavity.
If necessary, they can biopsy a polyp or mass right in the office. They may also use an endoscope to look at your nose, sinus, and larynx, and can perform a CT scan if needed.
If surgery is needed, our experts use image-guided, minimally invasive techniques.
