Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Dr. Man received his doctor of medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

Patient Care Bio

Dr. Li Man joined the University of Rochester in 2011 as the only fellowship-trained rhinologist in the Rochester area. His clinical practice uniquely focuses mainly on sinus and nasal disease. Dr. Man strives to educate his patients regarding their healthcare problems, to tailor both medical and surgical therapy to the individual, and to involve his patients' goals and worldview in a team-based, shared-decisionmaking approach to improving their health and wellbeing. He is adept at both in-office and operating room-based sinonasal procedures, and he is earnest in his attempts to minimize discomfort, side effects, and recovery time.

Dr. Man's areas of clinical expertise includes the medical and surgical management of chronic sinusitis, sinonasal tumors, image-guided surgery, revision sinus surgery, endoscopic lacrimal and orbital surgery, CSF leak repair, and minimally-invasive anterior skull base surgery. He is also one of the few physicians in western New York with expertise in sialendoscopy, a minimally-invasive approach to managing disorders of the submandibular and parotid glands. He enjoys collaborating with colleagues in Allergy/Immunology, Ophthalmology, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Neurosurgery, and Pulmonology to promote patients' health outcomes. Dr. Man has published scientific articles and written book chapters in several areas of medicine. He has taught at rhinology and sinus courses both nationally and internationally. His research interests include the use of topical therapies to enhance the management of chronic sinus disease, the use of epidemiologic and clinical databases to improve patient outcomes in the treatment of sinus disease and environmental allergies, and furthering the understanding of the sinonasal microbiome.
