At Wake Forest Baptist Health, our rhinology specialists are board-certified otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat doctors) with advanced training and expertise in nasal and sinus disorders, also known as rhinology.
Whether you suffer from sinusitis, nasal obstruction, nasal allergies or a more complex problem of the nose or sinuses, our specialists have the medical and surgical expertise to diagnose and manage your condition.
Depending on your specific problem, we work with multidisciplinary teams to personalize a treatment plan that is right for you.
Offering the Latest in Rhinology Treatments
Our rhinology specialists have access to the latest treatments and technologies, including minimally invasive endoscopic surgery and high resolution CT computer guidance. Advanced endoscopic sinus surgery is used for a variety of nasal and sinus conditions. Endoscopic surgery is most often done through the nose, resulting in less pain and faster recovery times for patients.
CT image guidance is a new surgical approach to allergy treatment where 3D images of the sinuses can be seen in “real time” during surgery. This technology allows our surgeons to more accurately localize sinus abnormalities and treat them appropriately, resulting in safer, more effective surgical procedures.
Leaders in Rhinology Research
We conduct research in allergy and immunotherapy, inflammation and chronic sinusitis. The goal of our work is to identify safe and effective treatments that will benefit our patients and the health care community.
In addition to research, our doctors teach educational courses nationwide in allergy and sinus disease, including:
- The American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy’s Basic and Advanced courses in Allergy & Immunology
- Courses at the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery’s annual meeting
- The Singapore Allergy and Rhinology Course
