Welcome to the official Northwestern Sinus and Allergy Center, Northwestern University’s only center for the diagnosis and treatment of sinus conditions. We’ve combined the latest in technology with some of Chicago’s best medical and surgical specialists to ensure the highest quality of care to patients with sinus disease.
At the Northwestern Sinus and Allergy Center, patients with disorders involving the nasal passages and sinuses receive care from sub-specialized experts in a university-based private practice setting. Conditions that are managed include allergies, nasal and sinus infections, taste and smell disorders, deviated septum, nasal obstruction, asthma, nasal polyps, tumors involving the nose and sinuses, and issues that affect the cosmetic appearance of the nose.
During the visit, patients are given access to both an allergist and an otolaryngologist (ENT specialist), each of whom has special skills, training, and expertise in the management of nasal and sinus disorders. The Center is able to offer comprehensive services, including in-office CT scans, endoscopy, smell evaluation, allergy testing, spirometry, and rhinoplasty consultations. This multidisciplinary collaboration, as well as access to a wide array of diagnostic and therapeutic resources, allow the Center to provide treatment options tailored to each individual’s condition.
The Northwestern Sinus and Allergy Center is also engaged in a variety of clinical and basic science studies to investigate why nasal and sinus diseases occur and to continually develop better ways of treatment. Much of this research sponsored by grants from the the National Institutes of Health, as well as commercial sources of funding. This work has helped to maintain the Center’s position at the forefront of care in the United States and internationally.
