Rhinology Division faculty specialize in the diagnosis and treatment for conditions related to the nose and sinuses:
- Chronic sinusitis
- Nasal breathing disorders such as deviated septum
- Repair of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks through the nose
- Endoscopic, minimally invasive surgical approaches to brain cancers in the pituitary, parasellar, clivus and infratemporal fossa regions
- Complex frontal sinus surgery
- Nasal polyps
A destination center for chronic rhinosinusitis and nasal breathing problems, rhinologists from IU School of Medicine perform more than 350 surgeries a year to improve patients’ breathing ability. Division members also frequently partner with surgeons in neurology, endocrinology, head and neck surgery, and facial plastic surgery to determine how to best preserve facial nerve anatomy within the sinus area during complex surgical procedures.
