Northwestern Sinus and Allergy Center


At the Northwestern Sinus and Allergy Center, patients with chronic rhinosinusitis, with or without nasal polyps, receive care in a coordinated fashion. During the same visit, patients are evaluated and treated by an allergist and an otolaryngologist.

Our goals are to provide feedback to referring physicians and excellent collaborative care to patients using "expert based" algorithms which are considered by both specialties to be the standard of care. In addition to their history, a physical, and a review of old records and imaging studies, the evaluation of most patients will include nasal endoscopy and skin testing. Patients with asthma will also have spirometry. Treatment options are tailored depending upon each patient's individual evaluation. These options may include allergen avoidance strategies, nasal irrigation with appropriate solutions, antibiotics and other medications, allergy shots, and/or surgery.
