Nose and sinus problems can be painful, bothersome and difficult to live with. They can cause severe pain, fatigue, headache, breathing difficulties, loss of smell and other symptoms. You may experience mild symptoms or suffer severely.
You don’t have to live with the discomfort of nose and sinus problems. Our compassionate team of nose and sinus experts can provide treatment for these disorders that are minimally invasive, less painful and yield great results — helping you take greater control of your health to live more comfortably.

Our physicians at the Weill Cornell Medicine Ear, Nose and Throat Department are committed to providing the highest-quality nose and sinus disease care, offering solutions tailored to each patient. Our physicians are leaders in the field, using the latest diagnostic equipment and minimally invasive procedures to address your sinus and nasal problems, including:
● Sinus tumors
● Pituitary tumors
● Deviated septums
● Allergic rhinitis
● Orbital decompression for Graves’ disease
● Nasal polyps (non-cancerous growths that form in the nasal passage)
When you become a patient at Weill Cornell Medicine, you and your doctor will discuss your symptoms and health in detail. Your doctor will also conduct a thorough evaluation of your hearing and ears to diagnose your specific nose or sinus disease. Your doctor may also refer you to an allergist if needed.
Treatment options: After diagnosing your nose or sinus disease, your doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan. This may include:
● Balloon sinuplasty (An in-office procedure in which a balloon is inserted into the sinus passageway to open and widen it. When the balloon is deflated, sinus drainage and function improves.)
● Inferior turbinate reduction (An in-office procedure in which the inferior turbinate passageway of the nose is reduced in size to improve nasal airflow.)
● Specialized head and neck surgical treatment, including minimally invasive surgery of the nose or sinus
