    Clinical Interests

    My specialties are Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (Ear, Nose, & Throat) with a subspecialization in Rhinology (Nasal & Sinus Disorders).

    Major area of clinical focus and interest is rhinology-the diagnosis and management of nasal and sinus disorders. I specialize in the treatment of chronic bacterial sinusitis, fungal sinusitis, nasal polyposis, nasal obstruction, and tumors of the nose and sinuses. I also specialize in minimally-invasive surgical techniques for the nasal cavity, sinuses, skull base and orbit.
