We offer the latest medical advances to treat your sinus and nasal disorders, and return you to your active, healthy lifestyle.

Choose Duke for your sinus or nasal disorder treatment because we offer:

  • Advanced care. We offer the latest non-surgical therapies, as well as highly effective, minimally invasive office procedures to safely clear up clogged sinuses, heal chronic infection, and help you breathe easier. Several of the treatments we offer require advanced training and skill and are not widely available.

We evaluate your needs and recommend the most effective treatment.
  • Experts with advanced training. Your care team includes rhinologists (doctors with specialty training in diseases of the nose and sinuses) and other otolaryngologists (ear, nose, and throat doctors) who work closely with allergists, pulmonologists (doctors specializing in lung diseases), speech and voice therapists and any other specialists across Duke Health that you may need.
