Center for Sinus & Allergy

The Center for Sinus and Allergy at the New York Head and Neck Institute (NYHNI) of the North Shore-LIJ Health System is a multi-institutional center of excellence that is composed of surgeons, radiologists and other physicians. Our expert staff uses the latest and best available medical evidence in treating nasal and sinus disorders and adheres to the concept of best medical practices.

Sinus disease is relatively common, accounting for approximately 13 percent of outpatient physician visits, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Increasing numbers of sinusitis patients have asthma, allergies and other respiratory diseases. Others have underlying respiratory diseases, but are unaware of the exacerbation of these disorders by sinusitis. 

The physicians and surgeons of the Center also employ the techniques of minimally invasive surgery, resulting in an often shorter, more comfortable recovery for the patient and less damage to surrounding normal tissues.
