Advanced care for a full range of sinus and nasal issues
Whether chronic or acute, sinus issues can severely affect your quality of life. Whatever the cause of your sinus concerns, you can trust the nationally respected experts at the Rush Sinus Program to help you feel and function better.
We provide comprehensive medical and surgical treatment for patients who have problems of the nasal and paranasal sinuses, the area immediately surrounding your nasal cavity. These problems include everything from acute and chronic sinusitis for children and adults, to nasal polyps, to sinus cancer.
The Rush Sinus Program welcomes patients seeking a second opinion — after an initial diagnosis, or if your symptoms haven't improved after prior treatment. We will be happy to provide you with a second opinion, within one to three business days, about whether you should have sinus surgery.
Excellence in sinus care
Our fellowship-trained rhinologists focus exclusively on sinus and nasal disorders. Their specialized training gives them the expertise to address even the most severe sinus problems and to perform complex sinus surgeries — including a large number of revision, advanced orbital and skull base procedures.
From novel topical and biologic therapies to drug-eluting stents and balloon procedures, our patients have access to range of innovative options. This includes a number of clinical trials.
For instance, Rush is the only academic medical center in the region offering ClariFix cryotherapy, a minimally invasive, in-office treatment for adults with chronic rhinitis. This safe, clinically proven approach uses cryotherapy (or cold therapy) to treat the source of symptoms and offer lasting relief.
We are also one of the few programs worldwide to offer sinus tissue endotyping, which enables the ability to personalize treatment for sinus diseases.
Appointments to fit your busy life
We offer evening and same-day visits for your convenience, and we see patients at multiple locations in Chicago and the suburbs.
Advancing treatment for sinus issues
Clinicians in the program are active researchers and thought leaders who are helping to shape the future of sinus care, with nearly 200 combined publications and current research on topics ranging from the impact of chronic sinusitis on sleep, to quality of life after sinus surgery.
Nationally recognized care
The ear, nose and throat program at Rush is ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report and is the highest-ranked ENT program in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.
When it's more than just your sinuses
If you are suffering from a combination of symptoms, including persistent sinus pain and pressure, breathing problems, sleep disturbances and/or coughing, you may benefit from the one-stop approach at the Rush Center for Airway Diseases.
The center, the first of its kind in the Chicago area, brings together specialists from allergy/immunology, laryngology, pulmonology, rhinology, sleep medicine and sleep surgery to care for people who have co-existing sinusitis, allergies, asthma and/or sleep apnea. When you have more than one of these conditions at the same time, effective treatment requires the expertise of more than one specialist. Our team coordinates all of your care, so you can get the relief you need to lead a full, active life.
