Why choose Wayne Health for rhinology or allergy?

Wayne Health’s rhinology and allergy experts are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for disorders of the nose, paranasal sinuses, airway inflammatory disease and skull base conditions. Our physicians specialize in medical and surgical treatment for sinonasal disease.

Rhinitis is a swelling of the nasal passages, causing a runny nose, sneezing and congestion. Allergic and chronic sinusitis is inflammation of your sinuses, causing headache, runny nose, sore throat, coughing and pressure around the nose, eyes and forehead. Both conditions can be caused by your immune system’s reaction to an allergen.

Wayne Health rhinology and allergy specialists offer testing to identify the causes of your symptoms and a full range of treatment options to help you breathe easier and lead an active lifestyle.

Wayne Health's approach to treatment

Testing is key to treating rhinitis or allergies, to determine if your body is reacting to exposure to certain allergens. The test results are used to develop a specific treatment plan, which can range from lifestyle changes to avoid exposure to an allergen, to medication, immunotherapy or even surgery, if your condition is determined to be non-allergic.

Wayne Health’s rhinology and allergy specialists offer a full range of treatment options to meet your needs.

Advancing research and medical education

Wayne Health physicians and researchers are also faculty at Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct basic research and clinical studies. This can make the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you sooner than other providers without a medical school affiliation.
