Welcome to the Johns Hopkins Sinus Center. We are committed to the diagnosis, management, and research of diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses.
Nasal and sinus problems are among the most common health conditions for which patients seek medical attention. Rhinosinusitis is the number one self-reported chronic health condition in the United States, affecting between 30 and 40 million people each year. Symptoms of nasal and sinus problems include nasal blockage, stuffiness, nasal drainage, sinus pressure, cough, fatigue, headache, and the loss of the sense of smell and taste. Fortunately, a broad variety of medical and surgical therapies are available to treat nasal and sinus diseases, and new approaches are constantly being developed.
At the Johns Hopkins Sinus Center, patients of all ages and from many parts of the world take advantage of our full range of state-of-the-art services used to evaluate, diagnose and treat nasal and sinus problems. We welcome even the most complex of cases, knowing that, if necessary, we can draw from the expertise of colleagues in other Hopkins departments to provide accurate and comprehensive care from a multidisciplinary perspective.
In addition, the Sinus Center faculty is engaged in an unparalleled basic science and clinical research effort to explore the causes of nasal and sinus disorders. We partner with instrument and pharmaceutical companies to assist in the development of the most modern technological advancements for management of sinusitis - such as advanced surgical instruments, surgical robotics and novel medical therapies – to be used to provide our patients with the absolutely highest level of care available today.
