Rhinology is the study of the nose, including the sinuses. Rhinology concerns itself with medical and surgical diseases of the nasal passages as well as paranasal sinuses. It is becoming more important after the introduction of nasal endoscopes. A rhinologist is a specialist otolaryngologist who specifically treats the nose.
Rhinology and sinus surgery is a subspecialty that manages nasal and sinus problems. Common problems we treat are allergies, nasal obstruction, and sinusitis. Less common conditions, such as tumors of the sinuses or anterior skull base can also be treated with minimally invasive techniques.
The specific surgeries are Endoscopic sinus surgery Functional nasal surgery (such as septoplasty) Nasal and sinus disorder (sinusitis) treatment Skull base surgery etc.
