Why a Multidisciplinary Center?
A Multidisciplinary Approach
At a traditional medical office, a complete evaluation and treatment of chronic sinusitis can involve visits to many different specialists, along with considerable expense and significant loss of work time.
But at the Michigan Sinus Center, we provide high-quality, efficient treatment in a multidisciplinary setting. This means that we have everyone you will need to see right here on site: allergists, asthma specialists, and ear, nose and throat doctors (known as ENTs or otolaryngologists).
Our first-visit screening process helps us coordinate appointments with the appropriate specialists to provide you with better, more efficient care.
And our state-of-the-art imaging equipment (CTs and MRIs) is right on site, too.
Advance Treatment Programs
We enjoy a particularly strong relationship with our Allergy Department, with whom we work closely on patients who have aspirin-sensitive asthma and nasal polyps (known as “triad asthma"). We have developed advanced treatment programs for patients with this disease, including postoperative aspirin desensitization – not commonly available in most community practices. Aspirin desensitization provides substantial relief and much better outcomes for about 70% of patients with triad asthma.
Between 30 and 50 million Americans suffer from chronic sinusitis, but it is a difficult illness to treat because treatment often requires the coordinated efforts of several specialists to treat all aspects of the disease.
