Dr. Welch's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Welch "I am board certified in Otolaryngology -- Head & Neck Surgery and fellowship-trained in rhinology, sinus surgery and anterior skull base surgery. I am a former chairman of the American Rhinologic Society Information Technology Committee as well as a member of the Board of Directors for the American Rhinologic Society, which is the premier society that advocates for clinical and basic science research and advances in treatment for patients with sinusitis. I serve on the Rhinology & Paranasal Sinus Committee of the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, and these are two long-standing committees that promote education in the field of rhinology and allergic diseases. Lastly, I am an Associate Editor and on the Board of Directors for the International Forum of Allergy & Rhinology, the most widely distributed and read medical journal for sinusitis and allergic diseases. I currently practice and research at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. I see patients with chronic sinusitis, sinus cancer, sinus tumors, polyps, deviated septums and those who would like a consultation regarding endoscopic sinus surgery or revision endoscopic sinus surgery."
This content was provided by Dr. Welch "My approach to patient care is to work efficiently to accurately diagnose a patient's problem and to provide them with options in line with the best available evidence and outcomes in mind. As a specialist, I use a number of tools and techniques (e.g., nasal endoscopy and cone beam imaging) to increase the accuracy of diagnosis. While these may seem unnecessary to some, these tools and techniques have been shown to minimize misdiagnosis and to improve patient care while saving money in the long run. "
