The Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery research program is a unique, truly translational bedside-bench-bedside program that is involved in improving treatment outcomes for patients in rhinology and skull base surgery.

The clinical portion of this research focuses on outcomes in surgical and medical treatment of sinusitis. A large proportion of the clinical research was built around a multi-institutional grant (Stanford, MUSC, Calgary, OHSU) from the National Institutes of Health to study treatment outcomes. More specifically, doctors Alt and Orlandi are interested in how disease severity and disease-specific quality of life measures correlate to those co-morbidities commonly associated with sinusitis including fatigue, depression, sleep, olfactory dysfunction, and pain.
