About The Book

Office-Based Rhinology conveys the principles and techniques necessary for successfully undertaking various rhinology procedures in the office setting. The procedures described will range from those commonly performed in the physician’s office (e.g. nasal endoscopy and debridement) to certain procedures often performed in the operating room for which, in certain patients, an office setting would be appropriate (e.g. nasal polypectomy and drainage of mucoceles). It also covers relevant sinonasal anatomy and radiology, proper patient selection, and appropriate room setup. Its straightforward approach makes it an easy to use reference, a must-have for practicing otolaryngologists and senior level residents.

The book comes with a DVD which includes 28 surgical videos.

About The Authors

Dr. Patel is originally from St. Louis, MO and attended the University of Missouri at Columbia for her undergraduate years, where she graduated magna cum laude. She moved to Portland, OR where she attended medical school at Oregon Health and Science University, and then to New York for residency training in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center. She then undertook a Rhinology fellowship at Stanford University in California under the mentorship of Dr. Peter Hwang, to become a specialist in Endoscopic Sinus and Skull Base Surgery. She then joined the faculty of the Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at Emory University in Atlanta, where she has taken on the role of Director of the Resident Sinus and Skull Base Dissection Course.
Dr. Patel’s clinical research interests surround evidence based Rhinology, treatment patterns for immunosuppressed patients with sinusitis, treatment outcomes in patients with sinonasal cancer, and novel instrumentation used in rhinologic procedures.
She is an active member of the American Rhinologic Society, and has served as faculty for several national and regional rhinologic meetings.
She also is beginning to take a leadership role in promoting surgical advocacy on the national level by serving on the Legislative Committee for the Board of Governors.

Dr. Wise grew up in Houston, Texas. She graduated magna cum laude from Texas A&M University with a degree in Biochemistry. Dr. Wise obtained her MD degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio in 2001. She completed residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Emory University in 2006 and Rhinology fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2007, under the direction of Dr. Rodney Schlosser. Dr. Wise is currently on the faculty of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Emory University, specializing in rhinology, allergy, and endoscopic skull base surgery. She also obtained a Master of Science in Clinical Research from Emory University in 2012. Dr. Wise serves as the Assistant Residency Program Director and Director of Resident Education and Research in the Emory Department of Otolaryngology.
She is active in the American Rhinologic Society, where she is currently a Consultant to the Board of Directors and editor of the ARS Nose News. She is also a member-at-large of the American Academy of Otolaryngologic Allergy Board of Directors.
Dr. Wise’s clinical research interests include evaluation of 3D endoscopy, clinical outcomes with sublingual immunotherapy, and office-based rhinology procedures. Her basic science research focus is intercellular junctional proteins and wound resealing in sinonasal epithelium, including their regulation of epithelial permeability, inflammatory mediator interactions, and role in the pathophysiology of nasal polyposis.

Dr. Del Gaudio was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. He attended LaSalle University, and received his medical school education at Jefferson Medical College, graduating Maxima Cum Laude. Dr. Del Gaudio completed his residency in Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery at The University of Michigan Hospitals in Ann Arbor, MI in 1995.
