Ashley Sikand, MD, FACS
Dr. Ashley Sikand developed the Nevada Sinus Center to create a health care facility dedicated to diagnosing and treating sinus disorders. The genesis of the Nevada Sinus Center evolved from the research and publications that Dr. Sikand has conducted in the area of minimally invasive treatment for sinusitis. This has centered around office-based treatment techniques including balloon sinus dilation. Dr. Sikand published one of the first articles on office-based sinus procedures in September of 2011 (Operative Techniques in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery). A large multicenter study involving 203 patients was published in May of 2013 this was followed in March 2015 with an extensive publication (Annals of otology, rhinology, and laryngology). In addition to pioneering office-based and less invasive techniques, Dr. Sikand has made presentations at numerous meetings within the specialty. He has served as a panel expert, consultant and physician trainer specific to these methods of treating sinus disease. Currently, the Nevada Sinus Center continues to conduct research and is involved in nationwide studies for advanced sinus treatment techniques.
Founded on research that verifies and validates effectiveness of treatment, the overriding philosophy at the Nevada Sinus Center is to customize a treatment plan for each individual patient. This starts with a detailed diagnostic process that begins with the history of each patient’s condition. Beyond the history, our facility is equipped with endoscopy equipment and on-site CT imaging capability to develop a clear diagnosis and understanding of a patient’s sinus problem. Our mission is to set the standard for superlative partnered patient care.
Dr. Sikand began his college and medical education at the University of Alberta, completing his residency training at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He served his fellowship at the California Ear Institute at Stanford. Dr. Sikand is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor (Adjunct Faculty) at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
