Jayant Pinto, MD
Jayant Pinto, MD, is a specialist in sinus and nasal diseases, including chronic sinusitis, allergic rhinitis and olfactory dysfunction. He is also an expert in minimally invasive sinus surgery and endoscopic treatments of related eye diseases (e.g., excessive tearing, Grave’s disease) as well as tumors of the nose and anterior skull base. Dr. Pinto treats common conditions of the head and neck, such as sleep apnea, deviated nasal septum, enlarged turbinates and snoring.

Dr. Pinto’s research focuses on microbial, environmental, genetic and demographic factors that underlie susceptibility to nasal diseases. He directs innovative clinical trials for chronic sinusitis, allergies, olfactory disorders, and aging of the ear, nose and throat.
