Ian Alexander, MD of Otolaryngology, is one of the top sinus surgeons in
the country and a leading authority on sinus dilation. This minimally
invasive treatment option can be performed in the office, if insurance
allows. Sinus dilation reshapes the anatomy to open sinus pathways so
they can drain properly. The procedure uses a tool placed in key places
in the nose and sinus, which are then dilated to expand the sinus pathways.
It may be an effective, lasting option for patients who have suffered
for years with chronic sinus pain and infection.
Dr. Alexander completed his undergraduate work at Brigham Young University,
after which he attended medical school at the University of New Mexico.
He did his residency at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA.
Dr. Alexander founded the National Sinus Institute in New Mexico in 2009,
which has grown to include eight clinics in New Mexico (Albuquerque, Española,
Hobbs, Los Alamos, Rio Rancho, Roswell, Taos, and Las Cruces, NM) and
our first of many Texas clinics in Boerne, TX, comprised of six ENT surgeons
and mid-level providers (Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners).
Dr. Alexander and his wife have 3 children and reside in Boerne, TX. Dr.
Alexander enjoys mixed martial arts, fly fishing, and bodybuilding.
