Dr. Alt’s clinical practice is focused on sinus and nasal diseases including management of acute and chronic sinusitis, polyps, allergy, septal deviation, growths and tumors of the sinuses and skull base, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks. Dr. Alt works with a large multi-disciplinary team that consists of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, head and neck pathologists, and specialized otolaryngology (ENT) cancer surgeons to ensure the best treatment outcomes. In addition to his clinical practice, he is actively involved in research and is a co-investigator on a multi-institutional grant from the National Institutes of Health to study treatment outcomes for sinus disease. He is also interested in examining the relationship between the immune system’s inflammatory markers and chronic sinusitis-specific disease severity; thereby further elucidating how microscopic aspects of disease relate to macroscopic clinical measures. He currently serves as a faculty member in Head and Neck Surgery and is the Associate Director of the Rhinology-Sinus and Skull Base Surgery Program at the University of Utah.
