If you’re suffering with these symptoms, acceptance isn’t your only option. The right doctor can change the way you breathe and live for the better.

If you’ve been searching for a rhinology specialist in Houston, Dr. Nguyen at Houston Sinus & Allergy is here to offer the relief you need.

CT Nguyen MD, FACS: Leading ENT Expert & Educator

Dr. Cong Thu (CT) Nguyen is a Board Certified Ear, Nose and Throat – Head and Neck Surgeon who has extensive training and experience in the diseases of the ears, nose and throat. His special clinical interests include sinus diseases, snoring disorders, allergy treatment and image-guided functional endoscopic sinus surgery.

Dr. Nguyen’s 15+ years of experience have allowed him to realize that a disease may require more medical intervention and investigation rather than an immediate need for surgery. If surgical treatment is necessary, Dr. Nguyen is trained in the latest advancements in ear, nose and throat diseases and disorders. Many treatments can be done in the office and without general anesthesia allowing patients to feel better sooner.

Dr. Nguyen is recognized as a national leader in office Balloon Sinus Dilation / Balloon Sinuplasty procedures. This procedure performed in the office reopens the sinus pathways and restores drainage to deliver relief to sinusitis sufferers.  He has been appointed as a national instructor for in-office  Balloon Sinus Dilation because of his expertise. His practice, Houston Sinus and Allergy, has also been designated a Center of Excellence for its facilities and patient comfort. Surgeons travel from all over the United States to observe Dr. Nguyen perform Balloon Sinus Dilation and learn his techniques. He has performed thousands of Balloon Sinus Dilation cases. Dr. Nguyen is one of the most experienced doctors performing this procedure in the country.

At 22 years old, Dr. Nguyen received his medical degree from the University of Sherbrooke. Graduating at the top of his class, Dr. Nguyen pursued and was selected for one of the most competitive and coveted residency programs in medicine, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. He completed his general surgery internship and otolaryngology-head and neck surgery residency at the University of Montreal where he served as chief resident. During his last year of residency, he met and he fell in love with a native Texan who convinced him to follow her to the Lone Star State. Dr. Nguyen says he might not have been born in Texas but he got here as soon as he could.

Dr. Nguyen has the unique distinction of being triple-board certified in Otolaryngology.  He is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada and the College of Physicians of Quebec. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery and the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada.
