The National Sinus Institute (NSI) was founded in Los Alamos. NM in 2009, with the vision of bringing health care to all New Mexicans, including rural areas where specialists are scarce. We welcome patients of all ages from pediatric to adult and treat all general Ear, Nose and Throat needs, including:
- Sleep disorders & snoring

- Hearing loss
- Nasal congestion
- Neck lump and/or mass
- Otitis media & otitis externa
- Persistent cough
Owner and founder, Dr. Ian Alexander, Otolaryngologist, is one of the top sinus surgeons in the country and a leading authority on Balloon sinus dilation. This is a minimally invasive treatment option that can be performed in the office, dependent on the patient’s insurance. Balloon sinus dilation is to reshapes the anatomy to open sinus pathways so they can drain properly. The procedure uses a small balloon 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.
NSI has expanded to nine clinics around the New Mexico and Texas (Albuquerque, Española, Hobbs, Las Cruces, Los Alamos, Rio Rancho, Roswell and Taos, NM and Boerne, TX) to bring ENT care directly to our patients. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at 1.855.81.SINUS.
We accept most insurances.
