The physicians at Midwest Ear Nose and Throat continue to work hard at practicing the safest and most effective allergy possible. Injecting patients with the highest concentrations of what they are allergic to can be dangerous. We are constantly evaluating our antigens, techniques, and safety protocols. We routinely recertify our staff in ACLS and review our emergency protocols. After five years of Otolaryngic Allergy training at the University of Missouri, Dr. Todd passed his oral and written exams to attain Fellowship status in the American Academy of Otolaryngology. The University of Missouri is unique in that the Otolaryngology Department provides all the Allergy care and all the primary care residency programs rotate through for their training. Otolaryngology is the oldest Specialty recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Allergy is a core part of the curriculum at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
The AmericanAcademy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA) was founded in 1941, and is one of the oldest and most experienced organizations in dealing with issues relating to allergic disorders. As a professional association, the AAOA represents over 2000 Board certified otolaryngologists and other health care providers who devote part of their practice to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic and other related disorders. As otolaryngologists, members have a unique expertise in the medical and surgical treatment of sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, and related disorders. We are better because we can treat the tissues allergy effects with medications, immunotherapy, and surgery.
