I had chronic sinus infections and have avoided sinus surgery for 20 yrs. But I took antibiotics all the time & never got better. We "lucked' in to Dr. Traikovich and his incredible staff via a referral from the Midwestern U Clinic doctors for my husband, a very picky guy. He returned from his first visit saying "I love this guy...he even looked at my skin!" Curious as to why an ENT would look at skin I found that he is Both a Board Cert. ENT & Plastic Surgeon - a rare combo. I had the sinus surgery and for the 1st time in my life I take no allergy medicine!! I cked around b/4 surg & heard that Traikovich "has hands that other surgeons talk about." Meaning: he's fast & accurate & conservative. Plus when he came to see me in pre-op at the hosp I overheard one of the nurses say "He's my favorite." His staff is amazing. If you call you talk to a person; very responsive and upbeat staff. Office very organized. You may wait a few mins but that's b/c he spends time w/ his patients. Susan, his wife, is the captain of the ship; bright, thorough and skilled. It's obvious they just all really care about their patients. I haven't had any plastic surgery done but amongst his 'skin' & 'ENT' patients in the wait room there were several men women that look pleased w/ whatever he's done to them. What a treasure! And I was sooo scared after the sinus surgery horror stories. But now I can smell and breathe and no drugs! I should have gotten a price on a new nose while he was up there.
