Arthur Wu, MD
As the head of the Beverly Hills Sinus Institute and Co-Director of the Cedars-Sinai Sinus Center of Excellence, Dr. Wu has a passion for helping patients with nasal and sinus problems. His advanced training has given him the skills to treat the most difficult of sinus cases. A large volume of his patients are those that have had failed medical treatment in the past or have had previous unsuccessful sinus surgery.
Dr. Wu has a particular interest in chronic sinusitis, nasal polyposis, sinonasal tumors, endoscopic eye and orbital surgery, and endoscopic skull base surgery. Dr. Wu’s goal is to avoid surgery if possible, but he and his team are not deterred by the most difficult of cases. In those cases, Dr. Wu performs surgery that optimizes further medical management to prevent disease recurrence. He also treats complex skull base disorders such as pituitary tumors, cerebrospinal fluid leaks, chordomas, and benign and malignant tumors of the nose, sinuses, nasopharynx, eye and orbit. These challenging cases are often handled in collaboration with physicians from multiple other specialties to ensure the best possible outcome.

He earned his medical doctorate from Duke University School of Medicine in North Carolina and completed his residency training in Otolaryngology at the University of California, Los Angeles.
