Dr. Sidle is one of the leading septo-rhinoplasty surgeons at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Because of his double board certification by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, he is often consulted by other surgeons in cases of unsatisfactory rhinoplasty outcomes. These are especially difficult cases as both appearance and breathing of the nose can be affected. Dr. Sidle has accepted cases from all over the country, and has even performed revision rhinoplasty on patients whose original surgery was performed outside the U.S.
