Nasal and sinus disorders including: sinusitis, acute or chronic sinus infections, epistaxis (nose bleeds), nasal congestion or obstruction, deviated septum, post-nasal drainage, runny nose, abnormal sense of smell, sinus headache/facial pressure, nasal polyps.
All of our offices are equipped with specialized nasal and sinus endoscopic technology in order to most effectively visualize the source of the nasal issues and offer appropriate treatment.
We have expertise in the medical treatment of all nasal conditions. If medical therapy is ineffective or not appropriate, we can offer a variety of surgical options. These include septoplasty (correction of a deviated septum to improve breathing), turbinate reduction, removal of nasal masses and polyps, and sinus surgery.
Sinus surgery traditionally involves enlarging the openings between the nose and the sinuses to allow better drainage, pressure relief, and reduction of infection and sinusitis. We do all sinus surgery endoscopically, with no incisions on the face or nose. Cutting-edge navigation systems (such as Medronic’s FUSION) can be used for complex cases to assure complete treatment and prevent complications or injury to surrounding structures. In additional to Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, we are pleased to also offer Balloon Sinuplasty.
Many nasal procedures can be performed in the office including nasal biopsies and cultures, polyp or mass excision, cauterization of epistaxis, and Balloon Sinuplasty.
Balloon Sinus Dilation
Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology is a FDA-cleared, endoscopic, catheter-based system for patients suffering from sinusitis. The technology uses a small, flexible, Sinus Balloon Catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage and function. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.
