Chronic sinus issues can inhibit your enjoyment of everyday activities. The sinuses are small hollow passageways that encircle the eyes and nose. These cavities are lined with mucous that keeps the area well-hydrated. Sinuses help to filter the air that passes through the nose as it moves down to the lungs. When the mucus within the sinuses can’t properly drain, it can cause an obstruction that leads to infection and chronic discomfort.

Treatments Available

  • Balloon sinuplasty
  • Surgery for nasal polyps and chronic sinusitis
  • Septoplasty (deviated septum surgery)
  • Nasal turbinate reduction
  • In-office CT imaging

Procedures Offered

Balloon Sinuplasty

During this procedure, a small balloon is placed within the blocked nasal cavity and inflated, gently widening the passageway. This leads to improved nasal drainage and a decrease in sinus pressure. Balloon sinuplasty is ideal for treating chronic infections, breathing difficulties, and tension headaches.

Chronic Sinusitis Treatment

When the sinuses have been inflamed for three months or more, it is considered chronic sinusitis. This is one of the most common sinus conditions affecting patients. In many cases, this chronic condition does not respond to home remedies or medication and is best treated with a surgical procedure. During the procedure, nasal polyps and tissue will be removed to allow the sinuses to drain regularly.

Septoplasty (Deviated Septum Surgery)

The septum is a thin strip of cartilage and bone that separates the nostrils. When the septum is curved, bent, or crooked, it can block off one side of the nose, compromising your breathing. Through septoplasty, our ENT doctors can restore clear passageways in both nostrils.

Nasal Turbinate Reduction

Nasal turbinates purify the air as it passes through the nose. When these tiny helpers become swollen or infected, they can cause breathing problems and discomfort. Our caring practitioners can perform surgery to remove the turbinates so that relief from pain is swift.

In-Office CT Imaging

CT imaging can help our doctors to visualize what is causing the obstruction inside your sinuses. By using advanced technology to better view these hidden passageways within the face, our team can delve into abnormalities that may be causing your symptoms. We can then recommend a treatment plan based on our findings.

Surgery for Nasal Polyps and Chronis Sinusitis 

When the sinuses have been swollen and inflamed for over 90 days, it is considered chronic sinusitis. If the condition has not responded to medication, surgery may be an ideal option for relieving your symptoms. During the procedure, our ENT specialists will remove nasal polyps and tissue that is blocking efficient breathing and drainage.

ClariFix 

ClariFix is a clinically proven, minimally-invasive treatment that safely targets the source of sinusitis to provide lasting relief. ClariFix uses cold therapy to interrupt the signals to the nerves that are telling it to swell and drip. Thus, the runny, stuffy nose symptoms are reduced. The short but effective ClariFix procedure requires only a local anesthetic and requires minimal downtime and recovery.

VivAer

Clinically proven to help 94% of patients breathe more easily, the VivAer device is gently placed into your nose to help lift and remodel swollen tissues with temperature-controlled radiofrequency. This opens the nasal airways and improves airflow, allowing you to breathe more easily. The short VivAer procedure requires no downtime, and recovery is quite minimal.

RhinAer

Utilizing low-temperature radiofrequency energy that is emitted through a small tube, the RhinAer procedure disrupts the nerve fibers that trigger a runny nose. The flexible tube is placed into the nasal passageway, where it stops the nerve fibers from sending signals to cause congestion. Clinically proven to improve symptoms in 96% of patients, the RhinAer procedure requires no downtime.
