Balloon Sinuplasty (or balloon sinus dilation) is an in-office treatment option which allows sinus patients to experience meaningful improvement by treating the root cause of the recurrent infection. The procedure utilizes a tiny balloon to dilate and remodel the opening of the sinus cavity, allowing your sinuses to drain and ventilate more effectively. Learn how Balloon Sinuplasty works.
Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to treat a deviated septum, which can cause a persistent stuffy nose. This procedure typically lasts 10-15 minutes and is performed in-office with intravenous sedation at our clinics. A septoplasty is performed internally, requiring no external incisions. No nasal packing or splinting is required. No external nasal swelling or bruising results from this procedure. Patients typically return to their normal routine between 1-2 days.
Turbinate hypertrophy is one of the most common causes of a stuffy nose, or nasal obstruction. There are a number of potential causes of turbinate hypertrophy, including allergies and chronic sinus infections. Several methods of reducing the turbinates can provide permanent and dramatic improvement in nasal breathing. This procedure lasts around 5-minutes and can be performed in-office procedure with or without intravenous sedation. Learn more about turbinates in your nasal cavity.
Nasal valve issues manifest in persistent nasal congestion/stuffiness, which is often worse at night or during exercise and caused by weakness in the sidewalls of the nose which collapse inward as you breathe. It may involve one or both sides of the nose, and can result from trauma or previous surgery.
Nasal polyps are growths in the lining of the nasal and sinus cavity, causing congestion, loss of smell, and sinus pressure. In order to achieve long-term resolution, treatment often requires removal of the polyps and treatment of underlying allergies. This procedure is performed in-office with intravenous sedation usually providing an immediate and dramatic improvement in breathing and sense of smell. Learn how enlarged polyps can be affecting your health.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the shape of the nose and underlying structural issues related to the sinus. This procedure is performed in-office with intravenous sedation and may be paired with other sinus procedures.
Chronic rhinorrhea is a condition that causes a constant runny and stuffy nose for what seems like no apparent reason. This condition is caused by inflammation in the nasal airways that results in too much mucus secretion and congestion. Clarifix™ is a simple in-office procedure provides relief from this condition and reduces the need to use sinus and allergy medication. Patients are back to their normal activities the next day.
The nasal valve area is the narrowest part of the nasal airway. It's the most common site of nasal obstruction and accounts for 2/3 of nasal airway resistance. This procedure increases airflow by opening the "front door of the nose," making it easier for the patient to breathe. Vivaer is completely non-invasive and performed in the office with local anesthesia in about 15 minutes. Patients usually return to normal activity the next day and can expect immediate improvement in congestion symptoms.
