Sinus Overview

Sinus

Sinusitis is a widespread condition affecting 37 million Americans. This inflammation of the sinuses occurs when the sinus opening becomes blocked, preventing mucus from draining properly. It causes cold-like symptoms that include congestion, runny nose, sore throat, facial pain and swelling, loss of smell or taste, bad breath, fatigue and headache.

Treatments include:

  • Medication
  • Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS)
  • Image guided surgery
  • Balloon Sinuplasty
  • Septoplasty
  • Turbinate surgery

Determine the Cause of Your Sinus Symptoms

Balloon Sinuplasty

This minimally invasive surgical solution is a safe and effective method of enlarging your sinus passages for easier breathing and a drastic reduction in sinusitis symptoms.

Benefits of In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty:

  • Local Anesthesia
  • Fast Recovery
  • Comfortable Surroundings
  • High Patient Satisfaction
  • Potential for Significant Cost Savings

Propel Sinus Implant

The Propel steroid-releasing implant is an alternative treatment for patients experiencing chronic sinus infections. It targets the inflamed sinus tissues directly, opening them up for improved drainage and a reduction in symptoms.

The implant resembles a spring and delivers a measured dose of mometasone furoate, an anti-inflammatory steroid that gradually dissolves. It is completely absorbed by the body four to six weeks after implantation.
