Balloon Sinuplasty

When prolonged, chronic and recurring sinus infections don’t improve, a balloon sinuplasty is a viable option. This minimally-invasive procedure uses a tiny balloon to open blocked sinus passages, allowing them to drain. Once the sinuses are open, they may also be irrigated. This procedure has a track record of successfully treating patients, resulting in long-lasting benefits and immediate relief.

Turbinate Reduction

Treating chronic infections, severe allergies and obstructed breathing with the nose, the goal of turbinate reduction surgery is to shrink the size of the turbinates without removing too much tissue. In most cases, turbinate reductions are successful at opening the airways and making breathing easier.

Clarifix is a minimally invasive treatment that targets the source of your chronic rhinitis symptoms, for lasting relief.

Clarifix is used to decrease rhinorrhea or postnasal drip complaints, with localized freezing of overactive nerves in the back of the nose and decreases snot production in 2-6 weeks.

The benefits of these in-office procedures include:

  • Minimal recovery time and post-treatment care for most patients
  • May provide immediate and/or long-lasting symptom relief
  • Cost-effective and convenient
  • Safe and clinically proven treatment options for those who have not responded well to traditional methods of treatment
