Nose Procedures

 

Our practice includes general ear, nose, and throat, head and neck diseases and surgeries, cosmetic surgery, robotic procedures, in-office balloon sinuplasty, allergy treatment, and hearing solutions. We concentrate our training and experience in these areas to provide the best possible medical care for our patients.

Nose Procedures:

Adenoidectomy

The adenoids are removed due to chronic infection. Adenoidectomy is commonly done in conjunction with Myringotomy Tube placement and tonsillectomy, and is done as an outpatient procedure.

Balloon Sinuplasty

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

This is a way of doing sinus surgery using telescopes to aid the visualization of the sinuses. This makes sinus surgery safer, more precise, and less invasive. Sinus surgery is indicated for patients with chronic sinus infection that has not responded to intensive antibiotic therapy. This is generally done as outpatient surgery, and the patient may return to work after four or five days.

Nasal Valve Repair With Latera

The LATERA nasal implant is used to support upper and lower lateral cartilage in the nose, reinforcing the nasal wall like traditional cartilage and polymer grafts. Supporting the cartilage in this manner may reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and help patients breathe better. The LATERA implant showed significant quality of life improvement for nasal obstruction patients with lateral wall or nasal valve collapse.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is the surgical re-shaping of the nasal bones and cartilage to achieve an improvement in external appearance. It may be performed in conjunction with other nasal procedures including septoplasty to improve the nasal air passages.

Septoplasty

Also called nasoseptal reconstruction. This is a procedure to straighten the nasal septum (the midline partition of the nose) in patients who are having chronic nasal congestion due to a deviated septum. The procedure is done in the operating room with the patient asleep, and generally does not cause any bruising, or change the appearance of the nose. The patient can return to work in four or five days.

Turbinates

The nasal turbinates are comprised of three or four structures which serve the function of warming, humidifying, and filtering the air that we breathe. Abnormalities in the turbinates often result in congestion, as occurs with the common cold and allergies. Structural changes in the turbinates such as concha bullosa and choanal atresia can also result in symptoms. When severe, surgery (turbinate reduction) may be necessary to reduce symptoms and restore function to this part of our anatomy.
