The Nose and Sinuses

Nose and sinus disorders afflict millions of people, causing pain, fatigue, headache, breathing difficulties and loss of smell, among other symptoms. In fact, sinusitis alone affects about 37 million people at least once each year, making it one of the most common illnesses in the United States.

The turbinate coblation procedure reduces the size of the soft tissue of a structure in the nose called the inferior turbinate. The outpatient procedure is most helpful for patients with nasal blockage that have not responded well to treatment with nasal medications or allergy treatments. The term coblation means “Controlled ablation”. This procedure involves non-heat driven process of soft tissue dissolution using bipolar radiofrequency energy.

We treat all conditions affecting the nose and sinuses, including:

  • Acute and chronic sinus infections
  • Aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease
  • Allergies
  • Turbinate hypertrophy
  • Deviated septum
  • Nasal obstruction
  • Nosebleeds
  • Sinus headaches

Testing

Nasal endoscopy

In this procedure, a narrow tube fitted with a tiny camera (called an endoscope) is passed through both nostrils. For comfort, your nostrils will be treated with a topical anesthetic. The endoscope will help identify any swelling or blockage. Tissue samples will be taken of any abnormal growths..

CT scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan of your sinuses also may be recommended, along with a culture of any fluids draining from the nose. Blood tests may be ordered depending on your other medical conditions.

Non Invasive Evaluation

Our professionals will run a number of non-invasive physical tests to determine the cause and relative treatment option for your unique condition.

Treatments

Treatment depends upon your condition, results of diagnostic tests, and your overall medical condition.

  • Antibiotics
  • Allergy Testing
  • Combined treatments for best possible medical outcomes

We pride ourselves upon working with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs.
