Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon sinuplasty is a quick and simple endoscopic procedure that opens and reshapes sinus passages without removing tissue or bone. Sinuplasty operates by enlarging sinus passages with a balloon to open up drainage pathways. The balloon is filled with saline and fitted onto a small catheter which is inserted into the opening of the problem sinus. Once the balloon is inside, it is dilated for about 5-10 seconds. This enlarges the sinus opening up to six times its normal size, allowing it to drain and ventilate freely.

Endoscopic Septoplasty

Endoscopic Septoplasty is a minimally invasive technique for the correction of septal deviation. An endoscope is inserted into the nose to provide a visual aspect of the nasal passage. A small incision is made into the area of the deviation to separate the mucosa and to readjust any cartilage, bone, or spur that is causing issues. Once the blockage has been repaired, the mucosa is replaced. This procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia.

Turbinate Reduction

Swollen turbinates, found inside the nose, can cause pressure, congestion, and breathing difficulty. This quick, painless, office-based procedure shrinks the turbinates and provides years of relief from congestion, pressure, and drainage issues as well as treatment for snoring and sleep apnea.

Soft Palate Tightening (UPPP)

Soft Palate Tightening or UPPP (short for Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty) treats snoring issues related to abnormal mouth anatomy by removing/repositioning excess tissue from the soft palate, as well as shortening the uvula. While every procedure is different, each involves a combination of tissue removal and tightening performed under brief sedation in office.
