See our offerings below.
Endoscopic sinus surgery
With the use of small cameras (endoscopes) through the nose and small instruments to open sinuses, inflamed tissue or tumors are removed, allowing you to go home on the same day. Similar conditions that we treat include chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia/nose bleeds, and benign and malignant nasal tumors. We also provide revision sinus surgery.
Endoscopic skull base surgery
Using endoscopic techniques to access the bones that separate the brain from the nose, we repair any defects and/or remove any tumors if present. For example, CSF leaks (fluid from around the brain leaking into the nose) and skull base tumors like chordomas.
Endoscopic orbital surgery
This involves using the endoscopic techniques (which are minimally invasive) in conjunction with an ophthalmologist, treating Graves’ disease with an endoscopic orbital decompression. The bone around the eye can be removed, relieving the pressure so the eye doesn’t bulge out or by removing tumors behind the eye.
This is a minimally invasive endoscopic correction of a deviated nasal septum. The deviation is often the result of trauma to the nose at some point in your life, resulting in a bent septum that blocks breathing through the nose. A same-day surgery corrects it without causing any cuts or bruises to the face.
Trans-nasal pituitary surgery
In conjunction with neurosurgeons
This is for small tumors in the brain that can be accessed through the nose, therefore, avoiding open surgery on the brain.
Turbinate surgery for persistent nasal congestion
A common procedure that can be done awake or asleep to reduce the size of enlarged turbinates that blocks the nose and contributes to post-nasal drips.
Balloon sinuplasty for in-office awake sinus procedures
Balloon catheters are inserted into the sinuses where the balloons are inflated, gently opening the sinuses. This allows us to quickly open your sinuses in-office and get you back to your daily routine the same day.
ClariFix Cryotherapy Procedure for Chronic Rhinitis
This is an in-office procedure with minimal recovery time performed using the ClariFix treatment and an endoscope that is inserted into the back of the nose to reach the inflamed nerves. Cold therapy is initiated and lasts a few minutes, causing a slight pressure and a cooling sensation to relieve your nasal symptoms.
