We are screening patients depending on the age and medical status of each patient.  We are reducing our clinic schedule in an effort to reduce wait times, therefore minimizing the number of patients in our reception area. We ask that capable adults arrive alone and children be accompanied by only one guardian.

    Balloon Sinuplasty

    Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms. Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removalof bone and tissue.

    VIVAER Nasal Airway Remodeling

    VIVAER uses a small handpiece in the office to reshape the tissue inside the nose in the nasal valve region to improve airflow, without any incisions.  Clinical studies have shown that 92% of patients notice an improvement in breathing after VIVAER.
