Beverly Oaks Surgery physicians are skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of a broad array of issues affecting the ears, nose, throat and sinuses, including:
Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure to widen the nasal and sinus passages to improve sinus drainage so the risk and incidence of sinus infections are reduced. Sinuplasty is usually performed in patients for whom medications have failed to provide lasting and meaningful relief. The procedure uses a thin, flexible tube called a catheter, which is inserted into the nose through the nostrils. The catheter is advanced to the narrowed portion of the sinuses, and then a tiny balloon is deployed at the end of the catheter and inflated to gently compress surrounding tissues and widen the nasal passages. The procedure usually takes about a half hour to perform, and nasal polyps may be removed at the same time. Following the procedure, swelling and bruising may occur, but typically resolve within one to two weeks.
The septum is the thin partition that separates the nose into a left and right half. Usually, the septum is straight or nearly straight to facilitate normal breathing. But sometimes, the septum leans to one side resulting in a condition known as a deviated septum. People with deviated septums have difficulty breathing through the nose and may also experience frequent nosebleeds. During a septoplasty procedure, incisions are made into the septum so it can be repositioned centrally to enable normal breathing through the nose. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes from 30 to 90 minutes to perform, depending on the approach.
