Treatment for Allergies
Allergies can be caused by a wide number of factors and result in itching, sneezing and/or swelling.
Sinusitis is inflammation or infection of the lining of the sinus cavities and may require surgery.
This condition is a misalignment of the bone between each nasal cavity and can cause breathing difficulty.
Traditional Sinus Surgery
The goal of sinus surgery is to increase the airflow of the inflamed or blocked airways by enlarging the sinuses. This will allow airways to drain more effectively.
Sinus Surgery Options at Madison ENT
If sinus pain or sinusitis can’t be treated with medication, Madison ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery may suggest sinus surgery. Surgery might be an appropriate response if:
- Acute sinusitis hasn’t responded to other treatments, like antibiotics.
- You have a chronic sinus infection, an infection that lasts eight weeks or longer.
- You suffer from recurring sinus infections.
- You suffer from a nasal obstruction which can’t be dislodged conventionally
- Nasal polyps or sinus allergies have caused swelling of the sinuses.
Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatments
Sleep apnea affects the way a person breathes while sleeping and is potentially life threatening.
Nasal polyps are benign tumors that grow in the nasal passage and can affect normal function.
Balloon sinuplasty is a safe and effective procedure that allows the surgeon to open inflamed sinuses in a less invasive manner than traditional sinus surgery.
PROPEL Sinus Stent
Clinically proven to improve the results of sinus surgery, the PROPEL Sinus Stent keeps the sinuses open after surgery and delivers anti-inflammatory medicine directly to the sinuses.
Chronic rhinitis is frequent inflammation of the nose with symptoms such as a runny nose, nasal congestion and post-nasal drip (mucus in the throat). The ClariFix® Cryotherapy device goes straight to the source of the symptoms – the out-of-balance nerves.
