Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

The goal of functional endoscopic sinus surgery is to restore the natural physiologic drainage to the sinuses and allow for topical medications to treat the sinuses. 

 

Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy

Endoscopic DCR is treatment for epiphora (watery eyes) caused by lacrimal system obstruction that does not require any external incisions. 

 

Endoscopic Orbital Decompression

Endoscopic orbital decompression is surgical treatment for Graves ophthalmoplegia secondary to hyperthyroidism

 

CSF Leak Repair

Spinal fluid leaks into the nose may occur spontaneously or secondary to trauma. They can typically be repaired endoscopically through the nose in order to prevent the development of meningitis. 

 

Septoplasty

If nasal obstruction is caused by a severe septal deviation, an endoscopic septoplasty may be a surgical cure. 

 

Balloon Sinuplasty

In select patients, in an office procedure may be available to dilate the sinus drainage pathways as a treatment for recurrent or chronic sinusitis. 

 

In-Office Polypectomy

For patients with recurrent nasal polyps, an office office polyp removal may be a possible treatment option. 

 

Culture Directed Antibiotic Therapy

In an effort to avoid further antibiotic resistance, our practice focuses on treating sinusitis with endoscopic culture directed therapy. 

 

Vasomotor Rhinitis Surgery

In cases of vasomotor or non-allergic rhinitis (runny nose) that respond to topical therapies, an outpatient, surgical treatment may be an option. 

 

Endoscopic Choanal Atresia Repair

In patients who have genetic choanal atresia or narrowing, an endoscopic primary or revision repair can relieve nasal obstruction.
