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 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.
If nasal obstruction is caused by a severe septal deviation, an endoscopic septoplasty may be a surgical cure.
In select patients, in an office procedure may be available to dilate the sinus drainage pathways as a treatment for recurrent or chronic sinusitis.
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.
