We perform the full spectrum of nasal and sinus surgery, including the procedures below:

Surgery for sinus and nasal disorders:

  • Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Open and endoscopic treatments, including extensive experience with revision surgeries, for various chronic sinonasal conditions (chronic sinusitis, polyposis, allergic fungal sinusitis/inverted papilloma)
  • In office procedures including: balloon sinuplasty, polypectomy, eustachian tube balloon dilation, lysis of adhesions, Latera® implant, Inferior turbinate ablation
  • Endoscopic vidian neurectomy for chronic rhinitis
  • Endoscopic ligation of Internal maxillary/sphenopalatine/anterior ethmoid artery for chronic nose bleeding/epistaxis
  • Piezosurgery: A relatively new technology helps address this challenge by generating sound waves and small vibrations to remove bone. This technology is called piezosurgery or ultrasonic bone aspiration
  • Septoplasty
  • Turbinoplasty

Endoscopic surgery for blocked tear ducts and orbital decompression for Grave’s related eye disease:

  • Endoscopic treatment of thyroid eye disease (proptosis), medial and inferior orbital decompression
  • Endoscopic treatment of blocked tear duct (Dacryocystorhinostomy procedure)
  • Endoscopic orbital/optic nerve decompression

Multi-level surgery for obstructive sleep apnea:

  • Nonsurgical/office treatments for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): Injection snoreplasty, Palatal implants (Pillar Implant©), Latera® implant, Somnoplasty of the tongue/palate/inferior turbinate
  • Trans-Oral Robotic Surgery: A new and promising use for moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. In these cases, Trans-Oral Robotic Surgery is used to reduce the size of the tongue and the back of the throat to improve airflow and breathing. Compared with traditional open surgical options, Trans-Oral Robotic Surgery provides improved visualization and access to such difficult-to- access areas. This often translates into less pain and swelling after the surgery.
  • Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)
  • Midline/partial glossectomy
  • Genial tubercle advancement
