Adult Treatments

Balloon Sinuplasty

Placement of a small balloon catheter in the natural sinus openings into the nose to enable natural airflow and sinus drainage. This procedure, in most cases, is done with the straightening of the center wall of the nose (Nasal Septoplasty) and shrinking of the membranes of the nasal side wall (Turbinate Reduction).


Natural sinus drainage, improved breathing, and lessening infections. Improved air and sinus passages that reduce the need for Over-the-Counter medications and antibiotics.

Eustachain Tube Dilation

Facial pain and pressure with ear popping, often worsened with altitude change and flying.


Balloon catheter dilation and opening of the Eustachian Tube (the opening of the ear tube through the nose); Often blocked with allergies and sinus infections.


Crooked central dividing cartilage of the nose causing snoring, obstructive drainage, and nose blockage.


Improve breathing, decrease snoring and lessen sinus and nose infections

Turbinate Reduction

Blocked membranes causing stuffiness and post-nasal drip


Improves breathing and reduces drip and congestion.

This method of turbinate reduction can be done with minimal invasive radiofrequency wands or, if severe, using a low-impact surgical technique called “Submucosal Resection of the Turbinates”. A condition in the past called “Empty nose syndrome” is related to the aggressive removal of these membranes.

Our technique reduces the turbinates enough to open the passage and lessen drip. We hardly remove the turbinate membranes unless obstructed severely by polyps or tumors.

Nasal Valve Collapse

The collapse of the lower cartilages of the nose while breathing in can be with
breathing-inspiratory collapse or complete collapse of both nostrils during quiet breathing and heavy nose breathing-inspiration.


Severe obstruction needs cartilage grafted from the patients own tissue – this is often combined with Deviation Septum surgery, also known as, Septoplasty and can be combined with a Rhinoplasty for cosmetic improvement.

(Septorhinoplasty) Spirox Graft is for a minimal collapse

Minimally invasive placement of a half toothpick-sized implant that dissolves. Spirox Graft is placed on the nose side wall and prevents the dynamic collapse of the nostrils when breathing in. A lesser collapse can be improved with radiofrequency.


The flapping of the soft palate causes snoring. Associated with fatigue, tiredness, restlessness, shaking legs during sleep, can also be associated with sleep apnea.


Lessens the snoring and works well for mild sleep apnea. This must be diagnosed with a home or in-lab sleep study. An 80% reduction in snoring, 90% improvement in marriage.
