Pediatric Conditions

Pediatric Conditions:

  • Bedwetting
  • Hyperactivity
  • Snoring
  • Sinusitis
  • Sinus Headaches
  • Sinus drainage and cough
  • Chronic cough and wheeze
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath)
  • Inability to taste and smell
  • Open mouth breathing
  • Poor articulation and high arched palate affecting speech
  • Pediatric Obesity (the need for carbs to overcome the chronic fatigue)
  • Weight Gain
  • Ear Infection
  • Obstructive Adenoids/Tonsils causing poor eating habits
  • Pediatric weight loss and appetite loss from obstructive tonsils, adenoids
  • Nasal Turbinates in the nose
  • Chronic runny nose and thick nasal mucus
  • Foul smelling nasal mucus
  • Headaches in children


Most conventional therapy resolves around the use of antibiotic medications for obstructive adenoids, tonsils & nasal turbinates. This may be effective in removing offending bacteria yet often the bugs get resistant to antibiotic therapy and colonize the host tissue (Strep carrier, Staph Carrier).

Curative therapy comes in the form of removal of tonsils/adenoids – Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy, however this may only address the throat and back of the nose issues.

Sinus and nose symptom cures come from gentle opening of the sinuses (balloon sinuplasty) in conjunction with turbinate reduction often done in conjunction with Adenotonsillectomy.


  • Remove the living area of the Staph and strep bacteria with removal of the tonsils and adenoids opens the back of the nose, throat and removes the home the bacteria.
  • Benefits: Remove sick tissue, blocking tissue, open the airway and breathing passages, enabling better speech, swallowing, breathing, articulation, enjoyment of food and the lessening of chronic cough.

Balloon Sinuplasty

  • Content: Small micro balloons used under endoscopic guidance to open the natural drainage pathways of the sinuses into the nose, this is often done in conjunction with sinus cultures and irrigation, Minimally invasive and mostly done without the need for painful packing of the nose.
  • Benefits: Opening the natural air passages, cleaning the sinuses and allowing airflow back into the nose and sinuses.

Nose septoplasty

  • Straightening the central cartilage of the nose in order for the nose to breathe well and enable clear flow of air to the sinuses.

Turbinate Reduction

  • The side fingerlike membranes of the nose that swell during allergy, infection and sometimes with the overuse of nasal medicine
  • Benefits: minimally invasive radio frequency reduction of the nose membranes.


  • Benefits: Low impact, relatively painless, opens airway

Nasal Valve Collapse

  • Nose tip collapse from weak cartilage – may be after trauma or crookedness of the nose.
  • Benefits: strengthening of the tip using dissolvable ‘toothpicks’ place longitudinally under the skin or using septum cartilage in the worst cases.

Spirox Graft (Latera)

  • Low impact, painless, safe and not visible externally
  • The grafts dissolve over a few weeks leaving strong fibrous scar tissue

Obesity lessening

  • Childhood obesity with removal of tonsil and adenoids decreases rapidly due to improved airway, improved exercise tolerance, decreased needs for sugar, overall improvement in self esteem.
