As experts in ENT, audiology, and allergy testing, we are equipped to care for those struggling with:
Chronic Sinus Disease & Sinusitis
Sinusitis is defined as the inflammation or swelling of the sinus’s tissue lining. While healthy sinuses are filled with air, they can become blocked and full of fluid. When this happens, germs are prone to grow, which can lead to an infection. Sinusitis can be characterized as either acute (which generally lasts around 10 days, but can last up to 4 weeks, usually occurring following a cold or the flu) or chronic (greater than 3 months in duration, usually resulting from constant nasal irritation by allergens or anatomic obstruction).
Allergies & Allergy Testing
Deviated Nasal Septum
If the nasal congestion cannot be managed medically, or if the deviation is too significant, the nasal septum needs to be moved back to the middle with a surgical procedure. This surgery is done entirely through the nose, does not require any external incisions, and will not affect the external shape or appearance of the nose. If appropriate, this surgery can often be performed in conjunction with endoscopic sinus surgery.
Dizziness & Vertigo
Pediatric Ear, Nose, Throat
Sore Throat & Tonsillitus
Adenoids, located in a region of the body called the nasopharynx (at the very back of the nose), are a normal anatomic part in children and young adults. They can become enlarged or infected, and can lead to snoring, disrupted sleep, nasal congestion, chronic runny nose, and can also be associated with recurring ear infections.
The tonsils and adenoids are removed through the mouth, with no external incisions, and can be excised either individually or simultaneously, depending on the needs of the patient.
Ear Aches & Infections
Thyroid & Vocal Cord Conditions
Nodules can develop in the thyroid gland, which are often silent and discovered incidentally, though some are noticed as a lump in the neck, or can cause difficulty swallowing or breathing. Most thyroid nodules are benign, but up to 10% can be malignant (cancerous), requiring biopsy and possibly thyroid surgery.
Acid Reflux Disease, GERD & LPR
Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Removal of Foreign Body From Ear Or Nose
Foreign bodies of the ear or nose most often involve young children, but can happen to adults as well. Common foreign bodies include rocks, beads, toys, household items, food or candy, cotton Q-tip ends, and even insects. Foreign bodies of the ear or nose should be removed as soon as their presence is discovered, because leaving them inside the body can result in both immediate and long-term health problems.
Our ENT physicians are capable of locating and removing most foreign bodies of the ear and nose in the office. Successful removal depends on various circumstances, including the foreign body’s location, the shape and consistency of the foreign body, and the patient’s cooperation. If the foreign body is particularly troublesome or the patient is particularly uncooperative, the use of a surgical facility and/or surgical procedure may be necessary to successfully remove the foreign body.
Foreign bodies of the throat (known as pharyngeal or tracheal foreign bodies) are generally viewed as medical emergencies, and should addressed as soon as possible.
Nasal congestion has many causes, and can range widely in severity. At a minimum, it can cause mild or moderate face/head pain and discomfort. However, significant congestion can interfere with sleep routines, cause snoring, and can be associated with sleep apnea.
Nasal fractures are caused by physical trauma to the face, usually from sports injuries, fights, falls, or car accidents. Symptoms include bruising, swelling, tenderness, pain, deformity, and/or bleeding of the nose and nasal region of the face. Breathing may be impaired, and excessive nosebleeds can occur.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Conditions
Like any other joint in the human body, it can become inflamed, resulting in significant discomfort in the ear, jaw, neck, head, or over the joint itself.
Tinnitus (Ringing in the Ears)
Tinnitus, commonly described as ringing in the ears, is an abnormal sensation of sound when there is no actual sound present. Nearly 36 million Americans suffer from tinnitus.
