Relief from Allergies with Nasal Irrigation
Nasal irrigation is a great way to maintain a high level of endonasal hygiene. In fact, daily nasal irrigation alone can significantly improve symptoms of allergic rhinitis, most commonly known as nasal allergies. The nasal cavity could be thought of just as we consider our oral cavities. We optimally brush our teeth and floss up to several times per day. Likewise, performing at least once-daily nasal irrigation can substantially improve nasal breathing, confer a “clean” feelling the the nose, and significantly improve nasal congestion and post-nasal drip.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ – In Office Procedure Providing the Best Relief for Sinusitis
Millions of Americans suffer from sinusitis every year. Are you one of them?
At Orange Coast ENT Head & Neck Surgery, we’re proud to offer new technology for treating sinusitis that does not involve surgery or downtime. Balloon Sinuplasty™ takes only about one hour and is done under a local anesthetic in our office (no operating room needed!). We have already conducted hundreds of cases over the last four years and have found a very high patient satisfaction with this procedure. There are no incisions and the result is permanent, relieving patients of sinusitis for life!
The procedure is very straightforward – it is essentially angioplasty (a procedure to restore blood flow through the artery), but with the sinus drainage channels. With Balloon Sinuplasty™, the channels are opened via balloon dilation and without any cutting. Our patients go home the same day and usually return to work the following day. Most of our patients report feeling immediate improvement after the procedure with continuous improvement thereafter.
