MANHATTAN, NY, April 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The highly accomplished otolaryngologist Dr. Richard Nass has been providing excellent Manhattan ENT
service for decades. Now Dr. Nass is proud to announce the launch of a new service for those with sinus issues. A new, state of the art biodegradable sinus implant provides sinus relief for those with chronic sinusitis.
Each year 31 million people suffer from chronic sinusitis, which makes it one of the most common health problems in the United States. With this condition the sinus linings around the nose and eyes become inflamed. This leads to blockage, chronic infection, and obstruction. The symptoms of chronic sinusitis may include: facial pressure or pain, nasal problems Manhattan
, nasal congestion or obstruction, nasal discharge that is discolored, headache, difficulty sleeping, loss of smell or taste, and headaches. If you experience any of these symptoms, you may be suffering from acute sinusitis.
Now with the availability of new Propel sinus implants, those who suffer from chronic sinusitis have a clinically proven treatment option. Propel delivers a localized and controlled release of steroids directly to the sinuses for those with Manhattan sinus disease
. With a minor procedure, Dr. Nass inserts the spring like implants that keep the ethmoid sinus open and slowly deliver advanced corticosteroid to the lining of the sinuses. This corticosteroid provides anti-inflammatory relief right to the necessary area.
After surgery on the sinuses, scarring and inflammation can cause obstruction of the airways. However Propel improves surgical outcomes by preventing obstruction of the ethmoid sinus. This provides two main benefits: it reduces the need for more surgeries, and avoids the use of systemic steroids that carry more serious side effects.
