MANHATTAN, NY, March 16, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With so many patients suffering from sinus conditions, Dr. Richard Nass, Manhattan ENT, is pleased to offer his patients the newest techniques in sinus surgery. Through advancements in ear, nose and throat care, Dr. Nass now offers patients minimally invasive endoscopic sinus surgery, balloon sinuplasty, image guidance surgery, and medication releasing desolvable, or desolving, sinus implants for the relief of sinus problems in Manhattan.
"These new methods allow us to cure chronic infections, prevent recurrent bouts of acute sinusitis, and breath easier, with less pain than the standard sinus surgery may have previously offered. I look forward to helping my patients find relief for their sinus problems with one of these safe and effective procedures for chronic sinusitis patients," said Dr. Richard Nass, ENT in Manhattan, NY.
Sinusitis is an inflammation, or infection, of the straw-sized passages that drain each of the sinuses surrounding the nose and eyes. It can cause swelling and facial pain, debilitating headaches, and a sometimes pus-like nasal congestion. Acute sinusitis, triggered by colds or bad allergies, usually clears up within a month. However, more than 30 million Americans suffer from chronic sinusitis, meaning symptoms last longer than two months or regularly recur.
Minimally invasive endoscopic sinus surgery helps Dr. Nass bring relief for Manhattan sinus problems. This surgery is a minimally invasive way to treat the problematic areas of the sinuses where there is blockage, with minimal effects on the surrounding tissue, while capitalizing on the inherent ability of the sinuses to drain themselves.
With the new Balloon Sinus Procedure, Dr. Nass, Manhattan, NY ENT, opens inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. The procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Balloon Sinus Procedure allows patients to return to normal activities quickly. Unlike conventional sinus surgery, it does not include removal of bone or tissue from the nose.
Additionally, Dr. Nass, doctor of the ear, nose and throat in Manhattan, utilizes image guidance surgery, which is another revolutionary treatment option for those with chronic sinusitis or who have polyps or frontal sinus disease. This advance procedure works like a GPS system, using a sophisticated three-dimensional mapping system that uses real-time data and CT scans for accurate navigation of the sinus anatomy without damaging nearby tissues. This enhanced level of precision is important in avoiding complications since the sinuses lie close to the eyes, brain, and other vital organs and arteries.
Dr. Richard Nass, Manhattan ear, nose and throat doctor, urges patients to visit one of his two convenient offices if they have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to antibiotics, as they may be a candidate for sinus surgery. With minimally invasive endoscopic sinus surgery, balloon sinuplasty, image guidance surgery, and medication releasing insolvable sinus implants, patients can receive relief from their congestion for an improved quality of life.
