Sinuplasty, Head, Neck Thyroid Surgery

Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms. It is performed in the office under local anesthesia, so that there is no need to go to an operating room or undergo general anesthesia unlike traditional sinus surgery. BSP requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining. Published clinical data in the leading ENT journals shows that it is safe, effective and proven to offer significant improvement for sinusitis symptoms.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, especially for those who are frequently outdoors for work or play, but it is also the easiest form of cancer to diagnose.

The three main forms of skin cancer are: Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.
