Breathe Easier, Live Better

Our comprehensive range of services is designed to address both minor and significant sinus conditions, ensuring you find relief and improve your life experience.

Our Scope of Practice in Sinus Care

Balloon Sinuplasty

This is a minimally invasive treatment for chronic sinusitis. It involves inserting a small balloon into the sinus passages and gently inflating it to open up blocked sinuses, allowing for improved drainage and relief from sinus pressure.

Nasal Congestion

Nasal congestion is often a symptom of various underlying conditions like allergies or infections. Treatments can range from medication to procedures that address structural issues in the nasal passages.


This is a condition involving inflammation of the sinus cavities, often leading to congestion, pain, and other symptoms. Treatment options may include medication, lifestyle changes, or surgical interventions.

Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is a cutting-edge, minimally invasive option at Southern ENT Associates for treating chronic sinusitis. This procedure entails the gentle insertion of a slender, flexible balloon catheter into the nasal passageway, reaching the obstructed sinus. Once positioned, the balloon is delicately inflated, reshaping and expanding the sinus passage without the need for cutting or removing any bone or tissue.

The advantages of this technique include significantly reduced discomfort, minimal bleeding, and quicker recovery times compared to traditional sinus surgery. Especially beneficial for those suffering recurrent sinus infections unresponsive to medication, Balloon Sinuplasty at Southern ENT Associates is a lasting solution that carries a lower risk of complications, effectively enhancing sinus drainage and function.

Endoscopic Surgery for Nasal Polyps and Chronic Sinusitis

When non-invasive treatments have not produced results, Southern ENT Associates offers endoscopic surgery for nasal polyps and chronic sinusitis. This surgical approach focuses on removing polyps and clearing the sinuses to facilitate normal breathing and minimize future infection risks.

Performed endoscopically, this method is less invasive than traditional surgeries, avoiding external scarring, minimizing post-operative discomfort, and enabling a faster return to everyday activities. The primary aim of this surgery is to improve nasal drainage, relieve symptoms, and elevate the patient's quality of life. After surgery, continuous medical management might be necessary to avert the recurrence of these conditions.

At Southern ENT Associates, Septoplasty, or deviated septum surgery, is a precision-driven surgical procedure designed to rectify a misaligned nasal septum – the divider between the two nasal cavities. This operation is particularly beneficial for patients whose breathing is impeded by a deviated septum, as it facilitates easier breathing, alleviates nasal congestion, and can notably diminish snoring issues.

The procedure is conducted internally, without the need for external incisions, and is typically performed on an outpatient basis. Patients generally experience minimal discomfort post-surgery and can swiftly resume their daily activities after a brief recovery period. The outcome is a marked enhancement in nasal airflow and overall nasal function.

Nasal Turbinate Reduction

Nasal turbinate reduction at Southern ENT Associates is a targeted surgical procedure focused on diminishing the size of the turbinates – the structures in the nose responsible for air purification and humidification. Enlargement of turbinates, often due to allergies or other conditions, can obstruct nasal passages and impede breathing.

The procedure is executed by either surgically removing part of the turbinate or utilizing specialized energy techniques to reduce turbinate tissue. This effectively opens up the nasal passages, significantly easing airflow and reducing congestion. The resultant improvement in breathing can dramatically increase a patient's comfort and overall quality of life, with most experiencing considerable relief from nasal obstruction.

CT Imaging

CT imaging is a leap forward in the diagnosis and treatment planning for sinus conditions. This advanced technology enables us to perform immediate, high-resolution sinus scans, offering detailed imagery to identify problem areas precisely. This accessibility not only accelerates the diagnostic process but also allows for the development of more accurate and efficient treatment plans.

With CT imaging, our patients enjoy shorter waiting times, fewer overall appointments, and more efficient and effective care. This tool is invaluable for our ENT specialists, providing them with critical information needed to precisely resolve a range of sinus issues.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery is an advanced method designed to restore normal sinus function. This procedure is often the solution for individuals with chronic sinus infections, nasal polyps, or structural blockages unresponsive to medication. Through the use of a nasal endoscope, our surgeons gain direct visual access to the sinus cavities, enabling accurate and minimal removal of obstructions and enhancing sinus drainage.

This minimally invasive technique reduces tissue trauma, leading to less discomfort and a quicker recovery than is possible with traditional sinus surgery. The primary goal of endoscopic sinus surgery is to provide lasting relief and significantly decrease sinus-related symptoms, improving your overall quality of life – with a faster recovery time.
