If you suffer from sinus headaches, nasal obstruction, nasal drainage, or loss of smell you may have a sinus issue. Dr. Schleiffarth and Dr. Guy treats all areas of sinus problems.
He will perform a comprehensive medical history and physical examination. This can include using a small telescope to assess the sinus drainage. After the evaluation, Dr. Schleiffarth and Dr. Guy will provide the treatment plan that fits your problem.
A procedure that Dr. Schleiffarth may use for the treatment of blocked sinuses is called Balloon Sinuplasty. Patients diagnosed with sinusitis that are not responding to medications may be candidates for sinus surgery. Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue. 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.
