Diagnostic tools

Our experts work together to develop benchmarks for testing and leading-edge diagnostic tools used throughout the country. Our diagnostic services incorporate this advanced technology so conditions and disease are detected early. These services include:

  • Allergy testing
  • Microvascular reconstruction
  • Sinus evaluation
  • Skull base surgery
  • Sleep disorders, including sleep apnea

Treatment options

We provide a complete range of medical and surgical treatment options for ENT conditions. These options include the newest, least invasive innovations the field has to offer, such as:

  • ClariFix® cryotherapy is a minimally invasive and long-lasting solution for chronic rhinitis. When the nerves of the nasal cavity work overtime, they cause sniffling, dripping, coughing and congestion. Commonly prescribed medications may bring side effects or have little effect on symptoms at all. ClariFix, performed in the office with minimal risk or downtime, applies cooling therapy to the nasal nerves, interrupting the nerve signals before the nose runs or swells.

  • Inspire® is a therapy for obstructive sleep apnea. For those who have difficulty using or maintaining the cumbersome CPAP machine, Inspire offers an alternative for lasting relief from obstructive sleep apnea. The implanted device sends signals to the tongue throughout the night, stimulating it to move from the airway before sleep is disrupted.

  • The pillar procedure is used to relieve snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. These conditions can occur when the muscles at the back of the throat relax during sleep. The pillar procedure entails the surgical placement of small rods into the soft palate to firm up the tissue, minimizing relaxation and vibration.

We also provide other treatments involving:

  • Allergy desensitization
  • Assessment and treatment of pediatric problems of the ear, nose and throat
  • Comprehensive care of voice disorders, including the professional voice
  • Cosmetic and reconstructive surgery for the face, head, neck and jaw
  • Endoscopic surgery (ESS) to correct chronic sinus disease
  • Facial skin care and management
  • Implantable hearing aids and cochlear implants
  • Multidisciplinary management of skull base tumors
  • Placement of vagal nerve stimulation devices for seizure disorders
  • Surgery of head and neck tumors, including endoscopic laser surgery
  • Thyroid and parathyroid surgery
