Balloon Sinuplasty is an in-office procedure that provides patients relief from sinus pressure, chronic headaches, nasal headaches, and postnasal drip. With balloon sinuplasty, patients experience a procedure that lasts about 30 minutes. With only numbing cream applied, patients are awake during the procedure and experience no pain and minimal discomfort. There is no anesthesia, no surgical downtime, no bruising, swelling, scarring, and no stitches, allowing Dr. Ahuja's patients to return to normal activities.
Treatments for Nasal Congestion
Nasal Congestion is rarely a condition by itself-it is usually caused by something else, requiring treatment for an underlying condition. For patients suffering from persistent nasal congestion, Dr. Ahuja's testing will find the source. Once that is done, he can administer the correct treatment to provide patients with lasting relief.
Allergy Testing & Therapy
Allergies come in all levels of severity. Additionally, they come from many different causes. The testing process is almost as important as the treatment itself, as it allows Dr. Ahuja to find the exact source of the problem. From there, he can easily deliver the best allergy treatment available.
In-Office Septoplasty for Deviated Septum
While deviated septums affect millions of people in the U.S., there is a form of treatment that can provide permanent relief. A septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten a deviated septum, eliminating the patient's symptoms such as nosebleeds, facial pain, nasal congestion, and more.
