While most people will deal with nasal congestion and sinus issues at least a few times in their lifetime, there are some people who face nasal or sinus disorders on a regular basis. Maybe you find that you have difficulty breathing properly due to a deviated septum. Maybe you find yourself snoring or dealing with frequent nosebleeds. Fortunately, our Irvine, CA, otolaryngologist, Dr. Victor Strelzow, offers state-of-the-art and less invasive ways to treat your serious sinus and nasal conditions. Here are just some of the advanced treatments we offer:

Rigid Nasal Endoscopy

Whether you are dealing with chronic nasal congestion, facial pain or other sinus issues it’s important that you get to the bottom of these problems. If you aren’t finding relief through at-home measures, or if your symptoms are severe, it’s time you had our Irvine ENT doctor take a look.

Through the use of our rigid nasal endoscopy and fiber-optic flexible endoscopy, we make it easier than ever to get a fast, accurate diagnosis so that we can get you on the road to recovery as soon as possible. Being able to get answers for what’s causing your symptoms can really bring you the peace of mind you’ve been looking for.

Balloon Sinuplasty

If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis (lasting over 12 weeks) and conservative treatments aren’t able to fully address your symptoms then it’s time you talked to us about whether balloon sinuplasty is the next best option for you.

Instead of undergoing invasive surgery that requires incisions or sometimes bone or tissue removal, this minimally invasive procedure uses a balloon catheter to open up the nasal passages and remove the blockage. No incisions, no cutting, fewer post-treatment side effects and a faster recovery time means an ideal way to treat your serious or long-term sinusitis.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Thanks to advanced digital technology, we are now able to offer another minimally invasive and much safer way to perform sinus surgery without the potential for serious post-operative side effects or complications and with a shorter recovery time. This procedure is most often recommended if there is a potential issue within the bone or tissues of the nasal or sinus passageways that need to be removed.

Unlike balloon sinuplasty, which doesn’t involve any incisions or cutting, this procedure may be performed if there an obstruction, nasal polyp or deviated septum may be causing you serious issues and a structural issue needs to be corrected.
