Head and Neck Disorders
Here at our Irvine, CA, office, Dr. Victor Strelzow and his team treat a number of different head and neck disorders through state-of-the-art surgical techniques and treatments, as well as non-surgical options. Our team of medical professionals is here to diagnose, treat and manage your head and neck disorders and conditions. Some of the most common head and neck disorders that we treat include,
Nasal and sinus problems
From seasonal allergies to chronic sinusitis, many patients come into our office because they are battling long-term nasal congestion and pressure, as well as difficulty breathing, and they want to find out what’s going on and how to best treat it. Our board-certified otolaryngologist can work with you to create a customized treatment plan to help you breathe better, whether that includes prescription-strength antihistamines to combat your springtime allergies or you need balloon sinuplasty to open up blocked sinuses due to chronic sinusitis.
Sleep apnea and other sleep problems
Millions of Americans are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, which causes a person to stop breathing throughout the night due to collapsing tissue in the back of the throat. Most people with sleep apnea or sleep problems don’t realize that they have it; however, if you are battling poor, restless sleep, if you suffering from intense, chronic snoring, and if you have trouble with extreme daytime exhaustion (despite getting enough sleep) then it’s time to see if a sleep disorder could be to blame.
Sometimes this minor infection that affects the back of the throat can become persistent, recurring or severe. If you or your child develops frequent throat infections, it’s a good idea to see an ENT doctor to see what factors put you at an increased risk, as well as ways to prevent future infections. We’ve provided relief for many children and adults living in and around Irvine, CA, who have suffered from recurring tonsillitis. In more serious cases, a tonsillectomy (a procedure in which the tonsils are removed) may be recommended.
