Strabbing became a doctor to be able to help people improve their lives, and he discovered that performing balloon sinuplasty procedures was an effective way to do this.
“I was one of the forerunners for doing balloon sinuplasty in the upper Midwest,” he said. “At that time, the first case was still (performed) in the operating room. Over time, we learned to do this in the office. I personally was one of several (doctors) across the U.S. that pioneered this technology in the office.” Since those early days, he has been involved nationally in refining the anesthesia protocol to make sure patients have a pleasant experience during the procedure.
“With my experience in balloon sinuplasty, I’m able to custom tailor a plan for the patient,” he said.
