Physicians at Michigan ENT & Allergy Specialists offer minimally invasive procedures to help sinusitis sufferers the opportunity to get relief and get back on their feet.

Chronic sinus issues are not rare, and doctors say new innovative procedures make it easy and quick to get sinusitis symptoms fixed.

“There are many things we can do to treat the sinuses, from using an appropriate nasal/allergy regimen to procedures that can be done in the office and surgical options,” Dr. Seth Palmer of Michigan ENT & Allergy Specialists said. “It would be our pleasure to see you and discuss how we can improve your sinus symptoms.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 11.6% of the American adult population suffers from sinusitis. That’s 28.9 million people.

Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure, which is quick with minimal recovery time and can be performed in the medical office.

“We have providers who are excellent in evaluating the sinuses with endoscopy, allergy testing and CT scans to come up with the best management for your chronic sinus issues,” Palmer said.

Chronic sinusitis symptoms can be very similar to other issues, and only a doctor can diagnose sinusitis, according to WebMD.

“I went into medicine to help people, and balloon sinuplasty is one of the best inventions that has occurred since I became a physician in 2000,” Dr. Richard Strabbing of Michigan ENT & Allergy Specialists said. “I feel fortunate to be able to deliver such a minimally invasive technology to my patients.”

The number of visits to physician offices — with chronic sinusitis as the primary diagnosis — is 4.1 million per year, according to the CDC.

“I really enjoy discussing options with my patients. Balloon sinuplasty and other minimally invasive sinus procedures done in the office give my patients great options,” Strabbing said. “Quick recovery, super results and life-changing benefits for patients are often seen. It has been exciting to be an ENT over the last few years and be able to offer my patients great solutions with minimal downtime.”
