Among other treatments, Ashland ENT offers two unique services to treat chronic nasal and sinus symptoms: Balloon Sinuplasty and ClariFix.
Balloon sinuplasty is a safe, in-office, minimally invasive procedure that takes less than two hours under local anesthesia. A wire catheter and balloon, inserted via endoscopic visualization in your sinus, is used to open block passageways, thus improving drainage. When you are done you may return to work and other normal daily activities, but with the added benefit of breathing a little—no, a lot—easier.
If you suffer from frequent runny nose, congestion and post-nasal drip even when you aren’t sick, you may have a condition called chronic rhinitis.
Ashland ENT offers a unique treatment solution for adults with these frustrating chronic rhinitis symptoms. Using the patented ClariFix® cryotherapy device, we are able to go to the source of the problem, the inflamed nasal lining and out of balance nerves in the nose.
A clinical study demonstrated a significant decrease in runny nose & congestion symptoms with 4 out of 5 patients reporting long-lasting relief after ClariFix® cryotherapy.1,2
The most common side effects associated with ClariFix cryotherapy are temporary increased congestion and transient pain or discomfort.
