Sinus and Nasal Disorders
Problems with the nose and sinuses make people feel miserable. Our team of physicians has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of sinus and nasal disorders using both medications and surgery. When needed, we use endoscopy during the office visit to provide the most accurate diagnosis and develop the best possible treatment plan for our patients.
Throat disorders can have a substantial impact on quality of life, causing pain, or making it difficult to breathe, swallow or speak . In some cases, simple throat symptoms can have serious causes, such as benign or malignant tumors. Our laryngologists are specially trained to evaluate throat disorders thoroughly and to develop effective treatment plans. When necessary, office endoscopy is performed to better assess the causes of these symptoms.
Head and Neck
The head and neck area has a wider variety of potential masses and tumors than anywhere else in the body. Sometimes, problems such as cysts and infections can be treated quite simply. However, sometimes even a painless lump in the thyroid or neck can be serious. Our experienced physicians provide a thorough evaluation and consider a wide range of diagnoses; if the problem turns out to be serious, we provide expert surgical care.
