ENT Specialist Vijay Sharma, MD, MPH, Jupiter FL, is an Otolaryngologist – an ear, nose, and throat specialist that helps to diagnose and treat problems involving the upper respiratory system. Our office is located at 601 University Blvd, Suite 201, Jupiter, FL.
Sinus Surgery is one of the most common operations performed. Dr. Sharma will review with you whether this procedure is the appropriate procedure to open possible sinus obstructions.
Colds, allergies, infections or other obstructions of the sinuses (i.e. deviated septum) can cause inflammation of the mucosa and block the drainage of the sinus cavities. If the sinuses become inflamed, Sinusitis can occur. The mucus becomes thicker and cannot pass through the openings and end up accumulating in the sinuses. Many symptoms can arise including fever, headaches, and pain over and underneath the eyes. Polyps form when mucosa becomes swollen by repeated infections. For more information about sinus surgery or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office in Jupiter, FL at Jupiter Office Phone Number 561-277-0699.
Balloon Sinus Surgery
The NuVentTM EM Sinus Dilation System may be used in a minimally invasive surgical procedure called balloon sinus dilation to open blocked sinus pathways, improve symptoms, reduce infections and minimize sinus headaches. NuVentTM is unique because it has a built-in tracking element that “talks to” our Medtronic image guidance system (IGS) technology. Your sinus anatomy is unique, especially if you have sinus disease. The IGS displays a visual map of your sinus anatomy for your doctor. It works like GPS in a car or phone to help guide and place the balloon device.
