Is it "Just Allergies?" Know the Difference.

"It's just my allergies." That's what many people tell themselves, and others, any time they experience a sore throat or runny nose. With Spring in full bloom and pollen covering everything, it's entirely possible that what many of us are experiencing are allergy symptoms. With that said, it's important now more than ever to know the difference between allergy symptoms and those of a cold or other respiratory issues. The symptoms can be very similar, but the root causes are very different. Knowing the difference between the two can help you to get the right treatment and feel better sooner.

Balloon sinuplasty is a gentle in-office procedure that opens the nasal passages to allow proper drainage to occur. Our ENT will first insert a small balloon catheter into the nasal passage, slowly inflate it to open the sinuses, and then gently spray a saline solution to clean out any remaining infection.
