Listed below are some of the common nose related services we offer. Contact us to learn more about how we can assist you in restoring healthy function to your nose, nasal passageways and sinuses.
A septoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to straighten and/or repair a deviated septum. The nasal septum is the tissue that separates one side of the nose from the other. If the septum is in the wrong position it can cause recurrent nasal congestion and difficulty breathing. After surgery, our Richmond deviated septum patients report restore breathing function and fewer issues with congesting and infections.
Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough, minimally-invasive procedure designed to restore proper function to the sinus passageways. In turn, this releases sinus pressure and promotes adequate sinus drainage, leading to fewer or no sinus infections. Balloon Sinuplasty is performed using a simple, balloon-like device which is inserted into the nasal cavity and gently inflated to expand the passageway. Richmond Balloon Sinuplasty patients experience immediate improvement in sinus function and can return to normal daily activities almost immediately.
Turbinate reduction involves reducing the size of the turbinates in the nose to eliminate the nasa; obstruction they can cause. There are multiple methods for achieving a turbinate reduction, each of which we discuss in detail with our Richmond turbinate reduction patients before deciding on a treatment plan.
Rhinoplasty can be performed for cosmetic reasons, to restore function to the nose, or to repair or revise the result of a previous nose surgery. In general, rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used to sculpt the nose, and can be performed with an incision made on the outside of the nose (open) or within the nose (closed).
Nose Tumor Removal
Tissue is often removed from the nose after a diagnosis of benign or malignent cancer of the nose. The primary goal of surgery is to remove the entire tumor and a small amount of the surrounding tissue to maintain as much of the aesthetic as possible. At Commonwealth Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialists, P.C. our nose specialists are trained and experienced removing nose tumors.
