Dedicated to your health and wellness


Our approach to health care allows us to treat you for ear, nose, and throat complaints all in one location, with medical and surgical services that include:

 

Allergies

 

If you have allergies, you’re not alone. Allergies are incredibly common. Your allergies may be seasonal (causing symptoms only at certain times of the year) or perennial (causing symptoms all year long). Other health problems, such as asthma, often occur along with allergies.

Together, with one of our specialists, we can develop a plan to keep your allergies under control.

What are allergies?

Millions of Americans suffer from nasal allergies, commonly known as hay fever. Often fragrant flowers are blamed for the uncomfortable symptoms, yet they are rarely the cause; their pollens are too heavy to be airborne. An ear, nose, and throat specialist can help determine the substances causing your discomfort and develop a management plan that will help make life more enjoyable.

Our full service allergy department is here to meet your individual needs. From diagnosis to treatment, our physicians design a personal treatment plan just for you.

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Allergy skin prick testing
  • IDT (Intradermal Testing)
  • Immunotherapy (Allergy shots)
  • Sublingual Therapy (Allergy drops)

A detailed patient examination and history is the beginning of an effective allergy treatment program. Make an appointment with one of our physicians today!

 
 

Balloon Sinuplasty™


Since its introduction in 2005, Balloon Sinuplasty™ technology has emerged as a new complement to existing approaches.  More recently, this procedure has been optimized to enable specialists to perform this minimally invasive surgery in the office setting.

Balloon Sinuplasty™ has been utilized in over 125,000 patients and 350,000 sinuses. Each day approximately 200 sinus surgeries are being performed with this technology.

Ultimately, the technology may allow for significant symptom relief for patients and faster return to normal daily activities - often in 24 hours.

Balloon Sinuplasty™ is a novel, endoscopic, catheter-based technology utilized in sinus surgery that you can discuss with your doctor. This FDA-cleared technology uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining.  To learn more about Balloon Sinuplasty™, review the video, "see how it works" on this Web site.

The physicians at Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Associates offer Balloon Sinuplasty™ in the convenience of their office.

 

Selective hearing

 

Our practice is the only Ear, Nose, and Throat practice in the area to offer in-house hearing and balance services.

While many issues can be treated by our physicinas, patients sometimes require additional testing or rehabilitation. Our audiologists, Hugh D. Ferguson, M.A., CCC-A and Teigan Fletcher, Au.D., offer these services right in our office.

Diagnosing and treating hearing and balance disorders
A visit with one of our audiologists is recommeneded after an evaluation by an otolaryngologist to determine whether there is a malady with the ear itself, such as:

  • Hearing loss
  • Eustachian tube dysfunction
  • Tinnitus
  • Balance disorders (dizziness)

Hearing loss & hearing aids
Our office conducts audiological tests for all ages. We offer:

  • Testing to confirm your hearing aid provides optimum amplification
  • The most advanced digital hearing aids, including directional microphones, digital noise reduction, automatic feedback reduction, and automatic telephone response.
  • A liberal 60-day trial period good on all of our devices, offering a full refund for all hearing aid with 100% money back guarantee

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is one of the most common causes of vertigo. Simply put, it is caused by calcium deposits in the inner ear, that disrupt the path of neural signals to the brain and cause sensations of dizziness.

Often, this can be treated in our office using a procedure known as the Canalith Repositioning Maeuver. Our office has an 85% cure rate for BPPV using this procedure.
