Enloe ENT offers the Relieva Balloon Sinuplasty devices to treat patients with chronic sinusitis. This FDA-cleared, catheter-based minimally invasive technology is used to open the blocked sinus ostium. In many cases tissue or bone is not removed, and this may result in reduced bleeding. Using this system, the blocked sinus ostium is gently dilated restoring normal sinus drainage and function.

Benefits include

  • Minimally invasive procedure - Gently opens blocked sinuses
  • Fast recovery time - Recovery time can vary with each patient, and some patients have been known to return to normal activity within 24 hours.

Otology (Ear)

Enloe ENT diagnoses and treats conditions of the ear, including:

  • Hearing loss: Chronic, gradual and sudden
  • Ear infections: Ear pain, drainage and blockage
  • Pediatrics: Ear tube placement
  • Ear drum perforations: From accidents and infections
  • Mastoid problems
