Nasal and sinus disorders are among the most common health problems seen in the United States, affecting millions of Americans every year. These can have a dramatic impact on one's quality of life and medical expenses. In addition to the time and cost of frequent vists to the doctor or pharmacy, the indirect effects of sinonasal problems include fatigue, missed work or school, and decreased productivity. Fortunately, there are a broad range of medical and surgical therapies available to treat the nose and sinuses. Our goal at the Ear, Nose & Throat Center of Conway is to preserve or improve the function of your nose and sinuses. Our board-certified physicians take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating your sinonasal problems to achieve your optimal health outcome.
The first step in treating sinonasal disorders is a detailed history and physical. Additonal diagnostic tests can include CT scans, nasal endoscopy, allergy testing, and immunotesting. Typically, the first line of treatment for nasal or sinus problems is medications, such as antihistamines, nasal sprays, antibiotics, or steroids. Sometimes these medications are either not enough or they help for a short time and then the problem comes back. Repeated courses of antibiotics or steroids may be a sign of a chronic problem that can be improved with a nasal procedure.

We expanded our practice in 2016 and opened the Arkansas Sinus Center to emphasize the availability of new, state-of-the-art techniques and devices to treat sinus disease. We now offer in-office balloon sinuplasty, sinus surgery, septoplasty, and much more. By performing these procedures in the office, we increase safely and decrease cost compared to surgery in the operating room under general anesthesia. For more on the Arkansas Sinus Center and what we have to offer, visit the website here. We continue to routinely perform nasal surgeries under general anesthesia for those patients on whom it is more appropriate.
