Sinus and Nose Disease Management
Nose diseases and conditions such as sinus are the most common reasons why children are taken to Ear, Nose, and Throat specialists (ENT). The main objective of managing these conditions is to avoid surgery as much as possible. For acute sinusitis, decongestants like Sudafed are typically prescribed along with steam inhalations. Meanwhile, vaporizer is given to patients suffering from chronic sinusitis along with oral steroids and antibiotics. Other treatment options include nasal drop, nasal sprays, antihistamine, and antibodies. Dr. Puraviappan Periyannan will formulate a patient-centered treatment plan after making a thorough diagnosis.
Sleep Apnea/Snoring Device
Dr. Puraviappan’s ENT Clinic offers a wide range of treatment options to manage sleep apnea and snoring. For moderate cases, breathing masks, which are recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, can be used. These supply pressurized air that prevents the patients’ airway from collapsing while they’re sleeping. Oral appliances and upper airway stimulation devices may also be used. For severe cases, surgical management may be recommended. The most common method used is Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, which removes tissues in the throat. Dr. Puraviappan will make a thorough diagnosis before recommending any treatment that is deemed best based on your unique circumstances.
Treatments for Tinnitus and Balance Disorders
Tinnitus is an auditory problem characterized by ringing, whistling, or noise in the ears. It is caused by aging, prolonged or long-term exposure to loud sounds, changes in the ear bone, build-up of ear wax, high blood pressure, capillary malformation, or certain medications. It may also be a symptom of a balanced disorder, tumors in the head and neck, Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder, or Meniere’s disease. Treating tinnitus means managing the root cause. Some of the most popular forms of therapies are noise suppression using white noise sounds or machines, masking or hearing aid devices, removal of ear wax, or retraining.
