Balloon SinuplastyContact Clinic
Balloon Sinuplasty is a breakthrough procedure that aims to treat chronic sinusitis and sinus-related conditions. In Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP for short), a small, flexible balloon catheter is inserted and inflated inside the nose to widen narrowed passageway by eliminating mucus build-up in the sinuses. It is a non-invasive approach, which requires no incisions or cutting or removal of bone or tissue. It is proven to provide relief in patients who experience sinus pain symptoms and it does not have a significant downtime. Local anaesthesia is administered before the procedure, and patients typically resume their normal activities after a day or two.

Endoscopic Sinus SurgeryContact Clinic
Endoscopic sinus surgery is a surgical procedure that offers treatment to patients with sinus-related conditions. In this technique, a thin lighted instrument (with a camera attached) called the endoscope is inserted into the nose, providing the surgeon a clear view of the sinuses. Alongside the endoscope are surgical instruments, which enable the doctor to remove small bits of tissue and other unwanted materials such as polyps that block the sinus openings. Laser or a rotating burr may be used to remove blockages. The surgery is performed with either local or general anaesthesia and lasts 30 to up to 90 minutes.
Follow up visits with the physician after the first consultation for a specific condition.
Head & Neck SurgeryContact Clinic
When non-surgical treatments are inadequate to treat conditions that affect the head and neck such as cancer, surgery is recommended. There are several options for head and neck surgery, which include open surgery, trans-oral laser surgery and more advanced robotic surgery. Open surgery requires general anaesthesia and incisions, which may result in disfigurement and oral difficulties, and would thus require reconstructive surgery afterwards. Trans-oral laser surgery is less invasive and doesn't result in physical disfigurement. The technique utilises a surgical camera and microscope that are inserted through the nose or mouth to access the abnormal growth or tumor. An advanced minimally invasive robotic surgery may also be used which uses robotic technology in performing more complex surgery.

Nasal Polyps TreatmentContact Clinic
Nasal polyps are non-cancerous growths that are usually teardrop-shaped that form in the sinuses or the nose. They are often associated with asthma and allergies and usually don't require serious medical attention. However, when nasal polyps grow into significant size, lead to blockage and cause thick mucus to accumulate, prompt diagnosis and medical treatment is necessary. Medical treatment for nasal polyps includes nasal corticosteroid spray, as well as oral medicines such as prednisone, antihistamines, nasal decongestants, and antibiotics if there is an underlying infection. Surgical procedure for nasal polyps is performed through endoscopic surgery, which is a minimally invasive technique that utilises a small nasal telescope and small instruments that are inserted into the nose to surgically remove the abnormal growth.
Sleep Apnea/Snoring DeviceContact Clinic
Sleeping apnea is a common sleeping disorder characterised by shallow breaths or a few pauses in breathing that can last a few seconds to minutes while one sleeps. Normal breathing resumes in between these breathing interruptions, usually coupled with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea causes poor sleep quality, which makes one sleepy or sluggish all throughout the day. Although not a serious condition, untreated chronic sleep apnea can increase one’s risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, arrhythmias, diabetes, and work-related accidents. Treatment for sleep apnea involves long-term management that may include lifestyle changes, breathing devices, mouthpieces and in some cases, surgery.
