End Chronic Sinusitis

Balloon sinus dilation is the minimally invasive and cost effective way to end sinus suffering once and for all.

Chronic sinus infections, characterized by inflamed and swollen sinuses, are not only a painful condition, but one that can feel like it’s taking over your life. Victims of chronic sinusitis may have difficulty breathing through their nose as the nasal passageways become increasingly inflamed and swollen and often have trouble sleeping. However, the most difficult side effect to deal with is not the inability to breathe easily, but the immobilizing facial pain and tenderness associated with this condition.

Quality of Life

For the occasional sufferer, a sinus infection might not be that big of a deal and is often treatable with a round of antibiotics. For those people dealing with the condition chronically, treatments like this are ineffective and don’t deal with the root of the problem, which has to do with the structural make up of the individuals nasal passageways. Chronic sinusitis, often brought on by an infection, is much more debilitating and can interfere greatly with a persons quality of life. Many victims of chronic sinusitis find that the loss of sleep, due to discomfort and pain, have a negative cumulative effect on their ability to function in their everyday life. For these people, the constant pain, inability to focus, and lack of quality sleep can greatly damage their relationships and productivity.

Balloon Sinus Dilation

If you are experiencing chronic sinus pain and the traditional prescription pills, saline, and nasal sprays have failed, you might be a perfect candidate for sinus surgery. Traditionally, sinus surgery has taken place in the hospital with a long and painful recovery period. Now, with new medical advances, in which our own Dr. Sigari played a pivotal role, you may be eligible for balloon sinus dilation. Approved by the F.D.A. in 2005, Balloon sinus dilation, also known as balloon sinusplasty is an innovative procedure that is minimally invasive and dramatically reduces both recovery time and pain.

No Hospital Time

One of the greatest benefits of balloon sinus dilation is that it can now be performed in our Del Rey Sinus office. Hospital surgeries are typically more difficult and expensive, so this is a huge advantage! Not only will you be avoiding burdensome hospital expenses, but you’ll be able to rest comfortably knowing the doctors and staff who will be helping guide you through the procedure and recovery.

Balloon Sinus Dilation Cost

In most cases balloon sinus dilation is covered by insurance so clients have minimal out of pocket expenses. If you think balloon sinus dilation might be the right solution for you, the best way to estimate the cost is to come into our Del Ray Sinus & Allergy Institute for an evaluation. Our team is here to help our clients answer all questions regarding the procedure, recovery, insurance and costs.

Dr. Sigari and his staff have been practicing balloon sinus dilation therapy for years with hundreds of satisfied patients. This minimally invasive, affordable surgery is the best solution for patients suffering from years of chronic sinus infections. If you’ve been suffering from chronic sinusitis and think you might be a good candidate for the surgery, don’t hesitate to contact our office and set up your no-obligation consultation.

Sinuva Sinus Implant

Dr. Farhad Sigari of Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute Implants the First Sinuva Device in Southern California

This just in!

Dr. Farhad Sigari is the first MD in Southern California to place the brand-new Sinuva sinus device!

One of the most common and persistent conditions we treat at Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute are nasal polyps. These stubborn growths can appear in the nose, and cause breathing difficulty because they obstruct your nasal passageways. In the past, treatments have included surgery, steroid pills or sprays, but even with one or all of these measures, nasal polyps can come back again and again.

Nasal polyps can ruin your whole day

Until now. Just this past December, 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Sinuva sinus device. Once Dr. Sigari implants the small device, it slowly releases steroid medication directly to the sinus passages for up to 90 days. The implant softens over time and after the medication is absorbed, the implant can be easily removed. The implant and removal can be done in a routine office visit, no hospital or surgery needed!

Dr. Sigari just performed the first implant in Southern California, and one of the first in the country, on a patient. The patient is a 53-year-old male who had multiple previous sinus surgeries, including polyp removals. Because of his recurring nasal polyps, this patient was an ideal candidate for the Sinuva implant. Now, a couple of weeks later, he’s showing no signs of irritation or bleeding, and is comfortable and breathing free and easy!

ICYMI, nasal polyps are noncancerous, inflammatory growths along the lining of the nasal passages. They can cause many unpleasant symptoms including runny nose, congestion, facial pain, and a loss of sense of smell. And worst of all, they can keep coming back. But now there’s Sinuva, so stay tuned for more long-term results, from the first clinic to offer the implant in SoCal! If you have any of these symptoms, Sinuva could help you. Let us do a thorough exam and see what’s going on with your sinuses. Give us a call at (310) 823-4444 or email info@delreysinus.com to set an appointment.

Sinuva Sinus Device

Innovative Sinuva™ Sinus Device

Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute® First in Southern California to Complete Implant With Innovative Sinuva™ Sinus Device

Advanced, In-Office Treatment Provides Relief for Chronic Nasal Polyps

Marina Del Rey, Calif. – April 3, 2018 – Farhad Sigari, MD, FACS, founder of Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute and a leading ear nose and throat (ENT) doctor, has performed the first implant in Southern California, and one of the first in the United States, of the new Sinuva sinus device. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in December, 2017, Intersect ENT’s Sinuva implant is designed to treat recurring nasal polyps in adults who have had prior ethmoid sinus surgery (ESS).

“Nasal polyps are one of the most persistent and troublesome conditions that we see in our practice,” said Dr. Sigari, a board-certified otolaryngologist. “Even when we surgically remove nasal polyps and the patient exercises ongoing care using steroid sprays or pills, they can return time and again. We are proud to offer this new, advanced and effective treatment choice for patients who have chronic nasal polyps.”

Nasal polyps are noncancerous, inflammatory growths along the lining of the nasal passages. These growths may cause life-affecting symptoms including nasal discharge, congestion, facial pain, and a loss of sense of smell. Many people return to their sinus doctor with recurring polyps even after undergoing previous ethmoid sinus surgery. The Sinuva device is placed during a routine office visit and delivers steroid medication directly to the sinus for up to 90 days. As medication is absorbed, the Sinuva implant softens and may be easily removed.

The first patient treated by Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute is a 53-year-old male who has had several previous sinus procedures, but had recurrence of difficult-to-treat polyps. Dr. Sigari notes that the implant was inserted easily and without complications, and the patient evidenced no discomfort. On subsequent follow-up, the sinuses showed no signs of irritation, infection or bleeding and the implant was working very nicely. The implant is designed to stay in place for up to 3 months, giving the patient continued localized treatment while minimizing systemic effects.

Positive data from the SINUVA Sinus Implant was supported by the results of the RESOLVE II pivotal study. The study demonstrated a reduction in polyps, nasal obstruction/congestion, a reduction in need for repeat sinus surgery, and an improvement in impaired sense of smell.

These stubborn growths can appear in the nose, and cause breathing difficulty because they obstruct your nasal passageways. In the past, treatments have included surgery, steroid pills or sprays, but even with one or all of these measures, nasal polyps can come back again and again.

Nasal polyps can ruin your whole day

Until now. Just this past December, 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Sinuva sinus device. Once Dr. Sigari implants the small device, it slowly releases steroid medication directly to the sinus passages for up to 90 days. The implant softens over time and after the medication is absorbed, the implant can be easily removed. The implant and removal can be done in a routine office visit, no hospital or surgery needed!

Dr. Sigari just performed the first implant in Southern California, and one of the first in the country, on a patient. The patient is a 53-year-old male who had multiple previous sinus surgeries, including polyp removals. Because of his recurring nasal polyps, this patient was an ideal candidate for the Sinuva implant. Now, a couple of weeks later, he’s showing no signs of irritation or bleeding, and is comfortable and breathing free and easy!

ICYMI, nasal polyps are noncancerous, inflammatory growths along the lining of the nasal passages. They can cause many unpleasant symptoms including runny nose, congestion, facial pain, and a loss of sense of smell. And worst of all, they can keep coming back. But now there’s Sinuva, so stay tuned for more long-term results, from the first clinic to offer the implant in SoCal! If you have any of these symptoms, Sinuva could help you. Let us do a thorough exam and see what’s going on with your sinuses. Give us a call at (310) 823-4444 or email info@delreysinus.com to set an appointment.
