Dr. Monty V. Trimble and Dr. Jonathan Wu treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS). Modern innovation and technology has advanced the diagnosis and surgical treatment for chronic sinus disease. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) using a small-lighted metal telescope is now commonly performed without incisions and entirely through the nose.
Dr. Monty V. Trimble and Dr. Jonathan Wu are board certified Otolaryngologists – Head and Neck Surgeons who specialize in the evaluation and treatment of sinus diseases. Balloon sinus ostial dilation procedures are performed in their office as a treatment for chronic sinusitis since it was made available in 2011. This new, advanced technology has improved patient outcomes with much less recovery time.
Nasal turbinate hypertrophy can be treated by Dr. Monty Trimble and Dr. Jonathan Wu as an in-office procedure using radiofrequency volumetric tissue reduction (RFVTR, Somnoplasty) of chronic nasal obstruction due to mucosal hypertrophy of the inferior turbinates.
Sinus surgery is typically performed through the nose using a small, thin tube with a camera called an endoscope. The endoscope allows the doctor to see inside the nose and sinuses in order to open the nasal passages and clear blockages. Because endoscopic sinus surgery is less invasive, it has a lower rate of complications and a much shorter recovery.
