    Constant blockage and sinusitis may occur as a result of allergies. This can cause pain, headache, fatigue, and bad breath. Balloon Sinuplasty is a procedure in which the doctor will open your inflamed sinuses. The doctor will use a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up any blocked sinus passages. This will restore normal sinus drainage.

    Ear tubes in children work within the ear to prevent the reoccurrence of chronic ear infections. An ear tube is placed in the middle ear and allows ventilation within the ear. Typically the set of ear tubes will fall out on their own, and most children only need one set and their ear infections resolve.

    At times, the function of the nose is hindered, perhaps by an injury, illness, or a trait that a person is born with. Functional Nasal Surgery restores the functionality of the nose and nasal activity with the use of tiny instruments inside the nose. This surgery will restore normal drainage passageways and help to decrease or eliminate sinusitis.

    In some cases, the shape and placement of a scar on the nose caused by cancer is extremely important since it is on the face. Moh’s Surgery attempts to remove the cancer and then hide any scars caused by the removal of the cancer. Your doctor will hide the scar within the natural folds of the skin, or use surrounding tissue to close the wound.

    Nasal Obstruction Surgery is performed to repair a deviated septum. A deviated septum occurs when the nasal septum or thin wall between your nostrils is displaced to one side. This in turn makes one nasal passage smaller than the other. When medical therapy has not helped a deviated septum, such as decongestants or nasal spray, Nasal Obstruction Surgery, or Septoplasty, may be the next step. During a Septoplasty, the nasal septum, or wall, is straightened and repositioned in the center of your nose.

    Tonsils are glands in the throat that work to help fight infection Many times, tonsils will get infected or inflamed, which results in swelling and pain. If this happens too frequently, a tonsillectomy may be necessary. A tonsillectomy is when the tonsils are removed, which will result in less infection or inflammation.

    One of the several subspecialties - focused areas of medical practice - is laryngology, which concentrates on the organs and function of the larynx, and how sounds are produced. Otolaryngologists specializing in laryngology diagnose and treat voice problems, particularly in performers.

    Like all tissues in the body, the laryngeal surfaces are covered by a thin layer carrying oxygen to the tissue through tiny capillaries. All of the tissues are designed to do a lot of work, but vocal tissues are especially vulnerable to damage from factors both inside and outside of the body. Overuse, and sometimes misuse, is common when untrained performers need to hit notes which are not within their natural range, or the volume is too high or prolonged.

    There may be other causes for vocal problems, both in those who use their voices professionally, and in the rest of us, as well. While it’s less common for the rest of us to develop problems from overuse or misuse, it does happen sometimes. The more common reasons, though, might be smoking, allergies, exposure to smoke or chemicals in the air, medications or dehydration. The delicate tissues need to be moist to perform well, and failure to stay hydrated or drinking too much caffeine can have damaging effects.
