Head & Neck Problems
Many surgical advances are being made in this area. Procedures such as tonsillectomy and facial plastic surgery are becoming less invasive and new procedures are being developed to treat serious problems such as cleft palate, sleep apnea and deafness. Our team at Biltmore ENT and Biltmore Audiology & Hearing Aid Center can evaluate your condition and determine the source of your discomfort or problems and recommend the best course of treatment. Our head and neck specialists in Phoenix can diagnose conditions such as:
- Skin tumors
- Thyroid and parathyroid tumors
- Sleep apnea
- Upper airway obstruction
Treatments for Head & Neck Problems
Because there are so many different types of head and neck problems, treatments will greatly vary. Here are just a few treatment options:
- CPAP Machine: continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is administered by wearing a mask as you sleep which is connected to a machine that delivers constant air pressure so your throat muscles do not relax and close
- Inspire® Upper Airway Stimulation: surgical implantation of 3 devices that work inside your body to deliver mild stimulation to airway muscles to keep the airway open as you sleep without the need for a mask or hose
- Tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy: surgical removal of the tonsils and adenoids behind the throat and nasal passages, respectively, to treat breathing problems, recurring infections, etc.
- Septoplasty: surgery to treat a deviated (crooked) septum, the bone and cartilage that runs between your nostrils
- Turbinate surgery: to treat inflamed nasal turbinates, 3 bony structures in your nose that are covered in tissue
- Sinus surgery: to treat blockages in the sinuses using an endoscope to view the area and surgical instruments to remove blockages
- Balloon sinuplasty: to treat chronic sinusitis by inserting a small, flexible balloon catheter into the inflamed sinus area, inflating the balloon to open the sinuses and flushing out mucus; the sinuses remain open after the balloon is removed
