Chronic sinusitis is a very bothersome condition where the tissues lining the sinuses become inflamed. Sinusitis can have a severe impact on one’s life, causing pain and constant pressure to the face. Sinusitis can feel like a stuffy nose that never goes away, even causing you to lose the ability to smell. Sinusitis is not something to take lightly as it can keep you bedridden and give you congestion, as well as debilitating headaches.
Fortunately, there is a solution to this malady. We can perform a balloon sinuplasty that could be the answer to your chronic sinus problems. Dr. Lee Mandel’s vast experience and talented team can make this procedure a breeze without making any incisions, resulting in minimal discomfort and downtime.

If you suffer from a runny nose, postnasal drip, a decrease in your sense of smell, or constant congestion, you may be suffering from nasal polyps. These are benign growths that appear in your nasal cavity, occupying crucial space and obstructing your airway.
Rhinitis, sinus infections, asthma, allergies, and even aspirin sensitivity can contribute to the emergence of nasal polyps. Other reasons can include fungal sinusitis, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, or genetic factors that predispose you to these common growths. Whatever the cause may be and whatever symptoms you have, we can help solve your Nasal Polyps problems and get you on the fast-track to breathing easier.

Home Sleep Testing
Snoring is no fun; aside from disrupting your sleep as well as your partner’s sleep, it may be potentially starving your brain of oxygen. In adults, one of the most common reasons for snoring is known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). In short, OSA occurs when the muscles in your throat over-relax, causing your airway to tighten and, in some cases, completely close. When this occurs, breathing becomes very difficult. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is not a condition to be taken lightly. It can lead to severe conditions, including heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, hypertension, and more.
The first step towards a successful treatment is performing a home sleep test. Unlike most available tests that are highly uncomfortable, we use a specialized home test kit to minimize discomfort and expedite results.
