Sneezy, stuffy or sinus-pressured? A robust nose protects the body against respiratory issues, but millions of people suffer from nasal conditions. Common nasal problems at Ogden Clinic include chronic sinusitis, snoring and sleep apnea, and sinus infections.
Fortunately, our nose specialists in Ogden are trained to tackle a range of nasal problems with innovative methods such as non-evasive balloon sinuplasty, nasal endoscopy, and reconstructive rhinoplasty. We can diagnose and treat your worst symptoms and bring you back to health. Breathe easy and let us explore your best route to relief.
Sneezing, sniffling, and stuffy nose are common allergy symptoms, especially in Utah. By testing your body’s response to common allergens, our Ogden Clinic nose specialists can isolate what irritates you and provide a breath of relief to allergy sufferers. Our allergy testing screens 34 common allergens in Utah including tree pollen, dust mites, pet dander, grasses, weeds and molds.
People who suffer from uncomfortable sinus pain and sinusitis have a leading-edge treatment option at Ogden Clinic. Balloon sinuplasy is a minimally evasive in-office procedure performed by an ENT specialist to relieve sinusitis. During this procedure, your ENT specialist will inflate a small balloon inside your nasal cavity to reach the sinuses that are blocked. When the balloon inflates, the sinus cavity is opened.
With thousands of effective outcomes, this outpatient procedure gives Ogden patients immediate and long-lasting relief from the pressure and pain in their nose. Since there is no cutting of the tissue or nasal tissue, patients recover much quicker and with fewer complications.
In fact, most patients resume normal activity within two days. The advanced treatment provided by our seasoned nose and sinus doctors is the best way to treat sinusitis in Ogden.
People who suffer from severe breathing problems, birth defects, or trauma can benefit tremendously from rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reconstruct the nose, either to change the shape or improve its function. This nose surgery procedure can also be performed cosmetically at Ogden Clinic to change the appearance of the nose.
We are proud to offer this outpatient nose surgery procedure to Ogden and the surrounding areas. An Ogden Clinic ENT surgeon performs rhinoplasty with local or general anesthetic. During the procedure, your surgeon makes cuts across the base of the nose and reshapes the inner bone and cartilage to correct problems.
Patients will require a nasal splint for a short time after rhinoplasty. Swelling and bruising around the eyes is also common during healing after nose surgery. Your Ogden Clinic ENT Specialist will provide all follow-up care to ensure a healthy and safe recovery.
This surgical procedure moves blockages that can cause swelling, pain, and sinusitis. The careful use of endoscope provides a more precise examination without the need for external incisions. Patients who’ve used this type of procedure generally recover much quicker than open surgery.
While most of us don’t consider snoring to be a medical condition, loud, persistent snoring can become one if it significantly affects your quality of sleep. Sleep apnea is caused by shallow or intermittent breathing. Snoring is another common culprit of sleep apnea. Patients may gasp or choke in their sleep due to insufficient air intake.
Do not leave sleep apnea symptoms untreated. If you wake up sluggish or suspect that you may have sleep apnea, visit an Ogden Clinic ENT specialist right away. Left untreated, sleep apnea gives patients daytime drowsiness, poor concentration and slow reflexes. Our team of Ogden ENTs can set you back on a healthy sleep schedule with treatment to abate these sleep apnea symptoms.
If you experience pressure in your face, nasal congestion, or drainage of the nose, you may have sinusitis. This is a condition Dr. Bikhazi enjoys treating. For severe cases of sinusitis, Dr. Bikhazi can even perform outpatient surgery to open up the sinus cavity and relieve symptoms. If your sinus symptoms aren't improving, Request an Appointment today!
