Chronic Sinusitis Treatments in Pompano Beach, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Propel® – For Chronic Sinusitis
If you suffer from chronic sinusitis, you may consider extensive sinus surgery for relief. This operation may be daunting and can add fears about pain, anesthesia and the healing process. However, there is a way to improve your outcomes of sinus surgery.
Dr. Lapco proudly uses the new clinically proven tool, Propel®, to make the relief of chronic sinusitis more effective. Propel® is a dissolvable, sinus stent that is proven to enhance the results of a sinus surgery.
After surgery, the spring-like Propel® is placed into the pathways where the sinuses drain, maintaining the surgical opening of this crucial area while the body heals. It also contains anti-inflammatory medication that is slowly administered to the lining of the sinuses during the healing process. The medication decreases scarring by 70%, polyp formation by 46%, and inflammation by 36%, which are all common complications of sinus surgery.
After the sinuses heal, Propel® fully dissolves, so additional surgery is not needed for removal. With this new device, you can avoid unnecessary surgeries and oral steroid medication, which can have burdening side effects. Propel® has been shown to be safe in clinical trials.
If you suffer from chronic sinusitis and determining whether you should undergo sinus surgery, contact Dr. Lapco at his Pompano Beach, FL office to see if you can benefit from Propel® today. Dr. Lapco’s Pompano Beach office is located in Broward County just 10 miles from Coral Springs and 12 miles from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
