Ear, Nose, and Throat Associates Announce PROPEL Technology

(WEST PALM BEACH, FL) JANUARY 28, 2016— Ear, Nose & Throat Associates of South Florida, P.A. is pleased to announce the addition of PROPEL technology as yet another way to provide the most effective treatments for people with chronic sinus issues.

PROPEL is an important new addition to the array of technology used in balloon sinuplasty in Palm Beach. It is a dissolvable stent that can be used to hold the nasal passages open after the procedure. As the stent dissolves, it releases anti-inflammatory drugs that can help reduce the risk of some of the complications that can arise from the procedure.

In clinical trials, PROPEL has been shown safe and is the only sinus surgery product proven with level 1-A evidence as to its effectiveness and safety. It reduces scarring, inflammation, and polyps while also lowering the need for oral steroid medication or further surgery.

Balloon sinuplasty cost can be driven by many factors, and it is important to consult with a physician to find out if your insurance plan covers the procedure. Because it is performed under a local anesthetic in an office setting, the cost is less than a more invasive procedure in an operating room.

Contact Ear, Nose & Throat Associates of South Florida, P.A. for more information.

We will be using such ‘local’ Hollywood talent as: Jo Anne Pflug (M.A.S.H. & multiple national TV series & shows), Taylor Blackwell (Dolphin Tale 2, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Mike Benitez (Serendipity with John Cusack & Kate Beckinsale, Ant-Man with Michael Douglas & Paul Rudd), just to name a few.”  In Sanity, Florida is also a SAG-AFTRA production.
