Nasal Airway Obstruction

When your nasal airway is obstructed, it can cause problems with breathing, lead to infection or cause further damage to the lining of the nasal cavities. Conditions that create a nasal obstruction are often chronic in nature and will persist for a number of months or reoccur frequently. Sinusitis is just one of many conditions that can be caused by or exacerbate a nasal airway obstruction, leaving the sufferer in almost constant pain and discomfort.

You may find that medications have no effect on a nasal airway obstruction if it is the result of a more serious health problem. Receiving a diagnosis will provide you with answers and guide you on your path toward effective treatment. Dr. Greg Levitin can help with both, and he is available for consultation at either of his New York offices.

At the office of Dr. Greg Levitin, we are focused on offering comprehensive care to our patients. Not only will you receive the diagnosis and treatment you need, it is our goal that every patient leaves our offices with any additional education and the support necessary to live a healthy life. Some nasal airway obstructions are caused by polyps, which can return even after surgery. Dr. Greg Levitin provides ongoing treatment that is effective in ensuring patients are able to continue to breathe freely long after their initial treatment session.

Treatment to Improve Breathing

Your nasal airway plays an important part in shaping how you breathe. If there is an obstruction, it can affect the quality of your breathing, regardless of whether you are awake or asleep. During the day you may feel you get tired much easier when engaged in simple activities. However, when you retire for the night, a nasal airway obstruction can result in snoring or disrupted sleep which further adds to your problems. Neither scenario is good for your overall health and can contribute to heart problems later in life if treatment is not pursued.

Two of the main treatments that Dr. Greg Levitin offers to address nasal airway obstruction are balloon sinuplasty or endoscopic sinus surgery. First, you will need to go through the process of having the cause of your nasal airway obstruction diagnosed. Once Dr. Levitin and his team know what is causing the issue, you will be offered the most suitable treatment for your needs.
