Nasal Polyps Treatment
Nasal polyps are soft tissue growths inside the nasal passages. These small growths are not cancerous but can lead to nasal obstruction and other complications. City Sinus Care offers multiple nasal polyps treatments to relieve symptoms and reduce health concerns at our clinic in NYC.
Symptoms of Nasal Polyps
If you suffer from nasal polyps, reduced airflow and nasal drainage will result. There is also a risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea, which stops breathing while sleeping and can lead to serious health conditions. Recognizing the symptoms of nasal polyps is essential so you can seek effective relief. Nasal polyposis chronic symptoms include:
- Restricted nasal breathing
- Disturbed or interrupted sleep
- Pain in the face or head
- Runny nose and nasal congestion
- Mouth breathing
At City Sinus Care, Dr. Levitin offers a range of non-surgical treatments for maintaining or removing nasal polyps in New York. Dr. Levitin will create a treatment plan based on your unique experience, significantly increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome to relieve your symptoms and improve your health.
Dupixent® can reduce the size of nasal polyps without the need for surgery. You will breathe easier and experience a reduced risk of complications from sleep apnea. Consult with Dr. Levitin to discover if this is the right treatment plan for you.
If you are not currently using nasal corticosteroids to maintain polyps, Nucala is another non-surgical alternative in NY. Dr. Levitin will assess your symptoms and any secondary nasal or breathing conditions. Treatments can begin immediately if you are an ideal candidate for Nucala.
Xhance® Nasal Spray
Xhance® is an advanced nasal spray that allows medicine to reach the area where polyps originate. You can achieve effective relief by blowing into a mouthpiece with the nose nozzle in place. Dr. Levitin is happy to instruct patients on using Xhance nasal spray at his NY offices.
The Sinuva™ implant releases controlled amounts of steroids into the nasal passages. Results include polyps that are reduced in size and reduction of symptoms that affect breathing, sinus drainage and sense of smell.
Other Nasal Polyps Treatments
If you have undergone surgery, Propel™ implantable stents are a dissolvable option that releases anti-inflammatory medicine to the sinuses. An Endoscopic shaver is another in-office procedure used to remove nasal polyps and is available from Dr. Levitin.
If your nasal polyps do not respond to non-surgical or minimally invasive interventions, Dr. Levitin may recommend endoscopic FESS. This procedure involves preparation using 3-D navigation to increase the success rate (up to 80%) of surgically removing nasal polyps.
