Sinus & Nasal Implants

Nasal and Sinus Implant Options

At times, a nasal implant may be necessary to reduce nasal airway obstruction symptoms and ultimately help patients Breathe Better Now.  Did you know that nasal breathing is responsible for about 70% of the airflow to the lungs?  If there is an obstruction of any kind, it can reduce airflow through the nose and affect a patient’s quality of life.  Some of the symptoms of an obstruction include:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Nasal blockage
  • Difficulty breathing through your nose
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Inability to get enough air during any kind of exertion or activity

We also have a sinus quiz  where you can evaluate where you are on a scale of difficulty with your breathing.  If you have an obstruction, there are a couple of medical breakthrough options that Dr. Kuperan with Houston Advanced Nose & Sinus recommends:  The LATERA SPIROX nasal implant and the PROPEL sinus stent. Dr. Kuperan recommends these implants as they have been proven to improve the outcomes of surgery by minimizing post-operative inflammation.
