Chronic Sinusitis Treatment
Our surgeons offer PROPEL®, an advanced sinusitis treatment for patients undergoing sinus surgery. PROPEL® is the first and only device clinically shown to improve the outcome of nasal surgery performed to treat chronic sinusitis.
How does PROPEL® work?
PROPEL® is a small, lightweight device implanted into the nasal cavity after surgery to ensure sinuses remain open. The spring-like device delivers anti-inflammatory medication directly into the healing tissues. Since the device dissolves on its own, there is no need for removal.
