Nose, Sinus & Mouth Services

// ENT services

Quality care of the nasal cavity and sinuses is one of the primary skills of our team of our board-certified otolaryngologists. In addition, care of the oral cavity including issues with the tongue can be addressed by our physicians. 


Services we provide include:  

Chronic sinusitis, sinus culture retrieval with nasal endoscopy


For patients with chronic sinus issues, sinus culture retrieval with nasal endoscopy is a medical procedure we may perform to obtain a sample of mucus or tissue from the sinus cavities for analysis. This procedure is often performed to better understand sinus conditions and chronic infections. Patients may experience mild discomfort but that goes away quickly. By taking a sinus culture, our ENT expert physicians can identify more targeted treatments versus those that may be offered by general or family care physicians.


Sinus cauterization 


Sinus cauterization may be used to treat certain conditions, such as chronic sinusitis or nasal polyps. The procedure involves using heat or a cauterizing agent to shrink or remove tissues within the nasal passages or sinuses. The goal is to improve airflow, reduce inflammation, and alleviate symptoms. The specific treatment and techniques used in sinus cauterization will vary based on patient need.

Septal button insertion 


Septal button insertion is a procedure used to address nasal septal perforations or defects. The nasal septum is the wall that separates the two nostrils. When there is a hole or perforation in the nasal septum, it can lead to various symptoms, including nasal obstruction, crusting, and nasal discharge. Septal buttons are devices designed to temporarily or permanently block or seal these perforations. Patients find relief from symptoms associated with septal perforations and the button provides a physical barrier to protect the septum and nasal tissues.


Oral biopsy 


The purpose of an oral biopsy is to diagnose or rule out various conditions, including infections, precancerous lesions, or oral cancers. Our board-certified physicians will recommend a biopsy for various conditions of the mouth and throat.


Oral cancer procedures  


The team at Head & Neck Surgery of Kansas City are experts in various procedures related to oral and throat cancer. Biopsies, imaging studies, CT scans, endoscopies and other procedures are treatments offered in relation to caring for oral and throat cancer patients.

Balloon sinuplasty


Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat chronic sinusitis and improve sinus drainage. This procedure is designed to relieve the symptoms of chronic sinusitis, such as nasal congestion, facial pain, and difficulty breathing.

Endoscopic sinus surgery

For patients with chronic sinusitis, endoscopic sinus surgery may be recommended as a minimally invasive procedure to open the sinus cavity or remove polyups.

Deviated septum

For patients with a deviated septum, our board-certified physicians offer treatments such as a septoplasty to improve nasal breathing and remove obstruction. Other procedures such as a turbinate reduction procedure to reduce the size of nasal turbinates to open the nasal pathway are also performed at our practice.


Other oral procedures

The team at Head & Neck Surgery of Kansas City can perform a wide range of other procedures for oral conditions including a frenectomy and a parotidectomy to remove or modify part of the parotid gland or a septoplasty to correct a deviated septum.
