Nose Conditions

The ENT Partnership can assess, diagnose and treat the following conditions:

 

 

Nose Bleedstop
Nosebleeds are a common problem in children and the elderly in particular. Treatments include antibacterial cream, cautery with a chemical silver nitrate or electric cautery and clipping a small artery within the nose using endoscopic techniques.

Nasal Aestheticstop
Some patients do not like the shape of their nose. As ENT surgeons, we are uniquely placed to surgically improve the shape and function of the nose with Rhinoplasty. Open and closed approaches can be used depending on the complexity of the patient's requirements.

Chronic Sinusitistop
Some patients have chronic sinus inflammation, sometimes associated with nasal allergies, infection or nasal polyps. Treatments may include Balloon sinuplasty or Endoscopic sinus surgery.

Nasal Allergytop
The nose may be subject to allergic reactions to allergens in our environment. Allergy tests are required for allergies such as dust, pollens, moulds, cats, dogs, feathers, milk and eggs.

Nasal Blockagetop
A blocked nose may be due to a deviated nasal septum, large nasal turbinates or nasal polyps. The nasal septum can be straightened with Septoplasty and polyps treated with Endoscopic sinus surgery.

Recurrent Acute Sinusitistop
Some patients have frequent sinus infections. These may be treated with Endoscopic sinus surgery or sometimes with new minimally invasive techniques such as Balloon sinuplasty. Balloon sinuplasty is particularly effective if the frontal sinuses are involved.
