The miseries of sinusitis go far beyond pain and pressure. Although chronic discomfort tops the list of common complaints, a considerable percentage of patients also report a near-total loss of taste and smell—two essential elements of a full life.
This video tells the tale of what happened next to one woman struggling with sinusitis.
As the story attests, the patient in question experienced a total reversal of her symptoms with the help of a small, springlike medical device known as the Propel sinus stent. This basic elastic scaffold is used to hold the airway open following sinus surgery, eventually dissolving into the body without any need for a follow-up procedure. As the patient said:
“Oh it worked great,” she said, “I’m not getting sinus infections like I used to. I can smell, I can taste, I can live a normal life.”
My Los Angeles sinus surgery practice was one of the first in Los Angeles to offer the Propel stent. To learn more about how you can achieve lasting relief through superior medical technology, contact your local sinus surgeon today.
