When a valuable medical device appears in the world of ENT surgery, I pay attention. That’s why I was one of the first surgeons in Southern California to offer balloon sinuplasty, and it’s why I have helped to pioneer the use of the PROPEL sinus stent in the past year.
The PROPEL stent is simplicity itself – a biodegradable spring that holds open the sinuses after surgery for chronic sinusitis, helping to promote drainage and healing. A time-release steroid then firms up surrounding tissues until the stent dissolves. The PROPEL stent has been gaining an increasingly broad professional fan base among sinus surgeons nationwide.
This website will soon be hosting a Google Hangout with the woman who developed the stent. If you’d like to learn more about the device’s origins and functions, bookmark this page and check back on the 7th at 9am PT. To get in touch with an expert Los Angeles sinus surgeon, contact me today.
