In Office Balloon Sinuplasty
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in our office. During this procedure, a small balloon is inserted into your sinuses and is then inflated to dilate (widen) the openings of your nasal sinuses. Saline spray is then used to “flush out” the sinuses so they can be drained and cleared of any mucus, pus or discharge that is causing congestion.
Because balloon sinuplasty is widely considered to be very safe and effective with low risk of complications and it can be performed in-office, under local anesthesia, as a minimally invasive procedure, it can be an excellent option for patients that Dr. Webster deems to be good candidates for success.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Outpatient surgery that is performed using small telescopes to view and treat the inside of the nose and sinuses. This procedure is performed to treat chronic sinusitis, polyps and growths/tumors. Recovery time varies but is generally 3-7 days. For more information on sinus surgery visit the America Rhinologic Society
Immunotherapy (Allergy shots or drops)
For more information visit our Allergies page.
Septoplasty is performed to correct a deviated septum. This surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure and involves removing or reshaping the deviated cartilage and bone. Recovery is generally 1 week. For more information on septoplasty visit the American Academy of Otolaryngology
Dacrocystorhinostomy (Endoscopic DCR)
A surgical procedure to eliminate fluid and mucus retention by creating a new teardrain between your nose and your eyes. This surgery may be needed if your tear duct has become blocked.
Nose surgery (or rhinoplasty) is sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping.” Rhinoplasty can improve the appearance and proportion of your nose or correct a breathing problem associated with the nose (such as a deviated septum). For more information, visit our Nose Reshaping page at Oregon Coast Plastic Surgery.
Inferior Turbinate Reduction
The procedure may be completed in the office (coblation turbinate reduction PDF) for in the operating room (sub mucous resection). Instruments are used to decrease the size of the tissue inside the nose thereby improving nasal breathing. This procedure is often performed with septoplasty.
