Specialized Surgeries for Sinus, Nasal, Head and Neck

Sinus and Nasal

Chronic sinus issues can disrupt your quality of life. Problems of the nose or sinuses often can be addressed with medication or other nonsurgical treatment, however, if these options prove insufficient or the condition is of such severity as to require greater intervention, an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist may recommend surgery. As otolaryngologists, the physicians at Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Associates of Central Pennsylvania in Altoona, PA are uniquely trained to provide state-of-the-art, comprehensive, medical, and surgical management of nose and sinus (rhinology) diseases in both children and adults.

If you are experiencing nasal or sinus problems, it is important to seek a professional medical evaluation. Our highly trained experts will conduct a comprehensive diagnostic exam and work with you to determine the right solution for your specific needs.
