ENT doctors, formally known as otolaryngologists, are medical specialists who focus on addressing conditions and illnesses impacting the ears, noses, and throats of patients.
The nose is one of the most versatile organs of the body. It cleans the air we breathe to prevent infection. When you smoke a cigarette, you are not only destroying your lungs, but you are also destroying the nasal passages from doing their job to prevent illness.
Do you find yourself constantly grabbing for tissues because of a runny nose? And has this been going on for quite some time — months, or even years? This constant drip may be a case of chronic rhinitis.
Have you been struggling with cold-like symptoms for an extended period of time? Have you tried everything and still can't find relief? If so, you might not have a cold at all. You could actually be suffering from nasal polyps.
It's unusual to hear of anything freezing in Arizona in the summer, let alone noses. But Dr. Franklyn R. Gergits, lead physician, and sinus surgeon at The Sinus and Allergy Wellness Center of North Scottsdale are doing just that. On August 28, 2018, he performed the first 5 ClariFix procedures.
