Dr. Jeffrey Marvel Offers Non-Surgical Solution for Sinus Relief in Tennessee Medical Practices

Tennessee Sinus Center offers new balloon sinuplasty to open blocked sinus passages.

Nashville, TN, June 22, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Jeffrey Marvel, M.D., a board certified otolaryngologist and medical director of the Tennessee Sinus Center, has specialized in ear, nose and throat medicine for more than 20 years. His practice now offers the new balloon sinuplasty procedure, a non-surgical solution for sinus relief that uses a balloon to open blocked sinus passages.

The concept of balloon sinuplasty comes from the field of cardiology where balloons have been used for years to gently dilate blocked heart arteries. Balloon sinuplasty is a simple and quick endoscopic procedure that opens and reshapes the sinus passages without tissue removal. Since the balloon is dilating tissue instead of removing it, the amount of trauma is greatly reduced.

“Balloon sinuplasty is such a breakthrough option for individuals who suffer from blocked sinus passages,” said Dr. Marvel. “A problem that once required surgery and quite a painful recovery is now an outpatient procedure with little or no pain, significantly less bleeding and immediate breathing relief. We are so happy to offer this to our patients.”

This new procedure is available at all of the five Tennessee Sinus Center locations in Tullahoma, Nashville, Fayetteville, McMinnville and Winchester, TN.

The Tennessee Sinus Center specializes in ear, nose and throat medicine, including sinus and allergy problems for children and adults. Diagnostic tests include endoscopic exams, allergy testing and low-dose CT scans. Marvel Clinics’ five Tennessee locations offer allergy testing and treatment, nasal and sinus care, endoscope sinus surgery, head and neck surgery, treatment for ear infections and diseases and hearing tests for adults, children and newborns by audiologists.
