Cutting Edge, Minimally Invasive 3D Image Guided Sinus Procedure Performed for the First Time in Pasco County by Dr. Scotch

Dr. Brett Scotch, a board certified Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor) became the first sinus surgeon to perform a 3D computer image guided balloon sinus dilation procedure in Pasco county. The landmark surgery took place at the new state-of-the-art Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel.

Wesley Chapel, FL, August 11, 2014 --( During this high tech procedure, a small balloon is used to open inflamed sinuses in the same way that heart surgeons open up blocked arteries during balloon angioplasty. According to Dr. Scotch “the procedure is less invasive than traditional sinus surgery, and its success rate is very effective at relieving the symptoms commonly suffered by many chronic sinusitis patients.” In addition, it allows patients less down time and return to normal activities quicker that traditional sinus surgery.

The 3D image guidance system utilizes built-in electromagnetic (EM) surgical navigation technology. This technology allows for an additional level of precision and safety during the procedure. Balloon sinus dilational therapy has shown statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in patients suffering with chronic sinusitis.

“It has been a very rewarding experience to be able to pioneer this technology that will help many more people in the future in our community,” stated Dr. Scotch.

Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat is Dr. Scotch's private practice, located in Wesley Chapel, less than a mile from Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel.
