Why Choose Us

Why Choose Us

Our patients choose Houston Sinus and Allergy because we are able to diagnose and treat what others are not capable of. We have multiple treatment options available, and we leverage medical advances that other ENTs don’t.

Over and over we hear that patients are frustrated by ENTs that tell them they have to just take antibiotics, there are no treatment options or that the ENT is not up to date with new technology. They think that all ENTs are the same and have given up hope on getting expert sinus treatment.

Houston Sinus and Allergy’s sole purpose is to treat conditions with a laser focused intent to find solutions for you that others are not able to. Not all ENTs are the same!

The Fiagon Navigation System

We are 1 of 5 doctors in the US who have a FIAGON in our office! This is essentially a GPS navigation system for us to map out a patient’s sinuses for precision treatment on the areas that need to be treated.

The Fiagon Navigation System uses an electromagnetic tracking system to locate surgical instruments during a surgery in relation to a patient’s CT scan. The use of surgical navigation tools allows surgeons to significantly reduce the risk to patients on each intervention as well as shorten surgery time by reducing the number of instrument changes.

Houston Sinus and Allergy utilizes a Xoran MiniCat imaging system as a newer non-surgical technology with many benefits:

  • Shortened time for diagnosis
  • 90% less radiation than conventional CT’s
  • Visualization of the disease
  • Provides faster and better treatment options
  • Comfortable, patient friendly design
  • Gives you peace of mind
