Another patient shares her success story!
Kristin Griffow is a patient who had traditional functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and is extremely satisfied. Here is her testimonial!
The St. Louis Sinus Center is recognized for offering the most cutting-edge, advanced technologies to sinus and allergy patients. Balloon Sinus Dilation is an example of this advanced technology. This simple procedure is performed in our office, under local anesthesia and is minimally invasive. Patients experience minimal downtime and fantastic results. Balloon Sinus Dilation is available for recurrent and/or chronic sinusitis sufferers and is designed to re-open blocked sinuses, restore natural ventilation and drainage and reverse the sinusitis cycle.
Due to anatomy, significant disease and/or insurance coverage, this procedure may not be an option for some patients. In this case, traditional functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) would be recommended. FESS is performed under general anesthesia, in the hospital or surgery center, and requires bone and tissue removal.
Kristin Griffow is a patient who had FESS and was extremely satisfied with her results! Here is her testimonial:
“I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am that I chose Dr. Gould. I was absolutely miserable and didn’t know what to do. I had tried everything under the sun to figure out what was going on with me.
Their amazing staff got me in right away and did a CT scan in the office the very same day. They found I had polyps all in my sinus cavities and this is why I couldn’t breathe, taste, sleep or smell for a good part of 2 years!
After exploring my options, I decided to have surgery and was ready to take an invasive approach. The surgery went great and I was able to breathe as soon as I came out of the anesthesia!
Making the decision to see Dr. Gould was the best decision I have ever made. My quality of life is so much better and my energy has skyrocketed!
I have not had one single problem since my surgery and I would recommend Dr. Gould to anyone. In fact, I already have!
Great doctor, great staff and unbelievable results.”
