Allergy Center

ENT Physicians of Mississippi provides comprehensive, IN HOUSE Allergy Testing and Treatment. Within this page is a list of our services, conditions, and resources.

Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis are very common conditions in the South. Allergies are a year round problem in our area due to high humidity levels, higher than average temperatures and longer growing seasons. Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system that occurs when an allergic person comes into contact with an allergen. This often causes symptoms such as: sneezing, wheezing, cough, congestion, and itching, among others. ENT Physicians offers a wide variety of allergy services for both seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis.

Sinus Center

Chronic sinusitis

Many people suffer from occasional sinus infections that can be treated with antibiotics which allow them to quickly return back to a normal condition. However, there are some that are not so fortunate. Some patients may suffer from very frequent infections (recurrent sinusitis) or have infections that never completely resolve (chronic sinusitis). These problems may need further evaluation and treatment by our team of ENT specialists. Our physicians can help you with these problems by offering either surgical or nonsurgical treatment options. We will work with you to decide the most appropriate course of action for your particular problem. ENT Physicians of North Mississippi can diagnose your condition in the office with the most advanced, up-to-date tools, including an in office CT scanner.

Conditions We Treat

  • Nasal obstruction
  • Rhinitis
  • Sinus pain
  • Sinus headaches
  • Acute and chronic sinusitis
  • Nasal polyps
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Fungal sinusitis
  • Smell disorder

Services & Treatments

In Office Procedures

We are very excited about recent techniques that have been developed to move treatments from the operating room to the office. There are many advantages of in office treatment, including: avoidance of anesthesia, quicker return to work, NO NASAL PACKING, less bleeding, less pain, and a much lower cost to the patient. Please schedule an appointment with one of our physicians if you feel that you are a candidate for in office sinus procedures.

Among in office procedures are:

  • CT Scans
  • Removal of lesions inside the nose
  • Radiofrequency Turbinate Reduction
  • Balloon Sinuplasty

Image Guided Sinus Surgery

When medications fail and less invasive means of dealing with sinus problems no longer work, our team of sinus surgeons is able to take it to the next level. No one wants to have sinus surgery, but when the need is there, you couldn’t be in better hands.
At ENT Physicians of North Mississippi, we live on the cutting edge of technology. We were among the first to abandon older methods of performing sinus surgery and begin using endoscopes in the 1980’s. Staying true to form, in the early 2000’s, we were among the first to embrace image guided sinus surgery. Image guided sinus surgery is no longer new, however, nowhere is it used more extensively than it is here.

Image guided sinus surgery is like having a GPS for your head that helps us to navigate safely through complex anatomy. It helps us to more effectively and more safely open up blocked sinuses.

To use this technology, a specialized CT scan is first done. Your CT scan is then uploaded into a computer which will reconstruct a 3 dimensional model of your head. Tracking devices and specialized instruments are then used in surgery to allow us to see EXACTLY where we are working by looking at an electronic map of your sinuses.

In Office CT Scan

CT scans are one of the most valuable tools for assessing the extent of the sinus problems. Our patients can often have this test performed during their appointment, without ever having to leave the comfort of our office and they are able to immediately review the x-rays with the physician offering immediate results.
