"I should have done this procedure sooner!"

I suffered for years with sinus related issues. How to breathe through my mouth, plug nasal passages, and postnasal drip. Dr. Latorre said I would be a good candidate for Balloon Sinus Dilation.

I should have done this procedure sooner! The difference in breathing ease is incredible to say the least it has been six months since the procedure and I have never been able to breathe so clearly and with no obstruction at all. The change in my quality of life has been amazing and very much appreciated.

"I am feeling much better"

I am a Urologist who suffered from chronic sinusitis for years. I had repeated CT scans and MRIs which confirmed the diagnosis of chronic sinusitis. I was tried on conventional therapy for chronic sinusitis such as decongestants and antibiotics without much success.

Recently, I consulted with Dr Randal Latorre, a friend and colleague regarding my chronic sinusitis. He recommended balloon sinuplasty. Although I am a physician, he took the time to explain the procedure, expectation and possible risks involved. I also read medical articles and literature about the procedure. Eventually, I had the procedure done by Dr. Latorre. The surgery was uneventful.  In my experience, the key to this almost painless procedure was his dedication, experience and patience in anesthetizing the sinuses. He spent a considerable amount of time to be sure that the sinuses are well anesthetized before starting the procedure.  At present, I am feeling much better, I no longer have sinus headaches and the bothersome feeling of congestion. My post nasal drip has significantly improved.

"Nothing short of amazing"

I came in for sinus problems I have had for most of my life. Getting up every day with stuffiness.  Dr. Latorre did the balloon treatment and has changed my life. I no longer wake up with pain and stuffiness in my head and face. I strongly recommend Dr. Latorre and his staff to anybody with sinus problems. Balloon Sinuplasty is nothing short of amazing.
