Nasal polyps are noncancerous growths that develop in the lining of the nasal passages or sinuses. They are typically teardrop-shaped and vary in size. Nasal polyps can occur individually or in clusters and often affect both sides of the nasal passages. Find out more about nasal polyps treatment at NJ ENT and how we can help.

Nasal Polyps Causes

The exact cause of nasal polyps is not fully understood. However, chronic inflammation of the nasal lining and sinuses is believed to play a significant role. Conditions such as allergies, asthma, chronic sinusitis, and certain immune disorders may contribute to the development of nasal polyps.

The presence of nasal polyps can cause a range of symptoms, including:

Nasal Polyp Treatment

At NJENT, we offer personalized treatment plans to manage nasal polyps effectively. The approach may vary depending on the severity of the symptoms and individual patient factors. Some common treatment options include:

  1. Medications: Nasal corticosteroid sprays can help reduce inflammation and shrink nasal polyps. Oral corticosteroids or other medications may be prescribed to control inflammation and manage symptoms.
  2. Nasal Irrigation: Saline nasal irrigation can help flush out mucus and allergens, reducing nasal congestion and improving symptoms.
  3. Allergy Management: If allergies contribute to nasal polyps, identifying and managing allergens through avoidance measures or allergy shots may be recommended.
  4. Surgical Intervention: In cases where conservative treatments do not provide sufficient relief, surgery may be considered. Endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing nasal polyps and improving sinus drainage.

Nasal Polyps Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that is commonly performed to remove nasal polyps and improve sinus drainage. It involves the use of an endoscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera on the end. We insert the endoscope into the nasal passages, allowing for a detailed visualization of the sinuses. With this clear view, the surgeon can precisely locate and remove the nasal polyps using specialized surgical instruments.

This procedure aims to alleviate symptoms caused by nasal polyps, such as persistent congestion, difficulty breathing, and recurrent sinus infections. Endoscopic sinus surgery is generally well-tolerated and has a shorter recovery time compared to traditional open surgeries. It can provide long-term relief and improved quality of life for individuals with nasal polyps. If you are experiencing symptoms related to nasal polyps, consulting with an experienced ear, nose, and throat specialist is crucial to determine if endoscopic sinus surgery is an appropriate treatment option for you.

Reviews of Our ENT Services

After seeing my fifth ENT, Dr. Undavia is the first Doctor who actually listened to me. I had two CT scans that he actually took the time to look at as well as the written reports. He has a great bedside manner and I finally felt that I found the right doctor. I actually drove an hour and a half for my appointment yesterday, and it was well worth it. Today I received the text message first thing in the morning about setting up my surgery. I was texting with Regina who is also amazing and answered any question that I had. I was able to set up my surgery date with ease. Even down to the receptionist, who was super bubbly, and just had a great personality. The building an office itself was just good. Clean and friendly and welcoming. I trust that Dr. Undavia won’t disappoint when I have my surgery in December. Great experience!

I traveled from Toms River, NJ to Marlton based on the excellent reviews for Dr. Reddy. Location, wait time, the office, his assistant and his attention to my issues exceeded my expectations. I didn’t feel rushed and he thoroughly explained everything regarding treatment options. I highly recommend him for all your ENT needs.

Dr Gregory Smith is a great doctor. He performed surgery on me 18 months ago and this follow up showed great results. I recommend him to anyone needed ENT help.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with Dr. Undavia. When I first came to the office I had ruptured my ear drum. I was under another Doctor’s care and after 1 month I was no better and in so much pain. Dr. Undavia was recommended by a friend. After just 2 weeks my condition improved tremendously. I would highly recommend Dr. Undavia to anyone looking for an ENT. He is caring and kind and so is his nurse. Thank you Dr. Undavia
