SAENT Founder Dr. Kalpana DePasquale to Lecture on Treating Chronic Sinusitis with Balloon Sinuplasty™ Oct. 15
Are you a patient who suffers from chronic sinusitis, or a caregiver who treats someone with the ailment? You’ll want to mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 15 when Dr. Kalpana DePasquale, DO and founder of St. Augustine Ear, Nose & Throat and Avanti Medical Spa, will share information on treating the condition with Balloon Sinuplasty™.
Dr. DePasquale will host an outreach program and interactive lecture to educate patients and the community about professional otolaryngology, ear, nose, and throat care, and her specialization in Balloon Sinuplasty™. The minimally-invasive procedure involves inserting a small tube into the nasal cavity to find a blockage, then inserting and inflating a smaller catheter to open the passageway. The endoscopic procedure accomplishes the same results as traditional surgery without requiring an incision.
Patients with chronic sinusitis “can suffer from reduced quality of life and reduced productivity and they may also experience pain and discomfort in and around the face due to narrow, inflamed, or swollen nasal passages,” said Dr. DePasquale. “A myriad of treatments are available to treat the malady, but Balloon Sinuplasty can save our patients time, money and relief from pain due to surgery.”
Dr. DePasquale is one of the leading physicians in northeast Florida who performs the specialized Balloon Sinuplasty™ procedure and serves as a faculty member annually at The Sinus Forum, a conference-style event that brings together otolaryngologists from across the nation.
The event begins at 6 pm and will be held in the Osceola Conference Room at Flagler Hospital, 400 Health Park Blvd. in St. Augustine. The talk is free and open to the public, and attendees will enjoy light refreshments. For more information, call 904.461.6060, or visit our websites at www.avantimedspa.net and www.saent.net.
