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™ October 15, 6 pm in the Osceola Conference Room at St. Augustine’s Flagler Hospital. The interactive lecture is designed to educate patients and the community about professional otolaryngology, ear, nose, and throat care, and Balloon Sinuplasty™, a minimally-invasive endoscopic procedure that 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. Her lecture is free and open to the public.
