Nose, Sinus & Sleep Services

Sinus Specialist in Annapolis and Severna Park, MD

The nose is the organ of smell and the main passageway for air into and out of the lungs. Keeping it healthy and working properly is extremely important. At Severn River ENT, we assist you in in all of your nasal and sinus concerns.  We handle everything from deviated septum treatment and nasal breathing disorders to balloon sinuplasty and sleep apnea. You won’t get better one-on-one care from any other ENT physicians in Severna Park and Annapolis, Maryland.

What are the Sinuses?

The sinuses are cavities that sit around the nasal passage. They are lined with membranes that constantly secrete mucus. Normally this mucus drains into the nose, but the sinuses can become inflamed, preventing proper drainage. When this occurs, the sinuses become stuffed with mucus, causing a number of symptoms. This condition is what is known as sinusitis.

When it comes to issues relating to the sinuses, Dr. Lee Kleiman and his team are able to deal with the full range of symptoms and provide among the best chronic sinusitis treatment Annapolis has to offer. In actual fact, many of these symptoms point to a single condition: sinusitis, which affects over 37 million Americans every year. Sinusitis has a range of severity, and can be mild or very harsh. Depending upon the severity, different forms of treatment may be recommended by Dr. Kleiman. In some cases of sinusitis, therapy delivered by a sinus doctor that is designed to treat allergies and infections may be effective. In other cases, more drastic measures are needed.

Nose and Sinus Disorders and Treatments

Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty is a safe and effective procedure for sinusitis patients who are not responding well to medications and have either had a sinus infection for more than 12 weeks.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is surgery to reshape the nose. It can make the nose larger or smaller; change the angle of the nose in relation to the upper lip; alter the tip of the nose; or correct bumps, indentations, or other defects in the nose.

Sinusitis

Many patients who cannot find relief from chronic sinusitis and symptoms like congestion, sinus pressure, and sinus headaches, have success with Balloon Sinus Surgery.

Deviated Septum

Although a deviated septum is a condition affecting millions of people across the US, it can be treated to provide permanent relief to those that suffer from it.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Sinus surgery involves the precise removal of diseased sinus tissue with improvement in the natural drainage channels by the creation of a pathway for infected material to drain from the sinus cavities.

Sinus Headache

Sinus headaches occur when the sinus passages behind your eyes, nose, cheeks, and forehead are congested.

Allergy Testing

Dr. Lee Kleiman offers a variety of tests, including skin testing, to evaluate allergic reactions to specific allergens. All tests are done in-office.

Allergy Treatments

At Severn River ENT, we can tell you what’s causing your allergy symptoms AND we’ll give you relief.
