Image-guided Navigation for Balloon Sinuplasty

Hill Country ENT is excited to bring new technology and innovation to our patients having balloon sinuplasty here in Central Texas. The Real-time TruDi navigation system allows Dr. Lano to have a 3D mapping of the sinuses during balloon sinuplasty.

Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation

Narrowing of the Eustachian tube causes patients to experience ear pain, pressure, fullness, popping, ringing, or muffled sounds in the affected ear(s). Dr. Lano uses Eustachian Balloons to inflate and dilate the eustachian tube and relieve the symptoms.
