Dr. Raithatha, who has helped thousands of patients overcome their sinus problems, is fortunate to be among the first in the area to offer a new breakthrough medical device for patients suffering from chronic sinusitis. Dr. Raithatha offers the Propel implant as part of his treatment options.  The Propel implant is the only device in the industry backed by Level 1A evidence and proven to enhance and significantly improve outcomes. When placed in the ethmoid sinus following surgery, PROPEL decreases scarring and inflammation, reducing the need for additional surgical procedures as well as  oral steroids and their potential side effects.

The spring-like PROPEL implant props open the ethmoid sinus to maintain the surgical opening, delivers an anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinus lining, and then dissolves, avoiding the need for removal. For more information, please watch the video below:

Testimonial

Love this location and have been back a second time! Came here with some severe sinus congestion and knew something had to be up. One week prior I went to the local urgent care in Union Square and they gave me some crap that did NOT work and I felt worse and worse…I am SO HAPPY that I found Dr. Raithatha. He took his time in explaining what was happening with my nose and even showed me the video of how clogged and congested it was. He then explained in detail what medications I would need etc. etc. I was having some headaches afterwards and was able to call him afterwards for more questions and he was concerned and friendly…I am glad I found a great ear nose throat doctor for all of my sinus infections.

The most knowledgeable and genuine doctor I have ever met. I am the type to avoid doctors at all cost, however he understood my humor and really broke down everything for me. I would highly recommend him! The whole staff was warm and sweet and the wait time was not long at all. If you need a good ENT, see Dr. Raithatha!

I've been a longtime visitor to ENT and Allergy Associates. My usual doctor was unavailable to see me today, and luckily Dr. Raithatha was free. He was courteous and detailed. While going to the doctor when you feel awful is never fun, I'd happily see him again.
