Dr. Bergstein, 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 patient’s suffering from chronic sinusitis. Dr. Bergstein now 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.

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.
