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:
