Setting the standard for all ear, nose, neck and throat conditions
Snoring & Sleep Apnea – There’s no reason to keep your spouse awake at night anymore. Not when your snoring problem can be corrected with the latest surgical procedures, including septoplasty, to normalize sleep. Snoring can also be a symptom of sleep apnea, a life-threatening condition caused by obstructions in the throat and nose area, which is also treated by Dr. Porter.

Endoscopic nasal & sinus surgery – Complicated sinus infections can be more safely and effectively performed with functional endoscopic sinus surgery, such as endoscopic antrotomy to drain an infected cheek sinus. Dr. Porter is well-trained in endoscopic surgery as well as the traditional methods of sinus surgery. For more information, click here.
Balloon Sinuplasty™ – This procedure to treat sinusitis uses a catheter equipped with a small balloon that is inflated to open blocked sinuses and allow proper sinus drainage. For more information on Sinus Infections, click here.
Pediatric Care – We offer leading-edge ear, nose and throat care for children, including surgery for ear tubes, tonsils and adenoids.
