Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery

Otolaryngology (ENT)

More than 37 million Americans suffer from chronic sinus and nasal conditions such as deviated nasal septum and nasal polyps, as well as recurrent infections. Surgery has been one of the most common ways to treat these chronic sinus conditions.

At Monmouth Medical Center, surgeons are treating sinus disease with the new LandmarX Image Guidance System, which lets them get a closer "look" at the sinuses and obtain a safer, better result assisted by this 3-D visualization capability. The surgeons are able to guide their instruments to the exact area within the fragile bones of the face. This allows the surgeon to be more precise in clearing tissue and restoring proper drainage to relieve the painful symptoms of chronic sinus condition. It reduces the possible risk of complications and the need for additional surgery, and patients recover much more quickly and comfortably.

About our Advanced Capabilities

Monmouth Medical Center was the first hospital in Monmouth and Ocean counties — and is among only a handful in New Jersey — to introduce this LandmarX Image Guidance System. It provides the latest in computer-assisted mapping technology for sinus surgery. This highly precise tool is revolutionizing the way sinus surgery is performed. And Monmouth's team of highly qualified ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons are the most qualified specialists to perform this surgery.
