Dr. Turner Wright is a pioneer in the field of sinus surgery, being the first surgeon in the Rio Grande Valley to introduce Balloon Sinuplasty. This revolutionary in-office ear, nose, and throat procedure effectively opens blocked sinus passageways without the removal of nasal bone or tissue, and provides long term relief for chronic sinus sufferers in 15 minutes. He operates with the latest medical equipment featuring the Fusion™ ENT Navigation System. Dr. Wright combines his surgical expertise providing patients a safe procedure with accurate results and fast recovery.
With the addition of the balloon sinus surgery procedure to the ENT arsenal, sinus surgery has truly been revolutionized. What used to be an outpatient procedure, with a week or more of recovery, has become an office procedure with virtually only hours of recovery.
