Balloon Sinus Dilation

“After suffering nasal congestion, ear stuffiness and pain and sinus headaches for several years, I decided I needed to do something about it. I remembered Dr. Setzen who had removed my son’s tonsils some years earlier and promptly made an appointment. At my initial examination, he discovered how closed up my nasal passages had become and proceeded to explain a procedure he could perform to open them up. As it could be done in office and with no down time, I was very interested. The following week I returned to his office for my balloon sinus dilation which took about one hour. My nose was anesthetized and I was comfortable throughout the procedure. That evening, I didn’t even need Tylenol and the next morning I awoke without a sinus headache for the first time in years!! I have felt so much better ever since and I’m so glad I did it. Dr. Setzen called me at home to see how I was doing and I had several follow up visits to check the healing process.”

“Dr. Setzen is one of the most skilled and professional doctors I know. He has been treating me and my family for over ten years, and we could not be happier.. I first met with him for several sinus problems including polyps. He performed sinus surgery shortly thereafter, and all my symptoms went away and have not returned. This surgery was probably ten years ago.. Couldn’t ask for a better doctor that is genuinely more caring and takes pride in his work.”

Chronic Sinusitis

“I have been a patient of Dr. Setzen for many years. He is thorough in his assessments and explains treatment protocol in a language lay people can understand. After suffering from chronic sinusitis for many years, Dr. Setzen performed surgery that has ultimately lessened the severity of my condition and limited the requirement for constant antibiotics. He is warm, friendly and engaging, and never rushes through his time with you. I continue to see Dr. Setzen for dermatitis of the ear canal and recommend him highly for any condition related to Otolaryngology.”

Extraordinary MD

“Dr. Setzen has cared for me for over 20 years. He literally saved my life. I had serious sinus issues, which he cured through surgery and devotion. One of the finest doctors I have ever met.”

“My 6 year old daughter had terrible sinus issues, Doctor Setzen did Endoscopic surgery on her. She is now 9 years old and is still doing very well. Dr. Setzen is an excellent doctor, very thorough, kind and he listens to what you and your child have to say. I would recommend him for any ear nose and throat issues.”

Life Changing Procedure

“Dr. Setzen was the first ENT to suggest a balloon sinus dilation for my sinus issues, which have plagued me for ages. The procedure was done in his office in less that 90 minutes….most of the time was for allowing the anesthesia to take effect. This was a life changing procedure. Relieved nasal congestion, facilitated breathing and minimized infections from colds. Kleenex has lost a good customer.”

Michael Setzen saved my life. I was so happy afterwards, my wife had the surgery 2 months after I did.

“Dr. Setzen is by far the best doctor for anything sinus related. I was bed ridden for months. I had Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, followed up by a couple of debreavment appointments, and I got my life back. Endless headaches, blurred vision, congestion, misery no more. I have about 8 people in my life that I am completely grateful for- and Dr. Setzen is on that list. His hands are steady, his skill is unparalleled, and the results were astounding. What a heck of a guy with a cool South African accent! Just GREAT!”

“Dr. Setzen performed balloon nasal surgery on me. It wasn’t painful and with the help from his staff it went great. Dr. Setzen took me step by step through the whole procedure which really helped me. I can now breath better and hopefully I will not get sinus infections this winter.”

Does Up-To-Date Procedures

“Dr Setzen preformed a balloon nasal surgery in his office which was greatly convenient to open the blocked nasal passages. It was a much better situation than going to the hospital. It was not painful and well tolerated. It has been 3 months since the procedure and it seems to be a success. There is no scaring either.”
