Why Nathan E. Nachlas, M.D.? Why might his innovative and leading-edge, minimally-invasive nose and sinus procedures be right for you?

With over 30 years at the forefront of innovation in care of the nose and sinuses, Dr. Nathan Nachlas and his Boca Raton practice hold several distinctions:

  • One of the original three surgeons in the United States to perform MINIMALLY-INVASIVE SINUS SURGERY (Johns Hopkins, 1985)
  • Instructor for the first American course on ENDOSCOPIC SINUS SURGERY (Johns Hopkins, 1985). This course introduced surgeons from around the world to minimally-invasive sinus surgery.
  • One of three sites in the United States to do the original FDA work on COMPUTER-ASSISTED ENDOSCOPIC SINUS SURGERY (Boca Raton, 1992). This procedure added computer guidance to minimally-invasive procedures used to treat sinus disease.  This is now the standard of care throughout the country for this type of procedure.
  • The first surgeon in the United States to perform IN-OFFICE, COMPUTER-GUIDED BALLOON SINUPLASTY (Boca Raton, 2014). This procedure involves utilizing computer guidance to thread a balloon into the affected sinus, dilating it, deflating it, and then removing it.  The result is a sinus that “breathes better”.
  • The first surgeon in the United States to perform IN-OFFICE, COMPUTER-GUIDED BALLOON SINUPLASTY WITH MINIMALLY-INVASIVE REMOVAL OF NASAL POLYPS (Boca Raton, 2014). In addition to performing balloon sinuplasty, now we can also manage removal of bothersome nasal and sinus polyps with a quick, minimal-recovery, in-office procedure.
