(WMC-TV) - Mid-South allergies can lead to brutal sinus infections, and now there is a new way to fight back.
It is that time of year where many Memphians suffer from sinus problems, but a center in the Mid-South is offering a quick in-office procedure to help.
"Half of my nose I could barely breathe out of," said Kenneth Moss describing his sinus and allergy problems.
"More recent years especially this year, it's worse for a lot of people," he said.
After 15 years of enduring Memphis allergy season – he was fed up.
That is where Doctor Jan Petri came it at Memphis Relief Center.
"It basically remodels the sinus open. And it does move bone, but without a lot of hard surgical techniques like we've used in the past," said Petri.
She performed a balloon sinuplasty on Moss. Using a small flexible device, the procedure went up through Moss' nose, inflated a small balloon, and opened up his sinus cavity.
