Now there's a breakthrough device that removes nasal polyps quickly and easily,
in a simple office procedure


The breakthrough PolypVac device was recently demonstrated on the TV show The Doctors. 

Nasal polyps can have a huge impact on life. Polyps can make it hard to breathe, sleep, and enjoy the taste of food or the smell of flowers. They can also cause facial pain and pressure. Polyp removal relieves symptoms by immediately improving airflow through the nasal passages. 

Traditionally, polyp removal has required surgery in the operating room, under general anesthesia. The ENT Clinic of Iowa is among the first in the United States to offer the innovative PolypVac® device for removing nasal polyps in the physician’s office, under local anesthesia, in just a few minutes.

Call ENT Clinic of Iowa at (515) 218-7539 today to schedule an appointment to learn more about this new option for quick relief.

“This new treatment offers a much-needed alternative for patients... Results are immediate, and patients are thrilled to now have a minimally invasive option that does not involve a long recovery time, or the side effects and possible limited effectiveness of steroid medications.”
