Dr. PorterThe ear, nose and throat specialty at Lake Region Healthcare features Dr. William Porter. Dr. Porter is a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery and a Member of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations and the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons. 

Dr. Porter is certified as a provider of the minimally invasive technique called Balloon Sinuplasty for chronic sinusitus.  This treatment is available to eligible patients as a procedure performed in the clinic office. This alternative solution to endoscopic sinus surgery utilizes a small, flexible balloon catheter placed through a nostril into the blocked sinus passageway.  The balloon is then inflated to gently restructure and open the sinus passageway, restoring normal sinus drainage and function.
