At Dubuque ENT, our doctors offer comprehensive sinus care. Oftentimes, sinus disease needs treated from “multiple angles”, with allergy treatment, medical management, and sometimes treatment of structural blockages. Our doctors are skilled at treating “the whole patient”, and not just the symptoms.
At your evaluation, your doctor will listen to your symptoms and concerns, and examine your head and neck. A nasal endoscopy may be performed to identify infection, blockages, or polyps. A CT scan may be ordered to identify disease within the lining of the sinuses. Finally, allergy testing may be ordered to help determine the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Chronic sinusitis affects an estimated 11 million americans. We now offer minimally invasive sinus and nasal treatments such as Balloon Sinuplasty™, PolypVac™, Latera Implant ™, and Inferior turbinate coblation. These simple office procedures help you to breathe freely again, and eliminate your chronic facial pressure and drainage. Our surgeons are also skilled at endoscopic sinus surgery, and use state-of-the-art techniques such as the Propel implant to maximize your healing.

Comprehensive Allergy Treatment
Stuffy nose, sneezing and nasal drainage are problems for some patients for one season of the year, and for others year round. Dubuque ENT has provided allergy services since the early 1970’s.
Dr. Benda is a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy, meaning he has undertaken extra study in allergy and asthma, including passing the AAOA Fellowship exam. He oversees the allergy program at Dubuque ENT. Each of the other physicians are also qualified to evaluate patients for allergy and provide treatment. Because they are also experts in treating diseases of the nose and sinuses, ENT allergists are best equipped to provide comprehensive nasal and allergy care.
Dubuque ENT’s allergy department provides skin testing, blood testing, and allergy shots. We also now provide sublingual drops for immunotherapy. See below for more information.
