Otorhinolaryngology in South Florida
Dr. Napoleon Bequer started his journey in the medical field in 1976. He had just graduated from the University of Zaragoza, and it was at that point when he decided to complete his internship at the Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia.
Afterward, he completed his residency in otolaryngology at the Medical College of Virginia. But Dr. Bequer didn’t stop there. He also completed a fellowship at the Ear, Head, and Neck Institute in Minnesota under Dr. Michael Paparella.
Dr. Bequer is board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and has made a home for himself in Florida. He’s served patients both in Tampa and West Palm Beach and has held a variety of impressive positions, including Chief of Staff at Palms West Hospital and Chairman of the Credential Committee.
Dr. Bequer is committed to helping his patients improve their quality of life, and his dedication and training to the practice of otolaryngology allows him to help Floridians live a better, healthier life.
Balloon sinuplasty is a balloon treatment for chronic sinusitis. It's a quick, minimally-invasive, in-office procedure that requires little to no recovery time. It's highly successful with patients whose sinus infections don’t respond to medications, specifically for those who have at least four sinus infections a year or a sinus infection for more than 12 weeks.
Your sinuses and sinus cavities produce mucus that moisturizes the nasal passages and keeps pollutants and diseases at bay. Eventually, this mucus needs to drain out, and it’s when the sinus passages get blocked that sinus problems arise. The purpose of chronic sinusitis surgery procedures is to clear those blocked sinus openings if non-surgical medical treatment isn’t up to the task.
ClariFix cryotherapy is a revolutionary, FDA-approved allergy and sinus treatment. It freezes the posterior nasal nerve and provides patients with symptom relief from a chronic runny nose or congestion. It's ideal for those with chronic rhinitis that no longer responds to nasal sprays, drops and pills.
The aim of inferior turbinate reduction procedure (an allergy and sinus treatment) is to shrink swollen nasal turbinates that obstruct your nasal passages, which can cause symptoms such as frequent sneezing, congestion, headaches, sinus infections, and sleep apnea.
