CT Sinus Institute 1
The Connecticut Sinus Institute, a program of ProHealth Physicians, is the only practice in the Greater Hartford area that specializes in both the medical and surgical treatment of sinusitis. It is unique in that it is the only practice in Connecticut with 2 fellowship trained sinus specialists.
The physicians at the Connecticut Sinus Institute are board certified Otolaryngologists (Ear, Nose and Throat Doctors), that have additional training in Rhinology (Advanced Sinus and Skull Base Surgery). The Institute’s physicians, Dr. Seth Brown and Dr. Belachew Tessema are also fully trained in endoscopic skull base surgery. In these surgeries they work with the area’s top Neurosurgeons to offer minimally invasive surgery of the pituitary gland, skull base and anterior portion of the brain. Minimally invasive brain surgery includes such tumors as pituitary adenomas, meningiomas, esthesioneuroblastomas, inverted papillomas, juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas, squamous cell carcinomas, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leaks and clival chordomas. Their advanced skills lend particularly useful when treating sinus infections of the frontal and sphenoid sinuses and the physicians utilize all the latest technology to do this, including image guidance.
