While his experience spans the care of the ears, nose and throat, along with disorders of the head and neck, Dr. Smith maintains a particular interest in the comprehensive treatment of nasal and sinus conditions. He is proficient at performing in-office balloon sinuplasty, an effective and less invasive treatment that restores normal sinus function, while avoiding the risks and recovery time of general anesthesia and more conventional surgery. A well-trained and highly-skilled clinician, Dr. Smith equally values the personal side of medicine and considers the care of each patient a privilege. He has gained a reputation for providing exceptional patient care to children and adults with both expertise and compassion, having an especially comforting rapport with children, who relate well to his easy and gentle disposition. Dr. Smith is board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology and the North Carolina Medical Society.
CornerStone Ear, Nose & Throat was the first practice to offer Balloon Sinuplasty in Charlotte and Union Counties.
Balloon Sinuplasty can be performed in the office with minimal bleeding and minimal pain in 20-30 minutes. The patient will be home the same night and possibly can return to work 24-48 hours later with virtually no pain medication required.
