Center of Excellence

Sinus infections controlling your life?

Ready for expert sinus care?

You have been to Family Practice and Urgent care physicians, over and over, but your sinus infections keep coming back.  Antibiotics, steroids, nasal rinses – everything you do produces short-term benefits. You are never entirely clear of your sinusitis, and you’re tired of this recurring burden on your life.

Indianapolis Sinus Center is a Sinus Center of Excellence

As an exemplary medical office, demonstrating excellence in all areas of care and treatment for sinus patients, Indianapolis Sinus Center has been deemed a Center of Excellence by Entellus Medical.

What does this mean to you, the patient?

With the introduction of office-friendly technologies, Entellus Medical has made it possible for effective sinus treatment to transition from an in-hospital surgery to an in-office procedure, allowing physicians more control and offering patients convenient treatment options.  Balloon sinus dilation has enabled physicians to provide alternative treatments that are more cost-efficient, accessible, and satisfactory for the majority of sinus patients.

There are thousands of specialty physicians across the country who use balloon sinus dilation devices and technology from Entellus Medical.  Among this number are a select few who have met the standards established by Entellus to serve as a demonstration and training site for physicians using Entellus products and procedures.

Indianapolis Sinus Center has met the standards. Dr. Anthony Sanders, Dr. Nicholas Hollenkamp, and staff whose skill and patient success with balloon sinus dilation and coordinated procedures has been designated worthy of distinction as an Entellus Center of Excellence. They have been selected by Entellus to train other physician specialists in advanced sinus treatment.

Dr. Sanders and Dr. Hollenkamp are one of the few who can offer their patients best practices in procedural techniques and skill for balloon sinus dilation alone or combined with other technologies, as well as expertise in medicine, patient care, patient rapport, and all services for sinus patients.

What is an Entellus Center of Excellence?

This designation means that Dr. Sanders, Dr. Hollenkamp and their staff have participated in these Entellus Training and Education programs:

  • Master Procedural Techniques through the Entellus Live Case Center which broadcasts cases live from various offices around the country offering practical how-to guidance and technique for standalone balloon dilation up to cases focusing on more advanced diseases by using additional systems and techniques.
  • Technique Refinement through hands-on experience in an Entellus approved training lab to develop and expand knowledge and expertise with Entellus technologies and procedures.

Indianapolis Sinus Center also participates as an Entellus Center of Excellence training site for the Peer-to-Peer Education Program which connects physicians with peers who have successfully transitioned sinusitis treatment from an in-hospital setting to an in-office environment.

As a Center of Excellence physicians, Dr. Sanders and Dr. Hollenkamp provide training and education by hosting fellow ENT specialists in the office to see cases and share best practices on procedural techniques for balloon sinus dilation and the integration and performance of balloon sinus dilation procedures in the office.

Physicians also learn advanced techniques for treatment of patients with more complex diseases, and how to combine additional necessary techniques with balloon sinus dilation to extend the benefits of office-based procedures to a broader group of sinus patients.
