When I came to Dr Ludwick, I was very hesitant because in the early 90’s I had the complete Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) done to “allegedly” correct a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates. I knew how painful the surgery was and the recovery had been. So armed with this knowledge in mind I …read more

Over the past 20 years I have been affected by allergy’s that generally were relieved by taking allergy shots on a weekly to monthly basis.

When I first saw Dr. Ludwick I was an Afrin addict with frequent sinus infections that often developed into URI’s. I never could kick them without the right antibiotic. Dr. Ludwick did sinus surgery and got me on liquid allergy drops, and the difference is awesome. My allergies are down 90%, and the surgery …read more

Allergy and Sinus

Over the past 20 years I have been affected by allergy’s that generally were relieved by taking allergy shots on a weekly to monthly basis. Eventually these conditions caused a chronic bacterial sinusitis that would flare up once or twice a year. The allergist’s response was to prescribe additional nasal medications, which resulted in a persistent inflammation and swelling of my nasal tissues and channels, blocking air flow and drainage. This condition was more severe at night and greatly affected my sleep and quality of life.

Fortunately, my allergist sent me to Dr. Ludwick . His examination determined that my problems were caused by my chronic sinusitis, combined with a deviated septum, which further reduced the air flow through my nasal passages. Dr. Ludwick’s operation on my nose on June 16, 2009 has significantly changed my life by restoring my nasal passages to normal healthy conditions. In addition to a successful surgical operation, these nasal improvements have also reduced my allergic reactions, allowing me to stop taking allergy shots.

I strongly recommend Dr. Ludwick to anyone who might suffer from similar conditions. It has now been nearly three years (three allergy seasons) since my nasal operation and my condition has been sustained with no recurrent nasal problems.

Allergy and Sinus

When I first saw Dr. Ludwick I was an Afrin addict with frequent sinus infections that often developed into URI’s. I never could kick them without the right antibiotic. Dr. Ludwick did sinus surgery and got me on liquid allergy drops, and the difference is awesome. My allergies are down 90%, and the surgery was a success. He is excellent at telling (and showing) the how’s and why’s of what he is doing and was available post surgery in case of concerns. He’s one of the most down to earth doctors you’ll ever meet as well, easy to talk to. – Jon

Allergy and SinusSleep MedicineSleep Lab

I had been struggling for years with being tired, low energy, and not sleeping well during the night. I had to take naps every day. I felt like I was missing out on life, my wife, and my children due to not having enough energy. About 10 years ago, my primary physician referred me for a sleep study. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and prescribed a CPAP. After a couple of years on the CPAP, the problems had not improved. I was still tired, had low energy, and still not sleeping well during the night. I had now developed anxiety.

My primary physician referred me to another surgeon and that surgeon recommended an operation to correct my deviated septum. Unfortunately, the surgery didn’t correct my problem. I still could not breathe freely through my nose. I struggled for another 5 years with this problem. Out of desperation, I discussed my problem with my primary physician again and he referred me to Dr. Ludwick. Due to the lack of success with my last surgeon, I was ambivalent about visiting with Dr. Ludwick. Nevertheless, the lack of quality life with myself, my wife, and my children motivated me to make an appointment.

I was totally impressed during with my first visit because he asked me questions about my condition that I should have known the answers because I had a previous surgery, but I didn’t know the answers. I was not as informed about my condition and my last surgery as I should have been. When Dr. Ludwick discovered that, he PATIENTLY educated me verbally and visually. He explained concepts where I could understand them. He even showed me on the computer where I could actually see the problem. I finally felt empowered. Then, Dr. Ludwick shared my options and gave me totally responsibility for the decision. I chose to have the surgery to correct my deviated septum and it was SUCCESSFUL. I am breathing freely. I have energy. I spend time with my wife and children on weekends instead of sleeping my life away. I truly thankful to Dr. Ludwick and strongly recommend him.

Allergy and Sinus

When I came to Dr Ludwick, I was very hesitant because in the early 90’s I had the complete Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) done to “allegedly” correct a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates. I knew how painful the surgery was and the recovery had been. So armed with this knowledge in mind I went to Dr Ludwick and was relieved to hear that the FESS surgery had improved leaps and bounds from when I had the surgery the first time.

I wasn’t relieved to hear that the first surgery had made a mess of my sinus’s and that FESS surgery, and allergy drops would be the preferred course to help me to breathe again. Dr Ludwick took the time to answer my questions, explain the situation, and prepare me for surgery and that was very comforting. I really appreciated the state of the art office with touch screen monitors that Dr Ludwick uses to explain problems; it makes it very easy to understand! He started very conservative with his approach and as he received more information (CAT scan) he amended the approach laid out a game plan that made sense. After the surgery was over I could (and still can) breathe amazingly well!

I really do appreciate Dr Ludwick’s upfront and very honest approach to treatments and consultations with patients.

Allergy and Sinus

I have been seeing Dr. Ludwick over couple of years and has noticed tremendous improvement with my allergies which I had received testing and treatment for five years with allergies with little or no effect till I was referred to Dr. Ludwick by my personal doctor.

Dr. Ludwick during my first visit recommended reconstruction of my air passage that was partial blocked and since undergoing the procedure, had noticed big difference to my health and reduced allergies problem.

I have recommended many friends and family to Dr. Ludwick as visit to allergy doctors in my opinion is wasteful. I was particularly impressed with both his sleeping lab and the visual impact of explaining to his patients diagnosis through his computer aided graphical user interface to assist in their making informed decision about their treatment.

Allergy and SinusHead and neck surgery

I am writing to inform others of the service I received from Dr. Ludwicks office. First of all I was extremely impressed in my initial consultation with the doctor. After a brief exam, he took some time on the monitor to fully educate me with regards to the current status/problems with my sinuses and the procedure he would recommend to remedy them. I actually had sinus surgery about 20 years ago and felt like I was worse off then before. I would still get fluid build up that would lead to sinus infections about 4/5 times a year. Having gone through a similar type procedure, I was expecting a considerable amount of pain post surgery with Dr. Ludwick. I was extremely surprised to actually feel about 10% of the discomfort I was expecting. I took only 1 pain pill in anticipation of the anesthetic wearing off and felt totally fine for the duration. I highly recommend Dr. Ludwick. He is obviously very gifted in his craft and has a great crew supporting him and his practice.

I received the fallowing procedures:

  • Revision Image Guided Endoscopic Sinus Surgery with Bilateral Frontal Sinusotomy
  • Bilateral Revision Total Ethmoidectomy
  • Bilateral Sphenoidomy
  • Bilateral Revision Maxillary Antrostomy with Removal of Tissue
