Email Subject: My Experience with Dr. Trimble
Now let me tell you a story about a man named Fred. Before my nasal surgery I had a deviated septum; difficulty breathing at night (where if you were lying on your side gravity would drain fluid from the upper side of my sinuses to my lower allowing some air to penetrate); I found myself breathing through my mouth more and more; and I snored, my how I snored, many of my friends would comment on my snoring, considering it the loudest they have ever heard. Why I had put up with the problems for years I really don’t know. But when I finally realized that the “thing” which periodically became visible when it protruded from my nose was a polyp that had its home in my right frontal sinus, I said enough is enough! My Primary Care Physician gave me a referral to Dr. Monty Trimble, which was the best thing that has happened to me. After an examination that included X-Rays it was determined that one of my frontal sinuses was plugged with the “thing”; two of my sinuses was almost full of material; and my septum was deviated. Dr. Trimble gave me a detailed explanation of the procedure he would use to repair my sinuses, as well as options. I was retiring and really wanted to take care of this problem sooner rather than later. The operation was scheduled at a well-run medical facility in Fort Worth that just does outpatient operations; it lasted almost two hours, and I was allowed to go home that same day.
Recovery, to a large extent, depends on the individual. Some people heal faster than others but the key is to follow the instructions given. Due to the trauma it took a couple of days of healing before I could get up and around. I have found Dr. Trimble to be a dedicated professional with a great “bedside manner”, he listens! He is also very talented; God has given him an amazing gift, the ability to do intricate operations; and to do follow-up procedures in his office. Since the operation and healing, I have been able to breathe through my nose for the first time in years; I am smelling things with a greater degree of clarity especially flowers and fruit. I no longer snore which is a blessing for my wife and friends. Dr. Trimble and his staff have been a Blessing to me and I feel fortunate to have him handle my sinus problems. The only question remaining is “why did it take so long before I took the steps to have my sinuses cleaned out and resume breathing normally”! ~Fred Muller
Dear Dr. Trimble and Staff,
I have had all my adult life problems with my sinuses and the problems were often triggered by season allergies. Consequently, through the years I have had two to three or more sinus infections a year.
In April 2014, I revisited Dr. Trimble and had an exam and a CT scan of my sinuses in the office. Thinking I would be considering surgery on my sinuses under anesthesia, I was pleasantly surprised when I was told of a new procedure called Sinuplasty. I prepared and had the procedure in the office on April 21, 2014. My recovery was not long and in subsequent visits, I was released in three months.
I am happy to report I have not had a sinus infection since December 2012. My nasal passages stay open more and respond to antihistamine and steroid sprays. Drainage is much better and my head does not feel heavy. Earlier this year, I had a viral upper respiratory which was probably the flu, however I did not get a secondary sinus infection.
I am glad I had this procedure and the positive change it made. I commend Dr. Trimble and his staff in the office for their care and support. You may share any part or this entire letter if desired.
After years of not being able to smell, within weeks of the Balloon Sinuplasty I began smelling gradually. Along with my smell, I began to taste foods again. It brought tears to my eyes the first time I tasted something. Considering these two senses go together, I had just thought I would never smell or taste again. Smell and taste continue to improve daily. I can't thank Dr. Trimble enough. He and his staff are truly amazing. If you have severe sinus infections, don't put this surgery off. After years of suffering, life has taken a major up swing. I'm learning smells and taste all over again. I don't regret for a moment having this done. June 16, 2014 http://www.vitals.com
After two rounds of antibiotics prescribed by other doctors for a "sinus infection" and 2 months of not breathing out of my right nostril, I went to Dr. Trimble to try to get some relief. I had a CT Scan done prior to my appointment so we could discuss it during the appt. On my initial appointment visit, he spent an incredible amount of time with me discussing my scan, my breathing/nose problems, and answering my questions. Dr. Trimble said the surgery would take place on the right side of my nose, but that if he saw something that needed correcting on the left side during surgery, he would do that. Well, I had my surgery and Dr. Trimble removed the mass and fixed the right side septum. He said the left side was fine and did nothing to that. I appreciated his conservative approach. Dr. Trimble spent a lot of time with me on my follow up appointment, as well. I never felt rushed. He is a great ENT and I feel much better thanks to him! May 30, 2014 http://www.ratemds.com
Angie's List review:
A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Trimble after she had a balloon procedure done in the office. She kept raving about how much better she felt. I was desperate for help, so I went in as well. I was thoroughly impressed and decided to have balloon dilation in the office as well. 6 weeks later and I feel so much better. I can breathe better without sinus Infections.

I have had sinus/allergy issues for years. Other Drs had recommended major surgery, but Dr Trimble offered me an alternative. He did a new balloon dilation procedure in his office. My results have been amazing. I don’t have sinus infections anymore…I haven’t felt this good in years! December 5, 2012 http://www.ratemds.com
I had a balloon procedure on a Friday and felt better by Monday. The procedure was easy and Dr. Trimble seemed to be really concerned about how I was feeling. June 12, 2012 http://www.vitals.com
After years of suffering with sinus issues, I finally was referred to Dr. Trimble by another doctor. Dr. Trimble took the time to explain my options. I chose a new balloon procedure that Dr. Trimble did in the office on a Tuesday afternoon. The procedure was so easy and painless, I wasn’t sure it really did anything. It has been 6 months, and I haven’t had a sinus issue since. I am breathing better and I can actually smell again. Amazing! I am so pleased; with I’d found him sooner.

He cured me!
I have had sinus problems for years…finally decided to do something about it after I found Dr. Trimble on the Web. I wasn’t excited about the idea of having surgery…thankfully; Dr. Trimble trained on a new office procedure that allowed me to avoid surgery. 2 hours after the “balloon” procedure, I felt great. Hope it lasts! July 13, 2011 http://www.vitals.com
I had sleep apnea and chronic congestion for years. I saw Dr. Trimble and we discussed a turbinate reduction (“turb”) and decided to give it a try. Results were amazing! He did the procedure in his office with local anesthesia. My insurance did not cover the wand used for the turb, so that was my only out-of-pocket cost. I have been very pleased with the results — I no longer need a CPAP to breathe while I sleep, I am sleeping better, congestion is rare (instead of constant), and migraine episodes have decreased by 80% or more. Dr. Trimble has been helpful, personable and provided lots of ideas and information regarding my condition. June 16, 2011 http://www.ratemds.com
