ABOUT US

Dr. Huntley is one of the region’s most respected and well-known otolaryngologists.  Recognized every year as one of Indianapolis’ “Top Docs” by Castle Connolly and Indianapolis Monthly Magazine, he has over 25 years’ experience in the comprehensive treatment of adult and pediatric nasal, sinus, allergy, and ENT problems.

 

Dr. Huntley has extensive experience in the treatment of sinus and allergy disorders.  He and several of his partners were the first surgeons currently practicing in Indiana to be trained in balloon sinus surgery (“Balloon Sinuplasty”), and he has treated numerous patients in the office with this innovative technology for many years.  “Our practice is set apart from others because we are able to treat the entire scope of sinus and allergy problems,” says Dr. Huntley. “Because of our training and experience, we look at the whole picture.  We don’t just focus on your allergies, and we don’t just focus on surgery.  We look at you as a compete individual.”  Dr. Huntley’s philosophy is to individualize a patient’s treatment based upon his or her needs, and considers the patient’s environment, anatomy, diet, and other concurrent medical problems.  “Everybody is different,” he says, “and we have all to tools to offer whatever is needed to help solve the problem.” 

 

And if your sinus and allergy problems involve snoring or possible obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Huntley is uniquely able to help. He is one of the world’s foremost experts in the treatment of snoring and OSA, and has lectured internationally on the subject.  He is co-director of the most comprehensive instructional course in the world to teach other surgeons the latest and best OSA surgical techniques. He is the only physician in the region to offer ALL available treatments for the problem, including home sleep tests, CPAP, oral appliances, office procedures, and surgery.  He was trained by the pioneers in OSA surgery at Stanford University in the early 1990s and has since collaborated with some of the world’s top experts in the field on research projects. He has been a longstanding member of the Sleep Disorders committee of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and was a founding member of the International Society of Sleep Surgeons.  He helped pioneer robotic surgery for OSA, has been a consultant to industry, and was a principal investigator in the first clinical and/or FDA clinical trials for many innovative treatments for snoring and OSA, including:

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“I was blessed by being referred to CENTA for evaluation of my advanced-cheek cancer. Dr. Huntley entered the exam room and began explaining in "common language" my diagnosis and my only option of radical surgery. Dr. Huntley showed concern, and compassion. Dr. Rigas was called in by Dr. Huntley to participate in the exam process. Thankfully, I was scheduled for surgery as soon as possible. The "dynamic duo" of Doctors Huntley and Rigas performed an amazing 8 hour surgery. I am very grateful to be alive and healing."
