Sinusitis


As an ENT specialist, one of the most common conditions I treat is sinusitis. Sinusitis is a condition that affects millions of people around the world, causing inflammation of the sinuses and leading to a range of unpleasant symptoms.


Symptoms of sinusitis can include congestion, facial pain or pressure, headache, fever, and a reduced sense of smell or taste. It can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection, allergies, or structural abnormalities in the sinuses.


At my practice, I take a personalized approach to treating sinusitis. This means that I take the time to understand each patient’s unique symptoms and underlying causes, in order to develop an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to their needs.


In some cases, sinusitis can be treated with over-the-counter medications, such as nasal decongestants or saline nasal sprays. However, for patients with chronic sinusitis or severe symptoms, more advanced treatment options may be necessary.


One treatment option I often recommend for these patients is balloon sinuplasty. This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small balloon catheter to widen the openings of the sinuses, allowing for improved drainage and relief of symptoms. Balloon sinuplasty can often be performed in the office under local anesthesia, and patients typically experience minimal downtime and a quick recovery.


Another option for treating sinusitis is endoscopic sinus surgery. This is a more extensive procedure that involves the use of a thin, flexible scope to remove blockages or growths from the sinuses. This procedure is typically reserved for patients with severe or chronic sinusitis that has not responded to other treatments.


At my practice, I have helped many patients find relief from the symptoms of sinusitis through a range of treatment options. Whether you are dealing with acute sinusitis or chronic sinusitis, I am here to help you find the relief you need to live your life to the fullest.
