Sinusitis is an infection/inflammation on the lining of the sinus cavity. Normally the sinuses are empty and filled with air, however they get filled with fluid and germs, causing infection. Our medical providers take time to assess the severity of your symptoms and provide effective treatment solutions that suit your unique requirements.
Sinusitis can be acute, lasting for less than four weeks, or chronic, lasting longer than 12 weeks. When sinus symptoms last longer than 12 weeks, you should see one of our ENT doctors for a diagnosis.
Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Surgery is done when the symptoms can’t be controlled with medications and other treatments. The most common type of surgery for the sinuses is called Endoscopic Sinus Surgery. The purpose of the surgery is to widen the natural drainage pathways between the sinuses and the nose, allowing mucus to get out of the sinuses and air to get in. Medications that are delivered to the surface of the nose and sinuses, like sprays and irrigations, can get into the sinuses better after surgery as well.
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive in office procedure, performed under local anesthesia, that delivers immediate and long-lasting relief. Your doctor will reshape your sinus pathways by inflating small balloons in key places in the nose and sinuses, restoring drainage.
