What about sinusitis

Affecting approximately 37 million Americans, sinusitis is one of the most common complaints among ENT patients. Sinusitis happens when the lining of your sinuses becomes inflamed. Your sinuses routinely drain through the small openings in the nose, but when there is a blockage, a buildup of mucus occurs, causing potentially infectious inflammation. There are two types of sinusitis – acute and chronic.

  • Acute sinusitis – happens suddenly and can be cured quickly and medication
  • Chronic sinusitis – occurs frequently or lasts more than three months

Acute sinusitis (lasting less than four weeks) is most commonly caused by viral or bacterial infections, and even allergens or environmental irritants. Viruses usually cause the majority of acute sinus infections in the general population and can be associated with an upper respiratory infection. In cases of chronic sinusitis (lasting 12 weeks or more), the causes are more complex and can commonly be an interaction of recurrent acute sinusitis, asthma, allergic rhinitis, immune disorders or structural abnormalities like a deviated septum or nasal polyps.

Our ENT specialists provide treatment for the following ear, nose and throat conditions.
