Whether you’re suffering from an acute sinus infection or chronic sinusitis, our certified head and neck doctors can help you find relief.
At-Home Sinusitis Treatments
Most sinus infections are viral in nature and simply need to run their course. But that doesn’t mean you need to suffer through your sinusitis unaided. Call us for medication recommendations specific to your situation or to schedule an in-office evaluation. In the meantime, be sure to drink water to keep your throat and sinuses lubricated.
Antibiotic Sinusitis Treatments
If several days have passed and you’re still not improving, you may have a bacterial sinus infection. Call us to make an appointment with one of our ear, nose, and throat doctors. They’ll run you through a thorough exam and, if necessary, prescribe an antibiotic to treat your sinus infection.
If you have a history of frequent sinus infections, you may be a candidate for sinusitis surgery. Ear Nose & Throat Medical and Surgical Group offers several types of sinus surgery.
Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
This sinus surgery standard threads an endoscope (tiny camera) into the sinuses to observe and remove impediments to airflow. Nasal polyps and other blockages are often removed using this procedure.
This procedure surgically removes the adenoid—a tonsil-like tissue situated in the back of your nasal passage—to improve chronic sinusitis, earaches, and impaired breathing. Patients can expect to undergo general anesthesia before this sinusitis surgery, but recovery is quick.
