At ENT and Allergy Associates, ear, nose, and throat surgical specialists who dedicate a portion of their practice to diagnosing and endoscopically treating nasal and sinus disorders are members of the Advanced Sinus/Skull Base Center. Within that team, we further recognize a small subset of physicians who have additional expertise either through fellowship training or because a majority of their practice is spent performing advanced nasal, sinus, and skull base surgery. Or, on an oncologic basis, treating sinus and skull base cancers. We work closely with experienced specialists in allergy and immunology to resolve the most complex nasal and sinus conditions.
Problems with the nose and sinuses can dramatically affect a patient's quality of life. Staffed by fellowship-trained ear, nose, and throat doctors and other specialists in allergy and immunology, the Advanced Sinus and Skull Base Center provides a comprehensive approach to managing nasal and sinus disorders. Our physicians provide the highest level of care to patients with complex sinonasal disorders. The physician(s) emphasize comprehensive strategies that combine both medical treatments and sinus and nasal surgery.
Specialized treatment is provided for patients suffering from nasal and sinus diseases and complications, including:
- Acute and chronic sinusitis and its complications
- Nasal polyps and allergy
- Neoplastic disease
- Reconstructive problems
- Septal deformities and other problems leading to nasal airway obstruction
- Sinus surgery after prior unsuccessful therapy
What are the Symptoms of Sinusitis?
Sinusitis can have varying symptoms and it is valuable to recognize them all. These may include:
- Pain over sinuses
- Purulent drip
- Nasal congestion
- Discolored mucous
- Inability to smell
- Low-grade fever
- Phlegm in the throat
- Fatigue for greater than three months
The good news is that most sinus infections go away by themselves. However, due to the discomfort and ‘quality of life interference’ caused by this nose, sinus, and allergy condition, a lot of people require medical treatment. Simple remedies are saline sprays, washes, and irrigations. Decongestants like Sudafed help congestion. Antihistamines aid allergic symptoms of seasonal sniffling, postnasal drip, and itchy eyes, nose, and throat. When these fail, a visit to a physician is required to determine if antibiotics are needed to treat a bacterial sinus infection.
