Chronic Sinus Disease

Chronic swelling of the mucosal lining our sinus cavities can also lead to the feeling of nasal congestion. Termed chronic sinusitis, relief from this source of congestion may not respond to medical therapy.

After appropriate and maximal medical therapy, a CT scan of the sinus can be performed to determine the health of the sinus mucosa. If evidence of chronic mucosal disease is present, surgical intervention may be warranted.

Endoscopic sinus surgery is an outpatient surgery performed through the nasal cavity without skin incisions, to improve sinus ventilation. This helps improve sinus mucosal health and relieve nasal congestion. The specific sinus procedures required are dependent upon each patient’s specific disease.
