Sinus disease can cause significant problems in one’s life—chronic headaches with facial pain and pressure, inability to breathe well, poor sleep, poor smell and taste, and fatigue. There are two types of sinusitis: acute sinusitis and chronic sinusitis. Acute sinusitis is inflammation of the cavities around the nasal passages caused by infections such as a cold, bad viral upper respiratory infection or bacteria. Chronic sinusitis is when the inflammation continues for more than three months.
We are able to assess your sinuses in the office with our state-of-the-art endoscopic equipment and our office-based CT scan machine, which exposes you to a fraction of the radiation that traditional CT scanners emit and takes only 20 seconds to perform while you are sitting up (no enclosed spaces).
