Sinusitus treatments

If sinusitis (inflammation of a nasal sinus) is the cause, initial treatment may include antibiotics, steroids and irrigation. In severe cases, surgery may be recommended for heavily blocked sinuses.
 


Balloon Sinuplasty

This minimally invasive, outpatient procedure uses a catheter to insert and inflate a tiny balloon, opening blocked paths so sinuses can drain properly.
 


Septoplasty/Turbinectomy

This nasal surgery is most often used to straighten a deviated septum, which causes nasal passages to become crooked and restrict breathing. It can dramatically improve breathing, and usually takes just an hour to perform.
