Chronic sinusitis, also known as chronic rhinosinusitis, affects roughly 40 million Americans every year. By definition, the air cell cavities around the nasal passages become inflamed and swollen for at least 12 weeks despite medical therapy.
Normally the sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked, pathogens including bacteria, viruses, and fungi can grow and cause infection. Structural issues such as narrowed drainage anatomy are often associated with sinusitis.
Sufferers may experience nasal congestion, discharge, pain around the eyes, forehead, and cheeks, fatigue, fever, dental pain and headaches. Potential triggers may include the common cold, viral respiratory illnesses, allergies, environmental irritants, and nasal polyps.
Doctors Kanhaiyalal, Sanjay, & Manoj Kantu will individualize your treatment and possibly recommend a CT scan of the sinuses. A Sinus questionnaire will also be provided before your visit with our Physician.
