What Is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses, which are the hollow spaces in the bones around the nose. It can be caused by a viral infection, such as a cold or the flu, or by bacteria. Allergies and environmental irritants, such as smoke and pollution, can also lead to sinusitis. Symptoms include pain and pressure in the sinuses, a stuffy nose, a sore throat, and headache.  Our sinusitis treatment in Pembroke Pines aims to address these symptoms by handling their underlying cause.

What Treatments Are Available for Sinusitis?

Treatment depends on the cause of the inflammation. Viral sinusitis usually goes away on its own, while bacterial sinusitis requires antibiotics. Allergic sinusitis can be treated with antihistamines and decongestants. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to drain the sinuses or repair structural damage.

What To Expect if You Need Sinus Surgery?

Sinus surgery is a common procedure that is performed to improve the function of the sinuses and relieve symptoms caused by sinusitis. The sinuses are a series of air-filled cavities in the bones of the face, and they are connected to the nose through small openings. Sinus surgery is typically recommended for people who have chronic sinusitis, which is defined as inflammation of the sinuses that lasts for more than 12 weeks. 

People with chronic sinusitis often have difficulty breathing, and they may also experience fever, facial pain, and fatigue. Sinus surgery can improve these symptoms by widening the openings between the sinuses and the nose, making it easier for mucus to drain. Additionally, sinus surgery can help to remove any blockages or growths that may be causing an obstruction.
