Metro Health offers a number of options to treat sinusitis, a swelling of the sinus cavities that can cause significant discomfort and lead to other problems, such as post-nasal drainage, facial pain and headaches, difficulty breathing and sleeping, or a reduced sense of tastes and smell.
We have experts in diagnosing and treating sinusitis through a variety of means, including a minimally invasive technique called sinus balloon dilation, as well as computer-guided sinus surgery.
Medical treatments include:
- Oral antibiotics
- Nasal sprays
- Oral steroids
- Allergy medication/decongestants
- Saline nasal rinses
- Endoscopic sinus surgery, which involves removing bone and tissue to enlarge the sinus openings.
- Advanced sinus balloon dilation, which preserves the natural structure of the sinus while providing relief. It is a quick and effective outpatient procedure that requires minimal recovery time.
