We know how ENT conditions like sinusitis can affect your everyday life.

Our ENT services

We offer the following ENT treatments and services at our hospital: 

Sinus surgery

Sinusitis is typically treated first with medication. However, if you don't respond to medications, your doctor may suggest a surgical procedure as the next step to relief.

Our ear, nose and throat doctors offer several sinus surgery options, including:

  • Balloon-assisted surgery — uses a minimally invasive sinus balloon catheter to unblock the sinus passageway
  • Endoscopic sinus surgery — uses a thin fiber optic tube to remove abnormal and obstructive tissues
  • Image-guided surgery — uses a computerized tomography (CT) scan with endoscopic surgery for greater visual precision
What to expect with sinus surgery

Most sinus surgeries:

  • Are performed on an outpatient basis in one to two hours
  • Involve a local or general anesthetic
  • Have minimal swelling, especially with the endoscopic procedures

Pediatric ear, nose and throat care

As part of our hospital's commitment to providing comprehensive pediatric services, we offer advanced pediatric ear, nose and throat care to help your little one with their sinusitis condition. Our compassionate specialists use a multi-disciplinary approach, so you can feel confident that your child is in well-equipped hands.

Understanding sinusitis

Sinuses are air-filled cavities in the dense section of your skull bone. When these cavities become inflamed, you experience sinusitis.

Where sinusitis occurs

Sinusitis is typically found in four right-left pairs:

  • Behind the forehead and eyebrows
  • Behind the nose directly in front of the brain
  • On either side of the bridge of the nose
  • Within the bony structure of the cheeks

Causes of sinusitis

Sinusitis occurs when there is an inflammation of the sinuses. This is often the result of:

  • Allergies
  • Bacterial infections
  • Viruses and fungi (molds)

Symptoms of sinusitis

There are several types of sinusitis symptoms that can include but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Congestion or feeling of fullness in face
  • Fever
  • Headaches
  • Nasal obstruction blockage
  • Pus in the nasal cavity
  • Runny nose or discolored postnasal drainage
