In brief: Surgery

Most studies have confirmed that endoscopic sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty provide to best long-term quality of life improvement in patients with chronic sinusitis.
However we only consider surgery if a patient had failed all medical management options. For more info visit www.Socalsinus.Com.

In brief: Sinusitis

Greetings. The treatment of choice in my practice for chronic sinusitis would be an antibiotic, possibly a steroid medication, a nasal spray and a follow up visit after the medication has been completed.
Further evaluation such as a nasal endoscopy or ct scan may be helpful to check for recovery.

In brief: See an ENT doctor

Chronic sinusitis usually suggests that the normal clearance mechanisms for the sinuses have been damaged.
When this happens organisms other than the ones generally responsible for acute disease may take over, and there may also be a need for surgery. An ENT doctor will be able to evaluate this and suggest the best approach to management. Good luck, .
