Chronic Sinusitis with or without nasal polyps can cause facial pressure, headaches, nasal obstruction and drainage. Sinusitis is caused by long term inflammation of the nose and sinuses which may be due to infection, allergies, asthma, aspirin sensitivity, or diseases like cystic fibrosis. No one is sure why some people get polyps and some do not. Signs you might have sinusitis:
At Face Forward Houston Sinus Surgery will be performed in Dr. Regina Rodman‘s surgery center located in Houston, TX. To diagnose sinus disease, the Dr Rodman will look in your nose with a small camera, and may CT scan to look at the areas of the sinus she can’t see with the camera. Sometimes medication like steroid nasal spray, oral steroid pills, and antihistamines are enough to make the symptoms get better. In some people the medicine is not enough and they need Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery or FESS or balloon sinuplasty to clear out the disease and open the nose. In cases of advanced disease, Dr Rodman will use computer aided surgery to help make the surgery as safe as possible. Sinus disease and polyps can be a long term problem. Even after a successful surgery, Houston Sinus Surgery patients may still need to use nasal sprays and medications to make sure the polyps do not come back. Dr. Rodman follows her sinus patients long term to ensure that they keep sinus symptoms controlled.
