Blocked sinuses can be extremely painful and downright depressing. The constant dull pain that accumulates behind the eyes and in the center of the forehead can be utterly demoralizing and debilitating. This post looks at when it’s time to consult a specialist sinus doctor.
Otorhinolaryngologists use Balloon Sinuplasty to place small balloons in the sinuses to remove blockages in a similar fashion to angioplasty is used to remove blockages in blood vessels. By placing these balloons in the sinus cavities, sinus drainage which would otherwise be impossible is allowed.
Sinus treatment is easily accessible to the patient after consulting the otolaryngologist (ENT specialist). If surgery is recommended, there is no need for fear as the recovery time after the surgery is fast and the patients go about their normal activities a few hours to days after the surgery.
