Specializing in the medical and surgical management of conditions that affect your nose and sinuses.
Sinusitis is very common. In 2009 there were 29.3 million adults diagnosed with sinusitis in the United States. In 2007 there were 12.5 million visits to health practitioners for chronic sinusitis alone. Sinus problems affect nearly one in two people that live in the Wiregrass area.
Sinus infection, or sinusitis, is an inflammation of the sinuses and nasal passages. A sinus infection can cause a headache or pressure in the eyes, nose, cheek area, or on one side of the head. A person with a sinus infection may also have a cough, sore throat, fever, bad breath, and nasal congestion with thick nasal secretions. Sinusitis is categorized as acute (sudden onset) or chronic(long term, the most common type).
Our professionals perform nasal endoscopy and obtain sinus cultures in the office, thereby taking the guess work out of choosing the best antibiotic for your particular case. An in-office CT scanner is located at each office for your convenience.
Should surgical intervention be necessary, we utilize the most modern computer navigation systems available anywhere.
