Sinus Infection (Sinusitis)

Have you ever had a cold or allergy attack that wouldn’t go away? If so, there’s a good chance you actually had sinusitis. Experts estimate that 37 million people are afflicted with sinusitis each year, making it one of the most common health conditions in America. That number may be significantly higher, since the symptoms of bacterial sinusitis often mimic those of colds or allergies, and many sufferers never see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

More than 37 million people suffer from at least one episode of sinusitis each year. The overall prevalence of sinusitis has soared and includes patients with acute sinusitis, recurrent acute sinusitis and chronic sinusitis (more than 12 weeks).

Sinusitis can be painful and disruptive to your health. The Sinus and Snoring Center is “a specialty clinic without walls,” featuring twenty board-certified Otolaryngologists with exceptional experience in treating common and the most complex nasal and sinus conditions in both adult and pediatric patients.

  • Sinus pressure and congestion
  • Sinus Headache
  • Facial pain
  • Tenderness and swelling around the eyes, cheeks, nose and forehead
  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Loss of the sense of smell or taste
  • Yellow or green mucus from the nose
