Learn about the Sinus Conditions We Treat

Allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS)

AFS (allergic fungal sinusitis) is a reaction that is understood to be caused by fungi present in the environment. In most cases, a combination of medical therapy and surgery is necessary to treat the problem.

Inverting papilloma

This type of tumor, which grows downward into underlying tissue, may occur in the nose or sinuses, causing symptoms similar to those caused by sinusitis. The treatment for this generally includes surgery. In most cases, surgical removal of theses tumors is achieved through the nostrils with a small scope.

Nasal polyposis

Nasal polyps are noncancerous growths of soft tissue that develop in the nose and sinuses. The cause of nasal polyps is unknown, but they are associated with chronic inflammation. Sometimes, this condition is associated with other inflammatory disorders, such as asthma.

Recurrent sinusitis despite previous surgery

Our fellowship-trained surgeons are experts in revision endoscopic sinus surgery for patients who have symptoms even after previous medical or surgical therapy. We use minimally invasive techniques when possible to improve symptoms related to sinus disease.
