Sinusitis afflicts many tens of millions of Americans each year, but it still remains poorly understood. One of the principal reasons for this is because sinusitis can flow from a number of root causes – infection, injury, poor anatomy, allergies, even pollution.

WebMD has a thorough treatment of sinusitis available—one which clearly explains and debunks some of the greatest mysteries surrounding this disorder. One section addresses the question of sinus surgery in particular as a remedy, noting:

If antibiotics and other medicines are not effective in opening the sinus, surgery may be necessary. Also, if there is a structural abnormality of the sinus such as nasal polyps, which can obstruct sinus drainage, surgery may be needed.

The page goes on to reference everything from nasal polyp surgery to turbinate surgery to balloon sinuplasty as viable options for sufferers of sinusitis.

My Los Angeles sinus surgery practice specializes in precisely these approaches. If you have grown tired of the searing pain and pressure of sinusitis, I urge you to reach to a Los Angeles sinus surgeon for relief today.
