Sinusitis involves inflammation in the sinus cavities. Patients with sinusitis can have frequent sinus infections, loss of sense of smell, and headaches. Some patients may have chronic sinusitis and they may feel like they always have a sinus infection that never gets better, no matter how many antibiotics they have tried.
We help patients by performing allergy testing, advising environmental changes, medications and sometimes allergy shots, as appropriate.
Our goal is to control sinus problems medically so that patients will not require surgery. If patients have already had sinus surgery, we can help keep their sinusitis under control so that they are less likely to need more surgery. Do not hesitate to seek a second opinion from us if you have been advised to undergo sinus surgery. Dr. Dave Gupta has a special interest in chronic sinusitis.
