Nasal turbinates are like thermostats on the wall of your nasal cavity. These bony structures clean and warm the air you breathe, expanding and contracting with changes in temperature. Allergies or sinus infections can cause nasal turbinates to become inflamed and swollen to the point that they block airflow through the nasal passage. Unfortunately, enlarged nasal turbinates can create a vicious cycle of symptoms. Sinusitis causes them to swell, and swelling leads to more infections. Difficulty breathing can alternate from one side to the other and facial pressure can lead to headaches.
Mild cases can be treated with medication. If swelling does not respond to medication, minor surgical procedures may be recommended to shrink the turbinates.
Advanced medical technology allows us to diagnose and treat sinus issues with remarkable accuracy and greater safety.
Many surgical procedures permit patients to return to normal activity in a few days.
Our sinus doctors are attentive, empathetic, and sensitive to your needs.
