Sinusitis Treatment Options

Treatment for Sinusitis

As Los Angeles’ best sinus surgeon, Dr. Cohen successfully treats acute and chronic sinusitis using the most effective and sophisticated treatments available. Acute sinusitis is often resolved through a course of antibiotics, nasal sprays, and other medications. For patients in Southern California suffering from chronic sinusitis, Dr. Cohen may suggest minimally invasive treatment options to alleviate the pain caused by ongoing sinus infections.

Medications as Treatment

For many Southern California residents, a sinus infection may be treated by an ENT through a course of medication which may include antibiotics, nasal steroids and decongestants.

In-Office Balloon Sinuplasty

Dr. Cohen, founder of the Southern California Sinus Institute may suggest in-office balloon sinuplasty for patients suffering from chronic or recurring sinusitis. This minimally invasive technique involves placing tiny balloons throughout the nose and sinuses. The balloons are then inflated to help expand the sinus pathway. By enlarging the sinus pathway, the likelihood of recurring infection is diminished. In-office balloon sinuplasty does not require general anesthesia, and there is virtually no recovery time following the procedure.

Los Angeles area patients who are particularly good candidates for having Dr. Cohen perform in-house balloon sinuplasty are those whose sinus pain and infections do not resolve properly with medication. The majority of patients report that the relief from pain and pressure is immediate, and the procedure causes minimal disruption to their daily lives.

Outpatient Minimally Invasive Image-Guided Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (MIGSS)

Another minimally invasive technique that may be used to alleviate the pain, pressure and disruption to your life brought about by chronic or recurring sinus infections is in-office sinus and nasal endoscopy.

As Los Angeles’ best sinus surgeon, Dr. Alen Cohen has performed countless in-office sinus and nasal endoscopy procedures. Candidates for endoscopic sinus and nasal surgery in Southern California are those who suffer from chronic and recurrent sinus infections (sinusitis). When medication fails to alleviate the recurrence and pain associated with chronic sinusitis, endoscopic surgery to clear the sinuses may be recommended. Dr. Cohen will discuss all possible treatments for sinusitis, before recommending this type of sinus surgery. The end goal of the surgery is to improve your quality of life, and reduce future infections, pain, and subsequent doctor visits.
