Sinus Treatment in Long Island, NY
Your sinuses play an important role in your overall health, but these open spaces can also be troublesome. Sinus treatment by Eunice E. Park, MD, who is dual board-certified in facial plastic surgery and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology), may provide long-term improvements for residents of Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York.
What is Sinus Treatment?
If you have sinus problems that last for more than 10 days, you may have a medical condition known as “sinusitis.” The sinuses are spaces in between the bones of your skull. The channels connect to the nose through narrow openings. In healthy sinuses, these openings are not obstructed by inflammation and blockages. The air from the nose to the sinuses can move easily. Any condition that affects these narrow openings will impact your sinuses and breathing. Because the air we breathe contains viruses, bacteria, and other irritants, the sinuses are prone to developing problems. In most cases, these problems resolve on their own, but approximately one in eight people will develop sinusitis and need treatment.
Benefits of Sinus Treatment
The goal of sinus treatment is to reduce inflammation and correct any anatomical blockages. This restores the integrity of the channels through which air passes.
Am I a Candidate for Sinus Treatment?
You may be a candidate for sinus treatment if you experience:
- Pressure and/or pain in the area around your eyes and nose
- Stuffy nose
Dr. Park may diagnose your sinusitis by evaluating X-rays and other types of imaging.
Sinusitis typically describes episodes that last more than 10 days. If your symptoms last up to four weeks, you may have acute sinusitis.
What to Expect from Sinus Treatment
The type of sinus treatment recommended by Dr. Park is based upon the type of sinusitis. Bacterial sinusitis may be treated with antibiotics. If Dr. Park finds an anatomical abnormality is causing your sinusitis, the sinus treatment may involve surgery to address the problem.
