Chronic sinusitis (sinus infections)
Sinusitis affects approximately 37 million Americans, so here are some facts to help you understand it better. Sinusitis happens when the lining of your sinuses becomes inflamed.
There are two types of sinusitis – acute and chronic.
- Acute sinusitis – happens suddenly and can be cured quickly and medication
- Chronic sinusitis – occurs frequently or lasts more than three months
Viruses usually cause the majority of acute sinus infections in the general population and can be associated with an upper respiratory infection. In cases of chronic sinusitis (lasting 12 weeks or more), the causes are more complex and can commonly be an interaction of recurrent acute sinusitis, asthma, allergic rhinitis, immune disorders or structural abnormalities like a deviated septum or nasal polyps.
Surgeries we offer
Some of the head and sinus surgeries we commonly perform include:
- Rhino (nose and sinus) neurosurgery
- Revision surgery
- Skull base surgery
Dr. Farag takes on special and difficult cases and can offer minimally invasive neurosurgery to remove brain tumors. This innovative approach uses very small, flexible tubes and tools. This enables us to access the tumor while minimizing contact with other areas around the tumor. It also offers you many other benefits, including minimal scarring and reduced time in the hospital.
