Pain or pressure builds up around the eyes or in the face, sometimes accompanied by headaches and toothaches. Indeed, chronic sinusitis can have a significant detrimental impact on patients’ quality of life, and their ability to enjoy day to day activities. Research shows that patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis have lower quality of life scores than patients with congestive heart failure, angina, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or back pain.

Nasal PolypsWhat are Nasal Polyps?

Posted January 15th, 2020

Nasal polyps are benign masses in the nose formed by an exaggerated inflammatory response in the mucosal tissues lining the nose and sinuses in patients with chronic sinus inflammation, also known as chronic rhinosinusitis. This inflammation can be caused by repetitive exposure to infection or allergens. An estimated 20-30% of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis develop nasal polyps.

Dr. Bublik is a triple board-certified physician specializing in treatment of diseases of the ears, nose, and throat, as well as allergies. These unique qualifications contribute to his expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps.

AllergiesWill Sinus Surgery or Balloon Sinuplasty Fix My Allergies?

Posted January 9th, 2020

Many patients do experience an improvement in their allergies after sinus surgery or balloon sinuplasty. This improvement, while pleasant, is not necessarily indicative of allergies being cured.

Allergies are the body’s inflammatory response to exposure to specific triggers found in the environment or in certain foods; this response is not addressed with sinus surgery or balloon sinuplasty.

You still may have allergies after sinus surgery, however, most people find improvement in their allergy symptoms after sinus surgery.
