What is an Audiologist?

The profession of Audiology is dedicated to the diagnosis and rehabilitation of hearing loss.

Why is it important to seek the care of an Audiologist for a hearing problem?

The management of hearing loss has ramifications on a person’s self-image, family relationships, work performance, academic achievement, and employment security. From providing a quality hearing test to selecting the best sound processing in hearing aids; from choosing the optimum telephone amplifier or cell phone to educating the family methods to optimize communication, the Audiologist is the professional of choice.

Sinusitis Symptoms

Sinusitis – also known as rhinosinusitis – is an inflammation of the tissue lining of the sinuses that afflicts millions of people each year.

Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, pathogens (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection. Structural issues such as narrowed drainage anatomy are often associated with sinusitis.

Affected Sinuses

There are four types of sinuses – maxillary (behind the cheek bones), ethmoid (between the eyes), frontal (in the forehead) and sphenoid (behind the eyes). All of these sinuses can be affected by sinusitis. The majority of cases involve the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses

Common Symptoms

Facial congestion/fullness – Nasal obstruction/blockage – Nasal discharge – Fever – Headaches – Fatigue – Dental Pain – Bad breath

Become a Sinusitis Success Story: Restore drainage and find instant sinus relief

Balloon sinus dilation is a new, minimally invasive office procedure that reopens the sinus pathways and restores drainage to deliver immediate and long-lasting relief to recurrent and chronic sinusitis sufferers. In balloon sinus dilation, the ear, nose, and throat specialist seeks to reshape anatomy by inflating small balloons in key places in the nose and sinus to expand sinus pathways and restore drainage.
