Sinus Treatments

Thanks to the pioneering work of Dr. Setliff, more treatments are available today for sinus sufferers than ever before.

Medical Therapy

Medical therapy is always the first treatment for a sinus condition. Depending on the causes and the symptoms, a variety of things may be tried:

  • Nasal irrigations
  • Allergy treatments
  • Antibiotics
  • Nasal medications

People who suffer from repeat sinus problems may find relief while continuing to take medications, but the problems return when the antibiotics are discontinued. In such instances, surgery is considered.

Surgery at the Setliff Sinus Institute is different. We use minimally invasive procedures that focus on treating the cause of the disease rather than on enlarging sinus openings.  Our experience is that, although a patient may have a "big" sinus problem, "big", or highly invasive, surgery is not required for improvement.

For the patient, our techniques mean faster recovery and a higher level of success. In fact, follow-up studies of our patients indicate that more than 90% show significant improvement. Of perhaps even more importance, patients who have not benefited from surgery elsewhere have found lasting results at the Setliff Sinus Institute.
