Chronic Sinusitis

Can't Get Rid of Your Sinus Pressure & Headache?

Here's Why...

Inflammation of the sinus cavities (those hollow spaces in your skull around and behind your eyes and nose) is referred to as sinusitis.  The inflammation makes the mucous membranes lining your nasal passages and sinuses swell, which interferes with airflow into and drainage out of the sinuses.

Without normal function, your sinuses become stagnant, ultimately leading to growth of bacteria and viruses in the cavities, more inflammation, and the buildup of pressure and pain.  You may also experience symptoms of post nasal drip, coughing, nasal congestion, bad breath, loss of sense of smell, and sometimes ear pressure.1

Sinusitis is sometimes triggered by a cold or sinus infection, but it also can be triggered by things like allergens, chemicals in the air, pollutants, cigarette smoke, or even the over use of nasal sprays. 2

For most people, sinusitis will run its course in a few weeks after treatment with home remedies and over the counter medications.  Sometimes it may require a visit to the doctor for prescribed antibiotics or medications.

Amazing! Personal!

"Can't thank them enough for helping me out.  I was joining the military, and the MEPS doc told me I had to go to a specialist or I can't pass my medical.  Everyone said I had to wait 3-4 weeks, but you guys got me in the same day!  It was extremely important because my job could be taken.  So I am in their debt.  THANK YOU!"

I was glad the receptionist recommended (Clay Ansley) for this appointment

"I didn't know CRNP existed in this practice. I would've had to wait a month to see a doctor. and it would have been unnecessary since this was the correct person to see of my issue."

"You have a true gift of being a kind physician.”

"Dr Wudel - I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you for the services you have provided the past few months. Your ability to balance people skills and surgical skills makes a huge difference in the healing process."

Please note:  because every patient is unique, your results may vary.

""Everyone we had any connection with at the ENT Clinic was very professional - but in a cordial, not a stiff way.”

My partner and I always joke about things, and the doctor and nurses appreciated our humor.  I couldn't have asked for a better result from the surgery, and I would recommend Dr. Wudel to anyone.”

Sinus Pain has become a part of everyday life for millions of Americans

Has Sinus Pain Become a Part of Your Everyday Life?

If you find your sinusitis symptoms linger past 8-12 weeks, or keep coming back after multiple trips to the doctor and treatments that don’t last, you may be trapped in a frustrating cycle of sinusitis.

Your symptoms are really getting frustrating – you feel bad all the time, treatment is getting expensive, and you’re missing out on work and family events. You really don’t want to face traditional sinus surgery, so what now?

Now there is an alternative to give you relief from sinusitis!

Balloon Sinus Dilation (balloon sinuplasty) may be the right solution for you.  It’s a brief procedure to open the sinus pathways and restore drainage, done under local anesthesia in the office of The Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic & Hearing Center of MN.  Balloon Sinus Dilation is a proven, minimally invasive treatment with quick recovery time.  It not only addresses sinusitis symptoms, but changes the actual anatomy that can contribute to chronic and recurrent sinusitis.1

Everyone with sinus misery is not a candidate for Sinus Balloon Dilation, but the first step to find out what solution is right for you is to be evaluated by one of our ENT specialists.
