nasal & sinus disorders


Do you find yourself sniffling and sneezing year-round? Is snoring keeping you up at night? These can be signs of a serious nasal or sinus condition. 

Nasal and sinus disorders affect the nose and sinuses, which are hollow spaces inside the skull, above and on either side of the nose. These disorders include:
  • Allergies and hay fever
  • Deviated septum
  • Epistaxis (nosebleeds)
  • Nasal obstruction
  • Rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal membranes) 
  • Rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses)
  • Septal perforations (holes in the septum) 
  • Sinonasal tumors
  • Sinusitis

treatment options

At Aurora, our team of ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists are trained to help a wide variety of nasal and sinus issues, from allergies to conditions requiring surgery. Our doctors use innovative treatments, including these two minimally invasive procedures: 

  • Image-guided endoscopic sinus surgery. In this procedure, a scope is inserted into your nose and your surgeon can remove polyps or diseased tissue using micro instruments.
  • Balloon sinuplasty, where a small, balloon catheter is inserted to open up your sinus passageways and help drain mucus.
