Sleep-related disorders are the rising concern in todays time. Sleep disordered-breathing, obstructive sleep disorders and obstructive sleep apnoea are reported more often these days due to changing lifestyle and food habits. Here at Kokilaben hospital, we provide comprehensive services in order to diagnose and treat obstructive sleep disorders.
In current scenario sinus-related issues are more prevalent due to change in environmental conditions and increasing awareness among general population.
Sinuses are hollow spaces in skull which drain into nasal cavity. Recurrent infections and allergy results into blockage of the drainage pathway leading to sinusitis.
Common symptoms are facial pain, pressure, head ache, breathing difficulty, loss of sense of smell.
At Kokilaben hospital, we offer complete care of sinus related issues from diagnosis to the management. Some recent advances are practised at our specialised Sinus Clinic for the management of sinusitis, like:
Sinusitis can be treated with medical management like antibiotics and steroids or surgical management.
Traditional sinus surgery removes bone and tissue to enlarge the sinus opening with the aim of clearing the drainage pathway. This sort of surgery is often associated with post-operative pain and scarring.
Balloon sinuplasty is a breakthrough, minimally-invasive procedure that ENT doctor uses to treat chronic sinusitis. A tiny balloon is placed into the nose to reach the blocked sinuses and then inflated to widen the sinus opening. The procedure is safe, effective and recovery is quick.
Balloon sinuplasty is safe, proven and fast method to treat sinusitis effectively. Preliminary results from recent studies indicate that opening a sinus using balloon sinuplasty in children has an excellent safety profile and may be an effective treatment option for blocked maxillary sinus.
