Childhood Chronic Sinusitis Management
Recurring Sinus Infections
Childhood chronic sinusitis is a recurring sinus infection that does not improve completely with antibiotics. These children have increased incidence of developing antibiotic allergy, school absenteeism, and chronic symptoms such as headache, fatigue and nasal congestion.
Data shows that CT scan imaging is not an appropriate or safe method of diagnosis in children because of the radiation exposure with the test. The diagnosis and management of childhood sinusitis require a more comprehensive evaluation than just simply imaging. Surgical treatment options in children with chronic sinusitis also go beyond nasal endoscopy and adenoidectomy.
Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive alternative.
Dr. Jason Sigmon has performed numerous Balloon Sinuplasty procedures in children. He has lectured and trained other surgeons in the region on the technique. For more information on Balloon Sinuplasty, contact us for an appointment.
