We Treat Sinusitis at Oasis ENT
Sinusitis is a common condition that afflicts over 35 million Americans every year.
The sinuses are air-filled spaces behind the forehead, cheeks, and eyes. In healthy sinuses, mucus drains out and air is able to circulate. Sinusitis describes a swelling (inflammation) of the sinuses that can lead to blockages and prevent mucous from draining properly. This can lead to infection.
