Disorders of the Nose
Runny nose, loss of smell, eye pressure, and sinus infections. Allergies and breathing problems related to asthma can follow chronic sinusitis. Sometimes, it can be difficult to know if the symptoms are allergies, upper respiratory infections, or sinusitis.
Each disease has different signs and symptoms, and each disease requires special care. The Oregon Science Center team can help you make informed decisions about how best to treat a nose patient with these conditions. After the correct diagnosis, it is possible to start any type of treatment.
These medications can include anti-inflammatory nasal sprays, decongestants, oral anti-inflammatory medications, and steroids. It is important for doctors and patients to understand the need for long-term care. In some cases, surgery with a telescope (endoscope) inserted into the nose is necessary.

However, in some cases, sinusitis can come back. The solution to these problems depends on the scope and intensity of the conflict. Our team strives to listen to each patient
Our doctors listen to patients with sinus infections that have failed routine and require advanced surgical skills. The Oregon Sinus Center researches the best treatments for sinus infections.
