Get Care for Your Sinus Disorder
Dr. Richard Callari & his team at Broward Sinus & Allergy Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida are dedicated to providing the best possible care for patients suffering from nasal & sinus disorders. Adults can be affected by nasal congestion, sinus pain & pressure, chronic sinusitis, sinus-related migraines & more.
Sinus infections affect everyone differently, but the classic symptoms are pain & pressure in the sinuses & face & a colored mucus discharge. Many people feel like they have a really bad cold, but if you have teeth pain, fatigue & the colored discharge, chances are it’s a sinus infection.
Nasal Polyps affect up to 12 million people in the US. Nasal polyps are relatively common growths in the lining of the nose. They are benign growths originating from the sinus cavities. They can lead to chronic sinus infection & nasal obstruction, congestion & discomfort. They can block nasal passages, preventing normal sinus drainage & leading to difficulties breathing, smelling & sleeping. Their exact cause is unknown, but they result from inﬂammation & are often associated with infection, asthma, allergies, aspirin sensitivity & immune disorders. We provide management of nasal polyps with a variety of options from simple nasal sprays, steroid injections, and in-office removal of polyps.
In many cases, nasal congestion & sinus infections are caused by allergies. Other times they are the result of a structural problem or blockage. If necessary, Dr.Callari will order a MiniCAT™ CT scan to identify any structural issues in your nasal passageway before recommending a treatment plan.
Dr. Callari now offers an innovative, non-surgical option that is clinically proven to reduce nasal obstruction and congestion: the SINUVA™ (mometasone furoate) Sinus Implant. If you have previously undergone sinus surgery and are experiencing a return of nasal polyps, you may be a candidate for SINUVA™. SINUVA™ can be placed during a routine visit under local anesthesia. The sinus implant has a 2-in-1 benefit: it is designed to open in the sinus cavity and deliver anti-inflammatory medicine directly to nasal polyps. Once SINUVA™ is in place, patients usually do not feel the implant. It is removed at 90 days or earlier upon Dr. Callari’s discretion.
This FDA-approved technology has been shown to reduce polyp burden – without the need for sinus surgery – which may lead to improved nasal congestion and sense of smell. Call us today to find out if SINUVA™ may be right for you!
When you come to Broward Sinus & Allergy Center, Dr. Callari will find the cause of your symptoms & determine the best treatment for your condition. He may prescribe medication or recommend a non-surgical or minimally invasive surgical treatment to restore normal sinus function so you get the relief you’ve been seeking.
