Many patients suffering from sinus problems, including headaches and drainage, understand the daily frustrations associated with this common condition. Sinus problems can be made worse by allergies, and although they are technically separate diagnoses, their treatments may be interrelated.
Sinus are bony cavities which lie between and below your eyes. They have small openings which connect them to the inside of the nose. Usually air can easily pass from the nose into the sinuses. Occasionally, the nasal membranes swell up because of a cold, allergies, or turbulent airflow. The tiny holes which drain the sinuses into the nose are then closed by the swollen membranes. When this happens, the sinuses become filled with fluid, which can then become infected.
At our hospital, we offer patients several options to help reduce sinus episodes, reduce ear fluid, and breath easier. After the surgery, many patients find breathing is much easier.
Our services include Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, Septoplasty, and Balloon Sinuplasty.
Allergy is a condition caused by an inappropriate immune response to a substance either inhaled or eaten that would normally be considered harmless to individuals. As a result of that reaction, inflammatory chemicals are released into the bloodstream that can cause the unwanted symptoms of allergy. Common symptoms of allergy may include: nasal congestion, runny nose, itching, sneezing, ear fullness, skin rash, asthma, and sometimes fluid behind the eardrums. Allergy is also felt to be a contributing factor in some patients with Meniere’s disease
The treatment of allergy can vary from environmental avoidance, to appropriate medications such as antihistamines, prescription nasal spray, and decongestants for those patients who have mild/moderate or very seasonal symptoms. For those symptoms that are more moderate to severe, present throughout a significant part of the year, or do not respond well to avoidance or medical therapy, testing for allergies may provide other effective forms of treatment, such as allergy immunotherapy (shots) and/or an elimination diet for diagnosed food allergies.
Balloon sinuplasty is a new technological innovation in the surgical treatment for sinusitis.. Dr Uppal’s ENT Hospital successfully brought this cutting- edge technology to Thane in 2011 when the first surgery of this kind in Thane was performed by Dr Uppal. Since then, many such surgeries have been performed at the hospital.
Sinusitis is one of the most common health problems in our society. Symptoms may significantly affect people physically, functionally and emotionally. Common symptoms include facial pain, pressure, congestion or fullness, nasal obstruction or blockage, discolored post-nasal drainage, loss of smell, bad breath, headache and fatigue. The secretions from the paranasal sinuses drain via small openings called ostia into the nasal cavity. In sinusitis, these secretions get blocked within the sinuses.
The main advantage of The balloon sinuplasty over the conventional endoscopic sinus surgery is the preservation of the normal anatomy of the most vital area of the nose called the osteo-meatal complex. This sophisticated surgical technique enables complete clearance of disease within the blocked sinuses with no blood loss and painless post operative period. Most of our patients were able to resume their normal routines within 24 hours. Hence, this system has proved to be an efficient tool in the armamentarium of the endoscopic sinus surgeons. The procedure can be effectively performed only in certain type of sinus problems and is not indicated in cases of extensive sinonasal polyps, growths and malignancies.
At Dr Uppal’s ENT Hospital, we understand the disruptive nature of snoring, both to the patient and to family, and work closely with individuals to improve or eliminate this common ailment. We know snoring can range from being a slight nuisance to an extreme bother, truly causing personal and social problems.
What is snoring exactly?
Snoring usually comes from vibration of the soft tissues in the throat. It can be made worse by nasal obstruction from allergies or a crooked wall inside the nose (medically called a deviated septum). Sometimes it is positional, meaning it is worse when a person lies on their back.
Often snoring can be greatly improved by some relatively simple measures including:
If you or someone in your family is seeking an answer to a snoring problem, we highly recommend scheduling a visit with us. A complete evaluation in the office usually reveals the location of the problem. Over the years, we have helped countless patients reduce snoring by tailoring therapy plans to the individual needs, resulting in a better quality of life.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea is another common condition that can lead to other health issues if left untreated. Often, patients know about this condition because family tell them they stop breathing while asleep. Or, during the pauses a patient may start to awaken himself. While between 2 to 4 percent of the population suffers from OSA, many cases go undiagnosed because patients fail to recognize the symptoms. Being overweight can be a contributing factor.
Sleep apnea happens when patients stop breathing momentarily during sleep because of a collapse of the soft tissues in the throat. If these pauses occur frequently and last long enough (usually 10 seconds at a time) then a patient may have a condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. The effects are real including increased sleepiness due to disrupted sleep patterns, difficulty concentrating, morning headaches, feeling fatigued and even high blood pressure.
Sleep apnea can be diagnosed with a sleep study and if the patient does have sleep apnea then there are many methods of treatment including:
For years, Dr.Uppal has been successfully treating patients who struggle with obstructive sleep apnea and snoring, helping restore sleep and overall health.
