The Sinus Center of Atlanta is excited to announce they have recently launched their new website, AtlantaSinus.com The site offers everything you need to know to decide if you need sinus or allergy treatment.
The physicians of the Sinus Center of Atlanta are experts specially trained and certified in treating a wide range of sinus and allergy conditions. Most sinus physicians have to rely solely on traditional sinus surgery in the operating room. Patients of the Sinus Center of Atlanta often receive resolution of sinus infections with in-office balloon sinuplasty. The Sinus Center of Atlanta is North Georgia’s leader for balloon sinuplasty and allergy management.
One of the highlights of the new site is the testimonial from stay-at-home mom, Stefanie Cardenas, who was featured in an article in Health for Life magazine. For 18 months, Stefanie was plagued with chronic coughing, sinus problems, and headaches. She explains that most of the advice she received from doctors centered around using pain medication or other quick fixes only designed to treat the symptoms, not the underlying causes, of her sinus congestion. Recalling her horrible symptoms, she explains, “I couldn’t see, had the blurred vision, the vomiting. It was awful.”
She was frustrated by the lack of results. Eventually, her headaches became so severe that she was hospitalized for management. Her neurologist consulted an ear, nose, and throat specialist. Dr. Howard Herman of the Sinus Center of Atlanta. He saw her in the hospital and immediately recognized that her problems were probably being caused by severe sinus congestion. A sinus CT scan confirmed the suspicions. Traditional treatments for such profound blockages would require invasive surgery that would remove bone and tissue and entail a long recovery period. Fortunately, the physicians at the Sinus Center of Atlanta have extensive knowledge about new minimally-invasive sinus drainage techniques such as balloon sinuplasty.
“With balloon sinuplasty,” says Dr. Herman, “we can open things up without removing the nasal lining, so you don’t have the crusting and scar formation, so patients heal faster and their sinuses remain open. This is the future of surgical intervention for sinuses. It allows us to get better results, less pain, and a faster return to normal life.” Dr. Young An agrees, "I've had many balloon sinuplasty patients notice an immediate change in the breathing and feel well enough to return to work the next day." After her treatment, Stefanie exclaimed, “The change was tremendous, absolutely huge. It was like I came back to being in my life again.”
