Why Yale Medicine?
  • Yale Medicine has the advanced knowledge and equipment to diagnose sinus inflammation accurately.
  • If you need minimally invasive endoscopic sinus surgery, we are experts in performing that procedure.
  • Our physicians know that sinus issues are not just an annoyance, and treat your condition with the respect it deserves.

Sinusitis, or sinus inflammation, is diagnosed in more than 30 million people in the United States each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It can be as annoying as it is common.

Endoscopic sinus surgery is among the treatment options if the inflammation becomes chronic, or long-lasting. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, the surgery causes no discernible change to the look of a patient’s face or nose.

Yale Medicine patients who undergo the procedure, and then manage their conditions with ongoing medication, typically enjoy a reduction in the severity and frequency of their sinus infections.
